2021 COLUMBAN CALENDARS: The Columban Art Calendar is an iconic Catholic Calendar, well-known for its traditional religious paintings and liturgical information and is a major fundraiser for Columban Missionaries. The calendars are selling in the church porch for $10.00 each.
COVID-19 PHASE 4 IS STILL IN PLACE: As you would be aware, the Western Australian Government has announced a further deferral to the commencement of Phase 5 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap. Based on the latest health advice, Phase 4 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap has been extended. The new date for Phase 5 is yet to be announced. Phase 5 would see remaining restrictions removed, except Western Australia’s hard border and access to remote Aboriginal communities. Fr Paul Raj.
REVISION OF ARCHDIOCESAN DIRECTIVES: On 24 June 2020, Archbishop Costelloe SDB issued directives for Churches and Chapel within the Archdiocese of Perth which reflected the introduction of Phase 4 of the Western Australian government’s COVID 19 roadmap. These directives are available on the Archdiocese of Perth’s website. In light of the Western Australian government’s extension of Phase 4, the Archdiocese is currently reviewing current health advice with the view to revising and reissuing the Archdiocesan guidelines as soon as is practicable. The Archdiocese has given permission to go ahead with Confirmation. Altar Servers and Acolytes are now free to hold the Liturgy Prayers for the Celebrants. Altar Servers welcome back to the Ministry. I thank you for your patience and understanding as the Archdiocese undertakes this process and the relevant due diligence required in the engagement of expert advice. In our Community: ✨Keep the social distancing. ✨Use sanitiser when entering the church. ✨Wash your hands often if necessary. ✨If you are unwell, stay home. ✨If you feel coughing, sneezing due to spring weather, it is ok to wear a mask. Support your church and priests. Thank you to all who have been supporting our Parish and priests financially. We need your continuous support to get back to normal financially. Please consider joining in our planned giving programme. Fr Paul Raj.
CHRISTMAS CARDS: We have Christmas Cards for sale at the back of the church. The price is $2.50 for 8 cards. This is a great way of staying in touch with family and friends, near and far.
SVDP HILTON: While we thanking you for your generosity we now are asking for your support to make up Christmas Hampers for the needy families of our Parish. We placed a box at the church foyer for Breakfast Food, Canned and Packaged Food and Christmas Goodies. WE also appreciate money donations which can be put in the poor box at the left-hand side as you are exiting the church. Once again Thank You for your generosity and wishing you all a Happy and Blessed Christmas. Kind regards, Charlie Jones.
CLEAN AND SANITISE THE PEWS: You can see the wipes in the church in many places. You are requested to clean, wipe and sanitise your pews / seats, before you leave the church. Your support to keep our church hygienic is much appreciated. Thanks heaps – Fr Paul.
OLD MAGAZINES: Parishioners, please do not bring and place at the back of the church old magazines, medals, booklets, leaflets, etc. It is against CODID-19. Also, after people use the bulletin, either take home or dispose in the bin. Thank you – Fr Paul.
