About Our Parish
New resources available from the Centre for Liturgy website
STEWARDSHIP: Theology of Stewardship – Giving Thanks in the Bad Times … Our basic sense of who we are and what we are about in our world ought to be shaped by this mission of Jesus. If that does not give some shape to how we use our time, talent and treasure, then we might ask how much of our self-consciousness is shaped by our Christian faith.
CARMEL OF THE HOLY TRINITY GIFT SHOP: The Carmelite Sisters have established an online shop to assist with maintenance works and to preserve their Chapel and Monastery buildings. Please visit their shop online at: www.holytrinitycarmel.com.au.
OLMC PIETY STALL: Open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday mornings before and after 9am Masses. Please contact Marion on 0415 917 496 for more information.
5¢ & 10¢ COIN FUNDRAISING: Please support our 5¢ & 10¢ fundraising by taking a canister and filling with coins and returning to the parish office or church foyer. We hope to reach $180,000.00 dollars with fundraising to be able to commence building our Parish Centre.
PROJECT COMPASSION: Fifth Sunday of Lent – 21st March 2021… Halima is raising two children in a Bangladeshi refugee camp while caring for her mother, who has a disability. A Caritas Australia-supported program helped her with a shelter, cooking equipment and hygiene training. Halima now earns a small income as a trainer, helping to maintain the health and cleanliness of her community. Please donate to Project Compassion 2021 so this transformational program can continue to empower vulnerable women, men and children, and strengthen the communities around them. You can donate through Parish boxes and envelopes, by visiting www.caritas.org.au/projectcompassion or phoning 1800 024 413.
WOMEN WHO ANOINT JESUS – Recovering the Memory: Amidst the violence and betrayal of Jesus’ final days, when even those closest succumb to fear and denial, the scriptures draw us into a tender encounter of mutually empowering love: a woman anoints Jesus and prepares him for what lies ahead… As a new heroism emerges from a Covid world and the uselessness of individualism, mechanistic responses and competition is exposed, may we recover the tender power of the anointing stories, and discover why all four evangelists chose to tell them… Presenter: Dr Pina Ford Team Leader Catechist Service… The Council for Catholic Women Perth warmly invite you to join us at James Nestor Hall, Catholic Education Office, 50 Ruislip Street, West Leederville on Monday 29 March at 5.30-8.30pm. Gather for light refreshments at 5.30-6pm. RSVP by Friday 26 March to Kerry at email@example.com or 0400 886 835. All welcome.
CONGRATULATIONS: Michael Christ and Stephanie Kuzmar were happily married on Saturday 20 March at our church. We wish them God’s blessings and happy married life from OLMC Parish.
