Today is Divine Mercy Sunday:
- Weather permitting, there will be a BYO picnic after the 9:15am Mass at Mellor Reserve, Beulah Park (Tennis Courts available);
- There will be Divine Mercy Devotions in Holy Name Church at 3pm.**
This Tuesday and Wednesday Frs McCaffrey and Sofatzis will be in Sydney for a meeting of the FSSP priests of Oceania. Therefore there will be no Masses at Holy Name on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. The other Mass times are as normal. (Fr McCaffrey will be on annul leave from 20th to 26th April.)
The Youth Group will be holding a bake sale after the 8am and 9:15am Masses next Sun. 23 April, to raise money for their upcoming activity days on 28th-29th April. Please stay behind and enjoy a bite to eat next week.
Welcome to new parishioners. If you are new to the Latin Mass or new to Holy Name, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to either Fr McCaffrey or Fr Sofatzis after Mass. There is a cuppa after the 9:15am Mass every Sunday in the tea room behind the church diagonally across the car park. All welcome. Also please feel free to register as a parishioner on our com-munity census. The link is available on the website.
