The Youth Group’s Activity days are this week (Thurs. 12 to Sat. 14 Jan.). Please see the flyer and information sheets for more info.

If you would like your house blessed during the season of the Epiphany, please let either Fr McCaffrey of Fr Sofatzis know. Blessed chalk and instruction sheets are also be available at the back of the church for you to use to bless your house yourself should you choose to do so.

The funeral Mass for Patricia (Pat) Vice will be this Tues. 10 Jan. at 1pm at Holy Name. All welcome.

Next Sunday Fr Noel Soares will be with us. Fr Soares is a native of Goa, India and was ordained a priest of the FSSP last year. He is stationed in Sydney. Fr will be with us to offer the 9:15am Mass, and to give 1st blessings after the Masses. Please make Fr feel welcome.

Also, next Sunday there will be an informal class for those who are new to the Latin Mass on ‘How to use your Sunday Missal/Missalette’. The class will take place in the Atrium building (next to the play equipment) at 11am. Please bring your missal if you have one.

The “Holy Name Trading Post” will be launched tomorrow. It is for those who wish to promote or find business or other services and/or buy or sell items within the Community. Follow instructions on the parish website here to complete and submit a form for it to be placed on the noticeboard in the Meeting Room.

Playgroup will now be held twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Fridays, starting Feb. 10. All children 0-5 are welcome, with a parent or caregiver, for songs, story time and crafts plus coffee and a chat for the parents! Contact Katherine Augimeri if you would like to help. We’re particularly looking for non-parents who’d like to support the young families of the community with holding babies, tea and coffee, set up and pack up.

The next Exodus 90 program begins this Mon. 9 Jan. If you are interested, please visit or speak to John Middeldorp (0413 055 502).

Please remember also the recently deceased, especially Pat Vice, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and also those whose anniversaries occur about this time.
