ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE:

Thursday, Dec. 13 - 7.30pm

Second Rite of Reconciliation.
Parishioners are asked to utilise this valuable opportunity for the Sacrament, given that the many demands
of the Advent/ Christmas ceremonies make the provision of additional “First Rite” ceremonies difficult in this last week prior to Chrismas. Five priests will be in attendance so as to ensure no-one has to wait too long.

Friday, Dec. 14 - 10.00 am

Anointing Mass.
Followed by Christmas Seniors’
Morning Tea.  Special “live” entertainment provided.

Monday, Dec. 17 - 7.30pm

Memorial Mass.
