NOVEMBER – MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS
November is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Souls. It is our duty to pray for them especially those who have no one to pray. This is our Catholic obligation. During November, Masses will be celebrated for our dearly departed. To have names included please fill out the November Mass envelopes found on the side table of the Church or please ask at the Monastery.
DIOCESAN ADVENT PROGRAM
This year the theme of the Wollongong Advent program is “The Sign”. This fantastic production is an initiative of the Diocese of Wollongong and lays out a short reflection each day during the season of Advent and Christmas. What better way to prepare a way for the Lord. The Booklets are available at the side table of the Church and are $7 each.
This is a periodic reminder that we still need volunteers to help in various capacities in the Shrine. Areas of need are in Reading at the Masses, collectors, ushers for both Sundays and Fatima days, drivers for the buggy’s on Fatima Day and general maintenance. If you are interested or willing to commit, please speak to Fr Richard.
