Here are the announcements for the 2nd Sunday of Advent, the 10th of December:

Fr Adam Carlow, newly ordained Priest for the Diocese of Parramatta will be the celebrant for December. Fr Adam will be bestowing his first blessing upon the faithful in attendance and receiving the blessing from a newly ordained Priest, the faithful are eligible to receive a plenary indulgence. The conditions to receive a plenary indulgence are to go to Confession, Mass and receive Holy Communion, then to pray for the intentions of the Holy Father (Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory be).

The December Working bee will be Saturday 16th December and will conclude about 1pm. After this we invite all volunteers and their families of the Shrine to come along for a Christmas BBQ at the Monastery. This is a chance to get together before the busy time of Christmas and for the Pauline Community to THANK YOU for all your wonderful service throughout the year. Please RSVP Fr Richard asap.

Thank you to all who participate at the monthly morning teas. These are great successes and a chance for people to meet one another and the Pauline Community. The next Morning Tea will be: Sunday 17th December.
