MASSES AT SACRED HEART DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

BIRTHDAY MASS & MORNING TEA-for the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY TUESDAY 8th September 10am.

All are welcome to join the  Legion of Mary celebration, especially active & auxiliary members.

WHAT? WHO? Is the LEGION OF MARY ? It is a lay organization, which aims to collaborate in the Church's mission of evangelization. Members place themselves at the service of the Blessed Virgin Mary and wish to help her in her mission as "Mother of the Church."  They carry out regular works of mercy and attend a weekly meeting.      The Legion meet every Thursday 3.30pm in the Marian Room, behind the Adoration Chapel.   Everyone is welcome to drop in to explore the possibility of joining this rewarding apostolate.

SOCIAL JUSTICE THIS SUNDAY 30th August:  This year, the Australian Bishops’ Social Justice Statement is titled: “To Live Life to the Full: Mental health in Australia today”. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the mental health of many members of our parishes, schools and communities. Understanding mental health will help us to be aware of those who need our support. The Bishops invite us all to reject stigmatisation, to work for the transformation of social determinants of mental ill-health, and to call for policies and service provision that meets the needs of the poorest and most marginalised members of our community. You can download the full Statement at www.socialjustice.catholic.org.au (or several copies available at the back of the church)
