News from GIFT - March 31
Recently the commercial freezer at Link Community Food Care stopped working, this freezer was used to store the GIFT meals we prepare so cook-offs were on hold until it could be replaced.
A huge THANK YOU to Darren Coleman at Winning Appliances Brookvale for sourcing a new freezer at a great price and donating $500 towards the cost – our community coming together to help our marginalised neighbours on the northern beaches.
New parishioners are invited to take a New Parishioners Welcome Kit in the green package at the back of the church, and please make yourself known at the parish office.
We have a variety of bibles for sale at the parish office.
Cost: $15 for the Gift Bible, $20 for the Children's Bible and Usborne Miniature Bible, $25 for Beginners Bible.
We are always looking for volunteers to help out at St Kieran's and St Cecilia's. Children's Liturgy at St Kieran's is held every week and is on at St Cecilia's Church on the third Sunday of the month during school term.
Thanks to everyone who has donated used stamps to the parish office. Please keep the donations coming! Over the past year, over $12,000 has been raised!! These stamps are trimmed, sorted and sold the proceeds going to Sisters Mission in Peru.
If anyone has a business or access to large numbers of stamps please contact Carmel 9938 1103 to arrange for collection.
Bible usage can be HABIT forming! Regular reading can cause loss of anxiety and fear, decreased appetite for lying, cheating, stealing, hating, anger and envy. SYMPTOMS include: increased sensation of love, joy, peace, compassion and contentment. IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST, just praise the Lord!
