Fr Dave jubilee cutting cakeI wish to thank everyone for their presence at my Mass of Thanksgiving last Sunday. It was a wonderful occasion for all involved - our parish community, visitors, and my family, friends and Augustinian brothers and sisters from far and wide. Thank you for your prayers and kind wishes and the many generous Parish and personal gifts. Particular thanks to the Parish Team and all involved in organising the morning tea afterwards and to those who made our liturgy so memorable. Thanks to all of you for this very special day!

augustinian logoThe Diocese of Broken Bay has invited the Sisters of Our Lady of Consolation to establish a community in the diocese. This weekend, Sister Josie Mabini and Sister Jennifer Canillas arrived from the Philippines and are now resident in the Parish of Toukley. They are accompanied by Sister Edith Gicana, Provincial Councillor, who will assist them to settle in to their new surroundings. The Sisters’ ministry will focus initially on work in local Catholic schools in the Toukley area. Sister Josie is well-known in our North Harbour Community and we welcome the Sisters’ return and support them with our prayers.

Peters PenceThis week we join with other Parishes across the world in taking up the Peter’s Pence Collection. The Peter’s Pence Collection provides for the charitable works and structures of mercy identified by His Holiness, Pope Francis. By supporting this collection, you join with other Parishes across the world in supporting projects identified by the Pope including emergency assistance to those in need due to natural disaster, war, oppression and disease. Our generosity allows the Holy Father to respond to those suffering with love and compassion. Thank you for your generosity.

naidoc 2019Today is Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday, a day to celebrate and give thanks for the gifts that our First Peoples bring to the Church. They have an irreplaceable role in shaping the story and identity of the Australian Church, and we will never become the Church we are meant to be apart from the wisdom of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
