Nominations for the new Parish Pastoral Council close next Sunday.
There are nomination forms on the back table of the Church to nominate
Parishioners from both Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Fatima
Parishes. Thank you for giving this important role in our Parish some
serious thought.
Children's Liturgy has been held at Our Lady of Lourdes for many years
now during 9:15 am Mass. I am very grateful to the volunteers who give of
their time to share the Scriptures with our primary school children. Next year
I would like to begin Children's Liturgy also at the 10:30 am Mass. I am
looking for volunteers to assist at both Masses. Sister Stella will provide
training during January so we can begin children's liturgy at both Masses
next February. Please contact Sister Stella at the Parish office if you can

As we prepare for the new Church refurbishment at Our Lady of Lourdes
Church we need to demolish an old toilet block in the backyard of the
Church and build a new storage shed. If you can help us to knock down the
brick wall block, remove the cement slab and transport the rubbish, could
you please contact Karrin in the Parish office.
The Parishioners at Our Lady of Fatima will notice there is a new sign on
the street front outside the Church. There has been a sign there for a long
time advertising our Parish School but now the sign advertises both the
school and the Church at Our Lady of Fatima.
Have a good week everyone.
Fr Dan.

Reflections on the Readings for Dedication of the Lateran Basilica: Year A
Today we are reminded how God is with us in sacred places, especially in the Temple,
and how this presence is fully realised in Jesus and his community of the Church.
First Reading: Ezekiel 47: 1-2, 8-9, 12
We hear a vision of the Temple in Jerusalem with its water as a source of life.
Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 3:9-11, 16-17
The community of the Church is the Temple of God.
Gospel: John 2:13-27
Jesus takes a stand about the real purpose of the Temple and, from this, speaks of the temple of his own

happy note. They will be playing 50’s and 60’s music,
so if you want to don your 50’s and 60’s gear on the
day – please do! Although it depends on what fits
these days, doesn’t it?

invited to come along and enjoy an early Christmas
Lunch with us. Members - $20.00 and non-members
are more than welcome to join us – cost $25.00.
(Sorry – but we subsidize our members in lots of ways
during the year). There will be lots of raffle prizes of
Christmas Hampers for you to win on this day too.
We are looking forward to the next two final functions
for the year with the promise of some happy, friendly
outings to say good-bye to 2014.
