Prayers of The Faithful
Please keep the following in your prayers and thoughts throughout the coming week:
We pray for builders of our Church, that they never succumb to short-sighted measures to make up for
financial shortfalls or apparent scandals

Joke of the Week
Stan went along to a lecture but was not impressed with the academic style of the
speaker. He complained to a friend as they were leaving the lecture hall: “He uses those
big words so that people won’t know what he’s talking about, because if they knew what
he was talking about, they’d know he didn’t know what he was talking about!”
We pray for businesses and governments that build infrastructure and create public places, that they
keep in mind the common good of all and weigh heavy the means they utilise to achieve their goals.
We pray for architects who design buildings and gathering places, that their work might provide true
experiences of beauty and build environments that provide opportunities for people to come to know
God and each other more fully.
We pray for the tradespeople who do the heavy lifting and invest long hours to maintain our way of
life. We pray especially in thanksgiving for their families who make sacrifices which seem to go
unnoticed and unappreciated in many areas of community.
Rosters
St Denis Part of Open House Building Exhibition
Rosters for the period 29 November 2014 to the 31 May 2015 are being
prepared.
Last week the Parish Church was listed among 200 other buildings to be part of the Open
House Building Exhibition in Perth. There were more than 100 architects who visited our
church building over the two days.
Could all those who are involved in any of the Ministries advise the Parish
Office of their unavailability for this period by the 18 November 2014.
It was a positive experience for the parish and has proved to be a wonderful Public relations
event for the Parish.

I would like to thank Peter Pullen for his initiative and effort in having our parish Church

So well done Peter and everyone else who contributed.
