33rd SUNDAY in ORDINARY TIME
“Building a community of Jesus’ disciples”
We welcome you—We are one family
Readings: Prov 31:10-13, 19-20, 30-31; 1 Thess 5:1-6; Mt 25:14-30

Readings: Ezek 34:11-12, 15-17; 1 Cor 15:20-26, 28; Mt 25:31-46
Profitable servants...
God is demanding and rightly so. His gifts are great and are meant to be used for
the service of mankind. Whatever talent he has given us can be multiplied. Jesus
calls us to be the salt of the earth, the light of the world and we have no right to
hide away the gift of faith that God has given us through him. Or, how many of us
hide behind the cowardly affirmation that we are not good enough? Half-hearted
Christians are worse off than those who have never had the gift of faith.

God’s Blessing
to St Joseph’s
Hospitality volunteers for the
Community Centre
With your service
St Joseph’s Parish is
blessed.
Fr Graham, Parish Staff &
Parishioners
First Reconciliation
This will be celebrated this coming Wednesday evening at 7pm. Please join in
praying for those children and their families. Congratulations to the parents and
leaders for their untiring efforts for the children.
Youth Fundraising Breakfast
Please support the young people who for some time have been attending various Youth Camps
in the Archdiocese. There is one coming up in January as well as a Music Camp. These all need
money as the expense is often too much for families. This breakfast is one way we can raise
some extra funds for that purpose.
Confirmation
Congratulations to Corben who is Confirmed and received into the Catholic Church this weekend at the 7am Mass. Our prayers go with him as he completes Year 12 at St John's and heads
off to Brisbane at the end of the year.
St John's Closing Mass
This Mass to celebrate the year is being held this coming Thursday evening at 6.30pm at the
College.
Manna from Heaven
Over the past year the Parish Finance Committee has been able to reduce expenditure through
more efficient administration. To take this a bit further last week we had some solar panels installed on the galvanised iron roof over the entrance to the church. This it is hoped will make us
more energy efficient as well as save some money.
Farewell
A Farewell to six School Staff members will be held next Sunday at the 9am Mass followed by a
Garden Party in the old Convent grounds. All welcome.
Farewell also to Denis Kidcaff. We wish him every blessing as he leaves Nambour to live in
Gympie this week.

Evangelii Gaudium
“He needs to be able to link the message of a biblical text to a human situation, to an experience
which cries out for the light of God’s word. This
interest has nothing to do with shrewdness or
calculation; it is profoundly religious and pastoral.
Fundamentally it is a ‘spiritual sensitivity for reading God’s message in events,’121 and this is much
more than simply finding something interesting to
say. What we are looking for is ‘what the Lord has
to say in this or that particular circumstance.’”
Par 154 from Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis,
Nov. 24, 2013
Parishioners’ Loans
Repayment—
Community Centre
At this time of year the Parish repays a portion of the Parishioners’ Loans used to help build our
Community Centre. However, at any time, any current lender who is experiencing financial difficulties is encouraged to contact me or the Finance Manager as soon as possible.
The Parish’s aim is to repay all loans over a ten year period. Of the original $43,500 borrowed
from Parishioners, the balance outstanding is now $13,500.
We are very grateful to those lenders who have generously been able to convert their loan into a
gift. I would like to invite any remaining lenders to consider perhaps a partial conversion of some
of their loan to a gift, if in a financial position to do so.
It was only through the generous support of Parishioners that we were able to fund the building of
the Community Centre.
We are enjoying the great benefit of our “gathering area” and centre facilities. Future generations
of Parishioners, also, will be grateful for our sacrifices.
