A Single Invitation!

ADVENT is upon us and Christmas is looming large! Already we are feeling pressured to get everything done in time. The next couple of weeks will be filled with things to do and places to go, as the year stuggles to its end. And yet we have this beautiful season of Advent - a time of expectancy and hope - to revel in and celebrate.  Somewhere in all  of this, you might find yourself thinking "I need to simply slow down."  Why not join us on Wednesday evenings for about half an hour, when we will travel together the 'way' of the Incarnatioin. With prayer, mediation and reflective music we will revisit some of the infancy narratives of the Gospels, and travel together in the awe and mystery of new birth and new beginnings. 
See below for details of when and where.


NO matter how you say it, we say  WELCOME ...

A half hour each week before Christmas,
to sit in quiet prayer, with reflective music,
to revisit the journey to the birth of Hope at Christmas.
Wednesday December 6 at 7pm 
Wednesday December 13 at 7pm 
Wednesday December 20 at 7pm,
leading into the celebration of Reconciliation.
At St Therese Church,
Surfcoast Highway

Something Interesting!

ot only is there much happening in our parish, but there is also a great deal happening in the Archdiocese of Melbourne. Each week, the Media and Communications Office of the Archdiocese sends out the Parish Update and it  is filled with all sorts of activites and events that you might find interesting.
Even if you can't make any of the events, it is still worth a look as it reminds us that we belong to a wider church than simply our own parish community.
