TO LEAD ALL PEOPLE TO THE SOURCE OF LIVING WATER
We want you to be part of creating a community where all who come to praise God – the regular, the intermittent, the unchurched –will feel valued, accepted, nourished and loved.
We want to expand our welcoming ministry and invite you to consider being part of it.
Could you help to convey a sense of joyful welcome?
Some ways are:
join one of our Parish groups
pray for us to become a more welcoming community
visit a new parishioner or someone unable to attend mass
greet those coming to worship in the carpark, the foyer or the Hall
teach some of the younger parishioners knitting or car/building maintenance
cook or take a meal to someone who needs our care
meet someone new at Mass every week and remember their name

Love in a Bag 2020
Supporting our local 'Vinnies'
During this hard time for so many people, our Henley Beach “Vinnies” (St Vincent De Paul Society) are struggling to keep up with supplies for the many calls they are receiving from people needing assistance. This year our “Love in a Bag” project will be slightly different to previous years.
We are helping make Life Giving food hampers;
Hampers that show someone cares, which our local “Vinnies” team will distribute to those in need.
Over the next 12 weeks we would like people to bring to the Parish office porch area, some specific items (during normal “open” 9 to 4.30pm Monday to Friday). There will be tubs inside the Parish Porch area for these to be dropped off when you are passing by.
If you are unable to drop your items off, but would like them collected from you, please call Cheryl on 0427351008.
As these are to make up food hampers, which are needed urgently, it is not necessary to bring them in the order as per below. You can bring a few items at a time; random order is great as this will let the hampers be filled & distributed sooner!
