During today’s Mass, we will hear a specially prepared homily from Archbishop Mark Coleridge and will be holding a collection for the Annual Catholic Campaign.
This Campaign happens just once a year and involves every parish across our Archdiocese coming together to expand the Church’s capacity to care. Funds raised will support ministries that directly impact this parish. The Campaign supports training future priests, caring for elderly priests when they are no longer able to serve our parish, helping families access a Catholic education and caring for those suffering physically and emotionally in our local community. If you would like to donate, please take one of the specially marked envelopes that are placed throughout the church.
As a direct beneficiary of your kindness during my seven years at Holy Spirit Seminary I would like to say a heartfelt thank you. The Seminary, at Banyo, trains seminarians to minister in the five dioceses of Queensland and part of the funds raised in this campaign contributes to the housing, feeding and educational costs of these fine men.
