Next Saturday morning beginning at 10am with the rosary we will celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The rosary will be followed by Mass and after Mass there will be lunch. There are more details on page 3 of this week's newsletter. Also take note of the details to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima on July 1st.

Next Sunday at the 10:30am Mass at Sunnybank we will celebrate our Multicultural Mass. You are invited to wear your national costume and to bring along your national food to share at lunch after Mass. Mass will be a little different with some of the prayers being prayed in languages of the world, a special gospel procession and multicultural hymns. You are very welcome to attend.

Our youth are preparing for their annual retreat in July which will be held in Toowoomba. Please remember our youth as always in your prayers and encourage the youth of your family to attend the retreat.

A date to write in your diary for a retreat for our parishioners is 15th July. Sister Rosa a Canosian Sister will be leading the retreat. More details on page 3 of this week's newsletter.

Our columbarium (a special place to reserve ashes of those who have died) is proving very popular. The columbarium has been built just outside the right-hand side of the altar at Sunnybank. There are two walls in which to place the ashes. In these two walls there are 172 niches. We have already sold 67 niches. If you would like to make any enquiry about our columbarium please contact the Parish office during normal office hours and Bernadette our Caring Coordinator will help you.

We invite men of all ages to come together in fellowship and enjoy a full barbeque breakfast.  The next breakfast for 2017 will be held on Saturday 1 July 2017 from 7am to 9am in the Avocado Room of the Paloma Reception Centre. Bacon, sausages, eggs, tomatoes, baked beans, toast, jams, juice, tea and coffee are all available for the same cost of $10 per person.
