from Fr Satheesh

Dear Parishioners,

This weekend the readings remind us of our Divine adoption as God’s children and of our call to preach the Good News of Jesus by bearing witness to God’s love, mercy and salvation, as revealed through Jesus: “God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world.” (Eph 1:4).

I wish to thank the social justice community at Terrey Hills for hosting the Singing Up Country last weekend. It was a wonderful event and celebrated so much of our community and Indigenous people of Australia. Congratulations to Anne Lanyon and the team for your great enthusiasm and hard work.

Thank you for your wonderful support with the Vinnies Winter Appeal. 

We will be holding a collection for St. Peter’s Pence in the weekend of 20/21 July. This collection is to support the Holy Sea.

I encourage everyone to consider volunteering in our wonderful parish. There are notes in this bulletin about ways you can volunteer.

On July 27th there will be a meeting in our school hall where we will be given feedback on the Northern Beaches Discernment process. At this meeting we will hear back from Patti about the responses from the Northern Beaches Discernment discussions that have been going on in our parishes. This will also be an opportunity to reflect and add to the discussion of the Northern Beaches Pastoral Discernment. Please RSVP:

Please remember and pray for the following people in your prayers as they move closer to the Altar. Deacon Hien Vu will be ordained to the Order of the Presbyterate at the Cathedral Church of Our Lady of the Rosary, Waitara, on Saturday 24 August 2024 at 11:00am. Mr. Rosan Mathew will be ordained to the Order of the Diaconate at Our Lady of the Rosary Church, The Entrance, on Saturday 21 September 2024 at 5:00pm. Also, Bishop Anthony will admit Mr. Kevin McGregor as a candidate for Holy Orders (the Diaconate) at Our Lady of the Rosary Cathedral, Waitara, on Saturday 3 August 2024 during the Vigil Mass at 5:00pm. Mr. Kevin McGregor had an appointment here in our Parish as part of his formation.

I would like to welcome all visitors to our churches and please come and say hello to us when you are at mass.

May God Bless you
Fr Satheesh Antony OSH
