Christmas Hamper Appeal: again this year the Parish is organizing the Christmas Hamper Appeal in November. Our first step is to ask for expressions of interest from members of the Parish who can assist the Organizing Committee and or assist in other ways. Last year 130 hampers were provided by the Parish to places as far away as Roma on the Downs. To register your interest please call the Parish Office.
Our Lady of the Rosary Parish School Plans: At the Churches this weekend a Proposed ACTION PLAN which the OLR School Pastoral Board has been working on over the last few months, will be on display. Both the Parish Pastoral Council and Finance Council have discussed the plans and have supported these proposals. The first step will be to erect the flag poles on Moggill Rd to enhance some of the improvements being carried out at the moment to make the school and hence the Parish more visible to the public.
Priests Jubilees: At The Priests Jubilee Mass this Thursday Fr Kevin Caldwell will be celebrating 60th year as a priest, Frs Frank O’Dea and Pat Cas-sidy 50 years a priest, Bishop Tim Harris, Frs John FitzHerbert, Paul Chanh and myself will be celebrating 25 years as a Priest.
