      Following last weekend’s explanation of the demand on us towards the Bishop’s "Our Mission Together" appeal, I emailed Fr Phil Moor and agreed that they could take the instalment from the Central Fund account in which Holy Name is well in credit. He has thanked us for that. What we need to do now is to build up that reserve again and to that end it is important that we form a Finance committee as I had spoken about. I did get a few people offer interest in being part of that committee and I ask again this week if there is anyone else who is interested in playing a part in this, if so please let me know.
  When I return from doing my great nephew’s wedding in Sorrento next weekend, I will contact those people to arrange an initial meeting. Thank you for all your support.
  Today, Saturday, we had the first communions in St Peter’s Church and in two weeks’ time we will have the children in Holy Name making their communion. Please remember them in your prayers.
  Also today, Saturday, we celebrate the feast of Pentecost with a joint Mass at St Michael’s Church on the Woodchurch at 6pm. Next weekend I thank Fr Nick Wilde for filling in for me. (I know that secretly he is cursing me for not taking him to Sorrento with me!!)

If you are able to help please phone Ann on 652 3758.
