Greetings and peace to you all!
Father Francis and I welcome you all; praying and hoping we are all kept well, safe and in good health by the grace of God. We consciously remain on the path to some new sense of normality while remaining committed to federal and state governments’ advice and policies as well as advise from the Archbishop’s office in regards to COVID 19 RoadMap. We wish all our young people, their teachers and families who have commenced their school holidays a relaxing and safe time away. We look forward to celebrating First Reconciliation on 27th & 28th October; and Confirmation as scheduled in November this year. Please keep these young people in your prayers. As WA Phase Five COVID 19 restrictions have been delayed to at least Saturday, 24th October, Mini/JAM and school-led Masses will remain on hold until further notice. It is quite evident that a good number of our senior parishioners are understandably still staying away. I call on each of us to remember those of them who are doing it tougher than others; those stuck in aged care or nursing homes with little or no contact from family, those separated from family due to border closures and those whose health puts them at a serious vulnerable risk. Let us assure them that we are thinking of them, praying for them and we love them. They are forever special to us. As always, Fr Francis and I assure you of our ongoing prayers. Please keep us in yours. We commend one and all of you; in this Marian October month, into the powerful intercessions of Our Lady, Mother of good counsel.
Fr Cyprian M Shikokoti – PP.
