WHATS ON

 

FEAST OF ST ANNE AND ST JOACHIM

Joachim and Anne are named as Mary’s parents in a late second century tradition.  Churches dedicated to Saint Anne are found in Jerusalem and Constantinople from the middle of the sixth century.  The feast of Saint Anne was kept in Rome by the eighth century, that of Saint Joachim from the fifteenth century.  The feast honours the parents of the Virgin Mary and grandparents of the Lord.

The Parish will celebrate with a whole school Mass at St Anne’s at 10am on June 26 and followed by Grandparent’s Day at St Anne’s Primary School.  The celebrations begin today July 24 with a parish dinner to mark Xmas in July.

REQUIEM

The requiem for Mr Bryan Barmby will be on Tuesday July 26 at 11am at St Bede’s.

First Eucharist will be celebrated in our parish over the weekends of August 20/21 and 27/28.  The catechist classes for children not attending one of the parish primary schools commence on Monday July 25 at 4.30pm in the Jarrow Room at St Bede’s and Monday August 1 at 4pm in the Multi-Purpose Hall at St Anne’s.  For more information contact the Parish Office.
