Thoughts from the presbytery – 21 June

  • Congratulations to the thirty-four young parishioners from Yass and Gunning receiving their first Holy Communion this weekend. I am extremely grateful to Di Carey, John Duncan and our Sacramental Teams who have supported the parents as these young people receive Jesus in the Eucharist.  To the parents, it is your responsibility to continue to nurture your children in a love for the food of life by regular attendance at Mass.
  • As we approach the end of the financial year, those parishioners who contribute to the Sacrificial Planned Giving will receive a tax invoice soon. Only five percent can be claimed as tax exempt which contributes to school insurance.  I encourage as many as possible to join our Planned Giving program, as we are stretched to pay for ongoing maintenance.
  • At our Yass/Gunning Belun meeting, we decided to build accommodation for those who staff our clinics in Usi Tasae. We have been given land by a local family for this purpose.
