Dear Flock,

WELCOME – ARCHBISHOP LAZZAROTTO! With great joy and a deep sense of honour,
we welcome to our district the Apostolic Nuncio to Australia, His Excellency Archbishop
Giuseppe Lazzarotto. It is a sign of great blessing upon us that he should lead us in Eucharist
at Bemerside this weekend. Saint Anthony was a young man filled with the love of God and
an enormous dream that people could be transformed by God’s spirit and the world can be
healed. We pray this weekend that young people especially may “catch” this great zeal of St
Anthony. As this Saint has blessed our district through God’s grace in times past, we pray
that our hearts will be open to the fullness of everything God calls us to be as His faithful
witnesses to the power of the Cross and the presence of Our Saviour in these exciting times.


celebrated over last weekend at Gilroy Santa Maria College. The Gilroy Chapel of Our Lady
was dedicated and blessed by Bishop Michael Putney at a Special Mass celebrated there.
Friends from across many years (and even decades) gathered and shared memories with each
other – some have not seen each other in over half a century! All in all, it was a marvellous
time, and a historic moment not only for the College, but for the wider district.

Until next week – keep cool! Fr Michael Taylor PP
