I wish to commend and thank all the Extraordinary Ministers of Communion commissioned today at Mass for their willingness to undertake this important Liturgical Ministry. 

Greetings to our sisters and brothers in Paeroa on the occasion of St Mary’s Parish feast day on Thursday, 8 December (Immaculate Conception). A Mass will be celebrated at 10am. The Pre-Christmas Social will be next Sunday, 11 December after the 11am Mass in Morrinsville. Hope to see you all there. 

There will be a Communal Rite of Reconciliation (Rite II on Tuesday, 20 December in Te Aroha at 7.00pm. Guest priests will come to hear Confessions. This is a good way for us to heed the call of the Gospel: “Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight” (Mt 3:3). 

Next Sunday’s Combined Parishes Picnic – 12 noon – (after 11am Mass ) St Joseph’s School grounds in Morrinsville. This is NOT a shared luncheon. You bring your own lunch. Pack your Picnic basket with Food & Drink and bring a Rug or Deck Chair and Sunhat . (Tea and Coffee only will be available ) BBQ Sausages will be provided for the children. 

Blessings to you all,
Fr JeLo
