New Parishioners: we have been blessed by the arrival of many new Parishioners in recent months. Next Sunday, 23rd January, we will hold two meetings in the school hall, one from 9.15 – 10.00 am, and the second from 12.15 – 1.00 pm, to provide an opportunity for newer Parishioners to ask any questions about the Parish and the traditional liturgy, and (time permitting) to provide practical guidance for participation in the traditional Mass.

St John Henry’s Bookroom is open once again after the Sunday morning Masses, and by arrangement. We have new supplies of Daily Missals, as well as Calendars for 2022. We are planning an upgrade to the Book room this year, and we are seeking to broaden the range of books and pious goods. Anyone interested in assisting with this is invited to contact Fr Tattersall, who is constituting a bookroom committee.

Census: we are currently conducting a Parish census, and ask both long-standing and newer parishioners to take part. This will help us to keep in touch with all parishioners, and better serve your needs. Completed census forms may be given to the porters after Sunday Mass, delivered to the office at Maryvale between 10 am & 2 pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, posted to Maryvale, or scanned and sent electronically to the Secretary. All census information is kept confidential.

Planned giving envelopes for 2022: these are available for collection in the Church vestibule after each Sunday Mass, or may be posted to you upon request.

Altar Service: all male Catholics who have made their First Holy Communion are eligible and welcome to serve at the Altar. Those under 18 require parental permission. Those aged 18 and over must provide a current Working with Children Card. We are currently seeking and training new servers. Generally, training is available at 11 am Saturdays, and 9 am Sundays, but other times can also be arranged. Anyone wishing to join the serving team is invited to contact Fr Tattersall or any of the senior servers.

Tea & Coffee room: we hope to resume serving tea & coffee after Sunday morning Masses, in February. Meanwhile, we are looking for additional volunteers to assist with this (a roster will be drawn up). More details will be available soon, but in the meantime anyone wishing to volunteer is invited to contact Peter Janssen at .

Thank you: the Holden family would like to extend their sincere thanks to all those who sent love and support through prayers, cards, flowers and gifts, after Brendan’s passing. Your support was overwhelming, and gratefully received at this very difficult time. A Mass will be offered for you in gratitude.

Australia Day Friendly Cricket Match and Picnic will be held at Caulfield Park Cricket Ground (main oval North of the lake) on Wednesday 26th of January, from 5pm, followed by a picnic dinner at the Aviary Gardens (next to the playground on Inkerman Road). Join us for a few hours of friendly cricket, and stay for a picnic dinner. BYO picnic rugs and bring a plate to share. Please email Madeleine () to register a team of 11 – all skill levels welcome!
