Assumption of Our Lady – tomorrow, Monday 15th August: the Assumption is a Holy Day of Obligation. Masses will be offered that day at St Aloysius’ at 7 am (Low), 10 am (Low) & 7 pm (Solemn).

Renewal of the Consecration of the Newman Parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary: we will renew the Consecration of our Parish to the Immaculate Heart after each Mass on Sunday, 21st August (the feast of the Immaculate Heart falls the next day, 22nd August). In preparation for this, parishioners are invited to pray daily St John Henry Newman’s Litany to the Immaculate Heart, beginning today (14th August): https://servi.org/litany-of-the-immaculate-heart-of-mary-by-cardinal-newman

Parish membership – Registration: as the Newman Parish is a non-territorial or “personal” parish in Canon Law, membership of the Parish is not through domicile in the physical boundaries of a local area, but through registration. All those who attend Mass with us regularly either at St Aloysius’ Caulfield North or at St Paul’s Kealba, are encouraged to register formally as parishioners. If you are already receiving our Bulletin electronically each week, it is likely you are already registered. If you do not receive this weekly mail out, then you are probably not registered. If in doubt, please email the Secretary. Registration can be done quickly and simply via our website or via the following link https://newmanparish.org/parish-membership.html.

Support for seminarians: Deacon Murphy, Anthony Ike & Liam Cain are all grateful for the financial support they have received from parishioners to assist with the various costs of their formation in approved traditional Institutes. If you would like to join these supporters – either by a one-off gift, or a regular donation - please consider contributing via our dedicated account, for the support of seminarians from our Parish who are studying in traditional seminaries. The details of the account are: Account name - Traditional Seminarians Fund; BSB – 633 000; Account number – 167 975 267. Deacon Murphy returns to seminary in France towards the end of August. We will farewell him at morning tea after Solemn Mass on Sunday, 21st August.

Bookstore: don’t forget to have a look in the Bookstore, which is open after the 8 am & 10.30 am Masses every Sunday. We have new stock for sale this weekend, including Treasure & Tradition, which is a fine introduction to the Traditional Mass.
