29th June 2014 Bulletin
Mission Statement: Our Parish is a Christ-centred community. In Baptism we are challenged by the Spirit to live and share 
the Gospel message. Through proclaiming the Gospel message to all, Growth in Faith, Liturgy, Justice Issues and Ecumenism 
we extend our love and care to all people providing support in renewing and deepening our faith. We value the gifts and 
talents of each of our Parishioners and invite them to use these in responding to Christ’s invitation to all of us to follow Him and spread the Good News to the whole world.

special intention during their hour spent in Adoration. A different intention will be prayed for each month thoughout the 
year. In July 2014, we are praying for an increase to the Prieshood and Religious Life. Special prayers for vocations will 
be made available each Thursday morning at the start of the first hour.
