MATER CHRISTI PARISH SEATON NEWS

Fr 6th Sunday of Easter (C)
22nd May  2022


Link to Parish Bulletin 

In our Liturgy today we focus on Jesus’ farewell
message as he prepares his followers for their future.
Although he will not be visible among them,
he will be truly present in his Spirit.
His parting gift is the peace of God.

Laudato Sì Week (16-24 May) is a celebration of Pope Francis’
encyclical “Laudato Sì” and a call to action for Catholics
around the world to
care for our common home.
You can participate through prayer, action & reflection
with the new resources for parishes, schools,
organisations and individuals created by the ACBC
Office for Justice, Ecology and Peace.

Adult Confirmation
Adult Confirmation will be held this year on Saturday September 3
at the 6pm Mass in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral.
This is for adults who were baptised as children
 and who have missed celebrating Confirmation.
Anyone wishing to be part of this celebration is asked
to contact Kathy Horan at khoran@adelaide.catholic.org.au.
There will be two preparation sessions for those wishing to be confirmed.
The sessions will be held from 2.30-4pm on
Saturday August 20 and Saturday August 27 from 2.30- 4pm.

The Month of MAY is dedicated 
 to the devotion of Our Lady,
in particular to the recitation of the Holy Rosary.
The Holy Rosary will be recited in the
Church every Monday at 2:00pm.
By no means should this obligation
stop us from reciting the Rosary individually
or together with our families.
The Living Rosary group leads us by their example.

COVID DIRECTIONS from Archbishop...
It is strongly recommended that Parishioners continue
wearing masks. It is my expectation that Priests
and anyone carrying out a public role continue to do so.
We will review further. We ask that you continue to
maintain other hygiene practices during Church services:
1. Regular sanitisation of hands
2. No Offertory Procession & Collections
3. No Communion on the tongue
4. Maintain social distancing
