11TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME...
The Gospel reading today contains the parable of the mustard seed.
It reminds us that through God's care and blessing great
things can grow from even the smallest of efforts.
It is important that we place our thoughts, our words,
our actions, our ideas and inspirations into God's hands,
and that we invite God to bless and to use all of these
things for the greater good of the kingdom and for
the greater good of the Church on Earth.

PLANNED GIVING PROGRAM
Parish life is celebrated in many different ways:
liturgies, sacraments, evangelisation, funerals, social functions etc.
An important aspect of Parish life is the administration be it financial
or edifice (i.e. construction and maintenance)
Sunday weekly offerings are revenue of the Parish financial administration.
In order to avoid misunderstandings, it is emphasised that the two collections
serve two very different purposes.
First collection goes to the Fathers
(your offerings, mass intentions & sacramental offerings—
a percentage of which goes to the Archdiocese)
and Second Collection goes towards Parish-Church necessities.

Planned Giving collections is the main source of Parish income.
Please note that any loose (from 2nd collection),
shrine offerings and social functions and any other donations all contribute to Parish income.

PLANNED GIVING ENVELOPES...
new sets of envelopes commence on 4 July.
For those of you who still prefer using the Envelopes
please see Rita at all Masses on Sunday 20 June or ring the Office.
There are only 125 sets this year.
Mater Christi Parish is not registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient
so there is no tax deductibility for donations.
Therefore no Receipts will be issued

THE BLESSED SACRAMENT...
‘The Blessed Sacrament is the Body of Christ
under the appearance of a small flat bread host
That was consecrated at Mass.
It is Jesus Christ really present in the Tabernacle
that makes a Catholic Church or Chapel a sacred space.
As Catholics enter and leave a Church they reverence
the Tabernacle by genuflecting, which is
bending down on one knee, or by bowing.’


DIOCESAN ASSEMBLY 17 & 18 SEPTEMBER 2021
As part of preparation for this Assembly,
on the weekend of 26 & 27 June,
the Diocesan Assembly video will be played
at all Masses in place of the Homily.
Consultation questions will follow which
will allow Parishioners time to respond.
