SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN and VULNERABLE ADULTS TRAINING
All parishioners who volunteer in any of our minis-tries need to complete the Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Training. It is important that all of us taking a role in Parish life, not just those working with children or the vulnerable attend this training. Wilston Parish has arranged a workshop on Sunday 22nd October from 10.30am to 1.30pm at the Good Samaritan Parish Office, 23 Lovedale St, Wilston. Queen of Apostles parishioners are welcome to participate. Please email the Good Samaritan Parish Office direct pc.kbcc@bne.catholic.net.au to confirm your attendance – indicating you are from Stafford. (RSVP 19th October for catering purposes). Earlier in the year we held training for members of our Parish, but this is a great opportunity for those who missed it.

CATHOLIC MISSION
Our parish will conduct the Catholic Mission appeal on October 14-15. The challenge for all Christians is letting their actions match their words. Walking the talk, so to speak. In today’s gospel, we see Jesus using a parable to ask a question of his disciples: which son does the Father’s will? Those who say one thing but do another; or those who refuse to acknowledge His call on their life but then think better of it and change how they think, live and act? The call to put words into deeds, to act on our faith, is always before us; during this appeal campaign for Catholic Mission, we have a chance to respond to the challenge of today’s Gospel and sup-port missionaries like Sr Mary. They go where we can-not. They said ‘yes’ from the outset – let us do the same, in a spirit of generosity and solidarity. Thank you, in anticipation… David McGovern, Director, Brisbane Archdiocese
