PARISH 60TH ANNIVERSARY
Did you know that Friday 28th April is the 60th anniversary of our parish. Would you like to do something to celebrate this special occasion?? If you would and are willing to help organise it, please contact Fay Robertson or the parish office.

INTERNATIONAL FOOD FEST
International Food Fest last weekend was, as usual, a tremendously enjoyable night of good food, meeting new friends and companionship. A big "thank you" to the Social Committee (Di, James and Liz) and all those from previous and present Pastoral Councils who helped prepare the evening. Another big "thanks" to all who attended and ensured a great night with wonderful food and companionship! Can't wait for next year's!! (By the way, we now have 42 different cultures who celebrate Eucharist with us each weekend – aren't we blessed!

SOCIAL JUSTICE CORNER
Following on from our campaign 2015/16 for Slavery-free Easter Chocolate we remind ourselves of the children, mostly trafficked and enslaved, working long hours in dangerous working conditions with no access to education or other human rights. They have never tasted chocolate. In the past decade much has been achieved. Some big successes are:

  • Cadbury dairy milk chocolate bars made in Australia have been certified Fairtrade.
  • All Mars bars made in Australia are now certified RAINFOREST ALLIANCE.
  • All Nestle chocolate made in Australia and N.Z. is now UTZ certified.
  • Haighs source 70% of their cocoa from UTZ certified farms. Their Easter range is 100% certified
  • ALDI stock a wide range of UTZ certified chocolate and Easter goodies.

And a reminder that The Trading Circle will be selling Fairtrade Chocolate here at Q. of A. at all Masses 1/2 April.

PROJECT COMPASSION
Project Compassion Envelopes are available at the back of the church. The theme this year is "Love your Neighbour." During the course of Lent we will see how Project Compassion is transforming lives.
