Our Mission

 

We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

MESSAGE FROM FR ALAN FOX

Dear Parishioners of St Agnes,

 

I sincerely hope and pray we’re all doing our level best to keep well during this most challenging of years. 2020 is certainly a year we’ll be remembering for a long time to come!

 

This weekend the Church brings to focus the area of social justice, through its annual Social Services Sunday, wherein we’re invited to give thanks and pray for all who stand with, and provide support for those on society’s margins, and other vulnerable people within our communities.

 

The parish bulletin has some links in relation to the Social Justice Statement recently issued by the Australian Catholic Bishops, entitled ‘To Live Life To The Full’ – Mental Health in Australia Today, and there’s also an invitation from St Dominic’s Parish, East Camberwell, to participate in an online seminar surrounding the Bishop's Social Justice Statement. These may be of interest to you.

 

The Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP) Trivia Night has been moved to an online experience, and the details about how to register are also in the bulletin. All money raised goes to this important outreach to refugees and asylum seekers, a pastoral initiative of the Brigidine Sisters. For further information, visit the BASP website: https://basp.org.au/

 

This weekend’s bulletin also has links to a ‘Letter to the People and Clergy of the Archdiocese’ by Archbishop Peter Comensoli. Also included is a link to the recently revised Guidelines (16/9/20) surrounding the Stage 4 COVID-19 restrictions. More information is available on the Archdiocese’s ‘Pastoral Guidance for Parishes regarding COVID-19’ web page, including an information sheet from the Archdiocese, entitled  ‘A Pathway Through COVID-19’.

 

Go to: https://cam.org.au/Guidance-for-Parishes-COVID-19/  for the most up to date information.

 

Do take care, stay well, and please God it won’t be too long before we’ll have the opportunity to gather as a community of faith, once again.

 

God bless,

 

Fr Alan Fox

Parish Priest

 

N.B. If you have a notice that you would like to include in the bulletin, please email the details through to me at: alan.fox@cam.org.au  by Thursday afternoon, and I’ll do my best to insert the information. I’d suggest you include a contact telephone number in your email correspondence, just in case there’s any need for clarification or editing.
