SOCIAL JUSTICE - INVITATION TO A FILM EVENING
The parish social justice group has obtained a copy of the awarding winning documentary film “Chasing Asylum” and would like to invite members of the parish community to a Film Night on Friday 25 August 2017 commencing at 6:30pm in the Parish Library. A warn cup of soup will be served from 6:30pm followed by the film commencing at approximately 7pm. Chasing Asylum explores the impact of Australia’s off-shore detention policies and explores the mental, physical and fiscal consequences of these policies. For all us interested in social justice this is a film that needs to be seen. To assist us with catering for the evening an attendance sheet will be placed at the back of the Church and we ask those intending to attend to add their name to this attendance sheet. Admission will be by a gold coin donation.

Safeguarding is an essential part of volunteering in certain ministries in the Parish and it is of paramount importance that the volunteers who are obligated to go, attend this session in order to make sure that we are compliant according to the Archdiocese. The session is also open to anyone who wishes to attend of their own accord. The next session will be Saturday 26th August 2017 – 9am to 12pm.
