CWF Appeal 2021, Saint Francis Week, Do you Have a Prayer Request, RCIA will Start Soon, Devine Mercy and Holy Rosary during October

CWF Appeal 2021

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ! As I had mentioned last week, this Sunday, we would like to make a special donation to support the charitable works carried out in our archdiocese. Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP invites us to help our brothers and sisters who are homeless, mentally ill, and who live in the deaf and disabled community. Therefore, if you could, please give generously ($50 or more) so that the support we provide can be felt by those who need it. Donations can be made at or via the “Our Faith Our Works” app here: Don’t forget to include the name of your Parish: “St Fiacre’s Parish, Leichhardt.” Thank you very much for your generosity!

Saint Francis Week!

Next Sunday, 3rd October, all Masses in our Parish will be dedicated to celebrating the Solemnity of Our Seraphic Father, Saint Francis of Assisi. On this date, all Franciscan families worldwide celebrate it with joy, including the Capuchin Friars in Leichhardt. In connection with this event, Fr John Nguyen OFMCap, from the Vocation Director office, invites all young men and women interested in Franciscan spirituality to join the “Saint Francis Week” event, which starts from 28th September to 5th October. The entire series of events can be seen on the Facebook event page here:
