Happy New Year 2021

Happy New Year 2021

All Capuchin Friars in Leichhardt, together with all the Parish and Friary staffs wish you a Happy New Year 2021. May this year bring new optimism, joy and blessing to you and your family.

Spiritual Project of Our Parish

In line with the spiritual renewal echoed by the Archdiocese of Sydney, I invite you and all St Fiacre’s parishioners to prioritise our focus on implementing the Archdiocese Mission Plan, Go Make Disciples. This plan is our vital “project” this year and in the future. So, let us do it together. The more people actively get involved, the better the results will be.

As you can see from their website (www.gomakedisciples.org.au), the idea of our Archdiocese is excellent. However, to produce good results, we need to establish teamwork/network in our Parish. Yes, this project is entrusted to us (you and me), as an integral part of the Archdiocese. Therefore, may I invite you to join the team? If you can spare a little time and energy to helping the Parish, that would be great. Our parish needs some more people who can help in the formation and development of faith:  RCIA, Sacramental Program, and Children’s Liturgy. I don’t need a qualification; I just need your availability and love for God and the Church. Many thanks for helping!

Therefore, if you could help, please contact me (Fr Pio) personally after Mass, or call the Parish Office: (02) 9518 0650. I will explain more things to you.

Service NSW App

To ensure that we comply with the new regulation from the NSW government, everyone who enters the church/hall must register. Our Parish uses two systems: manual and digital. Manual registration is intended only for those who do not have a smartphone. However, if you have a smartphone, I encourage you to download the Service NSW app here: App Store or Google Play. Please follow the instructions until you finish successfully, then use the app as follows:

  • Scan the QR code with your smartphone camera or QR code reader. (The QR code is available at the church entrance, or at the top of the first page of this bulletin).
  • Follow the prompts on the Service NSW app or on the service NSW webform.
  • Show a staff member that you’ve signed in.

Many thanks for your supports and cooperation. May God bless you and your family. HAPPY NEW YEAR! – Fr Pio.
