Legion of Mary:
The Legion of Mary will be conducting a recruitment drive at St Anthony’s Church, Noble Park and Resurrection Church, Keysborough on the weekend of 25th and 26th February. Both parishes have had active Legionaries for many years and are looking to recruit additional members to continue and expand our apostolic work and service to the community.
The Legion was founded in Ireland in 1921 as an apostolic organisation for lay men and women of all ages, at the service of the Church. It now has 3 million members throughout the world. The object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the personal holiness of its members and active co-operation in the work of the Church. We seek to develop our personal holiness through prayer and active spiritual work in assisting and reaching out to others in the parish, particularly those who are sick, lonely or bereaved.
Legionaries look to our Blessed Mother Mary as our model for our lives. We aspire after Mary’s humility, obedience, sweetness, continual prayer, patience, wisdom, self-sacrificing courageous love of God and above all her faith.
We work in close union with the priest, in pastoral duties which includes visitation to the homes of parishioners, visitation of the sick in their homes and in nursing homes, taking Holy Communion to the housebound and the teaching of religious instruction to children.
To find out more about the Legion of Mary, please speak to us after Mass on February25th and 26th.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
We need 3 more people to vacuum the Church. You would be on a roster once a month, either a Friday or Saturday. Please give Carmel a ring on 0409 358 683. Thank you.

Corpus Christi College Seminary trains our Diocesan Priests. While in formation, we first commit ourselves to the Diocese at our Ordination as transition Deacon. This usually takes place the year before we are ordained a priest. During our formation we celebrate minor orders Acolyte and Lector. This Sunday 11am Mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dominic and two other seminarians will be accepted into the Ministry of Acolyte, which is to assist in the ministry at the Altar, assisting the deacon and priest. Dominic, congratulations on being called to this ministry. May you continue to hear God’s invitation in your formation.

PADUA - JUNE EDITION - How are you going with your article for our June edition of Padua?
Thank you to those who have already submitted one. The shepherding theme is strong.
To give you some ideas, you might think about any person who has been a good influence on you regarding your personal or professional life. Maybe your best friend, or a work mate or a teacher who helped you make decisions to fulfill your dreams.
Many parishioners from migrant backgrounds could share the story of how their family made the decision to leave their 'home' country for Australia. All these stories make us the vibrant interesting place that we are!
Looking forward to your shepherding stories.
