We take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to all those who will be visiting us. We are pleased that you have come to worship with us. The doors and hearts of our parish family of FAITH are always open, and we invite you to contact us at any time.
World Mission Sunday will be celebrated on October 23rd, 2016.
World Mission Sunday is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church’s missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice. The theme this year is “Mercy Changes the World,” and is a call to put faith in action. Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, reflects this call when he asks each one of us to “give voice to those not able to make their cries of pain and oppression heard.”
Your ongoing support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is vital to the missionaries serving in 1,111 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, parts of Latin America and Europe, and on the Islands of the Pacific. Your generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances.
The World Mission Sunday celebration highlights the outreach of local churches through priests, religious and laity among the poor and marginalized half a world away. Life-changing help is provided to mission churches in territories covering more than half the globe.
We are just two (2) weeks left before the big event, scheduled for November 5th, 2016. Both Steak and Chicken tickets are still available, so we encourage all parishioners to please support us. Tickets can be purchased after any of our weekend masses. May God bless you for your generosity.
The next meeting is schedule for Monday, October 24, 2016 at 6:00 PM in the Parish Hall. We urge ALL persons concerned to please be in attendance. For the information of our Parishioners, both the White Elephant and Plant stalls have been eliminated this year, so we do not require any donations for these stalls.
We hope to have another successful Steak out and Mini Fair this year, but we can only succeed with your support.
For persons interested in selling tickets, please collect them from the Parish Office, Monday to Friday between 8.00am and 12 noon.

TIPS TO HELP PREPARE FOR A HURRICANE
It only takes one storm to change your life and community. According to the National Hurricane Centre, the 2016 Hurricane season is expected to be more active than previous years. That said, being prepared and having a plan could make a big difference for your survival if a dangerous storm was to hit our islands.
Here are some tips that may make life easier for you….
Determine your risk—find out what wind and water hazards could happen where you live, and start preparing how to handle them.
Develop an evacuation plan.
Secure an insurance check-up—ensure that you have enough Homeowners insurance to cover repairs, etc.
Assemble disaster supplies—supplies not just to get you through the storm but for the potentially lengthy and unpleasant aftermath.
Strengthen your home—if you plan to ride out the storm in your home, make sure it is in good condition and all repairs completed as quickly as possible.
Identify your trusted sources of information to keep you updated regarding a storm—radio station, cable tv etc.
