ORANA OSHC and PUPIL-FREE DAYS

Friday 31 May and Tuesday 4 June are pupil-free days for the school. OSHC are currently taking bookings for both of these dates. The Centre opens at 7.30am on pupil-free days. On Friday 31 May, the children will go on an excursion to the Bean Bag Cinemas. Book early to avoid disappointment as we can only take 40 children on this day. Children must bring a healthy lunch, water bottle and a hat on both days.

WOOLWORTHS EARN AND LEARN PROGRAM

There are only two more weeks to collect and return your points to school. A reminder to parents and students to keep collecting your Woolworths points and return the completed point sheets to school. Points Collection Sheets were sent home with students in the first week of Term 2. There are more available from the front office. We have collected around 5000 points so far which is a long way short of last year's total of 72,500 points. More points = more equipment for Orana. If you don't have enough to fill a sheet, simply place them in the box anyway and we will use them to fill additional sheets. Thank you for your participation. Lisa Stewart

PARISH FEAST CELEBRATION WEEKEND 29 & 30 June

WE ARE FAMILY ..... WE ARE ONE

You are warmly invited to participate in the Sts John and Paul Parish Feast Celebration which will see the return of the MINISTRY FAIR after all Masses on the weekend of 29 & 30 JUNE. This is an opportunity for all Parish Ministries to showcase their talent gathered under one roof and to engender connections between Ministries acknowledging that "all the members, though many, are one." This is also an acknowledgement of the creative talents, the commitment and the inspirational ideas that are evident in our unique and vibrant Parish family.

The feasts of our patron saints St John and St Paul will also be commemorated across the Mass liturgies and in the display of the Parish banners. Hospitality will be on offer with sausage sizzles, savouries and sweets. Bringing a plate to share will be much appreciated.

Two very diverse talks will be presented in the parish around this time and the details are as follows:

"The Second Vatican Council was a time of a grace and renewal for the Catholic Church. Parishes and dioceses all over the world will 'celebrate' VATICAN II in light of the 50th anniversary of the Council."

Living with the Schizo-Affective Disorder

AN EMMANUEL CENTRE INITIATIVE

ST JOHN & PAUL PARISH HALL, WILLETTON

6.00PM - 8.00PM TUESDAY 2 JULY

Presenter: Dr Robert Williams shares his personal experience

"In 2013 there is still stigma associated to mental health problems such as depression, anxiety disorder, psychosis and substance abuse. One in five Australians aged 16-85 suffer from some form of these common mental illnesses in any year. It is time to break down the stigma creating a mentally healthy community that supports recovery and reduces discrimination.

Stigma contributes to loneliness, distress and discrimination against people with mental illness and their families and carers. Reducing mental health stigma and discrimination is everybody's business."

Reducing mental health stigma and discrimination is everybody's business.

In the meantime, please mark these important dates in your diaries and watch this space for more details about this energising Parish Feast Celebration and thought-provoking talks.…. Stewardship Committee
