St Joseph's Newsletter
29th June 2022
We are in dire need of assistance in the op shop- We require volunteers for working a half day or even a full day. No experience or training necessary! We are rostered on three days per month. If you - a member of your extended family or even just some friends are able to offer assistance it would be greatly appreciated. It is a great way to meet new people and to be part of our community.
The funds that we receive from the op shop go directly to the needs of the students. Please if you are willing to be put on a roster of helpers it would be really appreciated.
Please let Jan-Marie know if you or someone you know would be available to assist us.

Sausage Sizzle & Drink Sale: The college Senior Development Netball team is raising funds for a new set of netball uniforms, so bring along a gold coin if you'd like a sausage and a drink!
Last Sunday the theme of the gospel was discipleship. Following in the footsteps of Jesus is no easy task. Each day we make choices -for ourselves and for others. When Jesus called for his first apostles, they were out fishing. Dropping their nets and leaving their families, they went to follow Jesus. This Wednesday we celebrate the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul. Peter became our first Pope while Paul was known for his missionary journeys and the Letters he wrote to his followers. Many times they were challenged in their faith and often they made mistakes but their lives were centered on God. Just like the apostles, we are called to put Jesus first in our lives…to go out and share our faith by our words and actions.
