Happy New Year to you all. News from Fr Doug

Dear Parishioners,
There are a couple of events happening in the Parish in January that you might be interested in.

1.  Garage Sale at St Anne’s Saturday 22 January
We are appealing for donations to help the super Typhoon Odette victims to rebuild their badly damaged homes. The funds raised will go to families in the island of Bohol in the Central Visayas’s region of the Philippines. Bohol was one of the hardest hit islands in the archipelago and its inhabitants desperately need help. The typhoon hit just before Christmas Eve 2021 and to date there is no electricity and drinking water is rationed.
Any donations will be gratefully received and can be made two ways. Donations through a  Givealittle page https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/typhoon-odette-victims-fundraising  or by attending a Garage Sale at St. Anne’s Hall, 22 Emmett Street, Newtown from 8.30am to 2pm on Saturday 22 January 2022.

2.  Joe Green is moving on
There will be a Presentation for Joe at the 9am Mass on 30 January at St Anne’s.

3. Newsletters
The first Newsletter of the year will be on 30 January. The Office will reopen next week on Tuesday 25 January.

Every blessing.
Fr Doug
