MONSTER GARAGE SALE

Recently we have received two tents to be sold on the Monster Garage Sale, but I am not sure if all the bits are included. If anyone would like to check them out for me I would very much appreciate it. Secondly, we have had an electric organ – in reasonable condition, which has now been on several sales now for only $175.00, but has not sold. I am prepared to let it go for only $50.00 as we are very tight for storage space at present. If you know of someone who might be interested in this please have them call me on 9500 3111. I am happy for them to check it out before committing to buy it.Joe

USED POSTAGE STAMPS FOR MISSIONS AND RING PULLS FOR PROSTHETICS.

As you know our Parish has for many years been collecting used postage stamps for Missions. Fr Joe and Wendy gather the stamps that are placed in the container at the back of the Church and sort them to be distributed to either ABM, CMS or the Mission to Seafarers.

Each of these organisations package them for sale, and the funds raised are used to support various missionaries in the field or Mission projects. Before bringing the stamps to Church please cut around both the stamp and the postmark on the envelope, making sure that you do not damage the stamp itself.

the new initiative of cash for cans, we can get twice the value, if you are prepared to take a little time. Not only can we get 10cents per can, but the ring pulls, if removed from the cans, can also be donated to support the making of prosthetics for those who have lost a limb. With this we work in conjunction with a local Rotary Club to recycle the ring pulls. Simply place them into a bag and leave them at the back of the Church. Corks can no longer be recycled.

We thank you in advance for your ongoing support for all our recycling initiatives.
