Church Cleaning Coordinator

Anna Sia who has diligently served as Coordinator of the Church Cleaning Ministry, is stepping down.

Anna has been instrumental in her pastoral role coordinating rosters, making sure that cleaning materials are available and communicating to the Cleaning Ministry, maintaining a strong connection with this ministry and the Parish.

Anna is making herself available to train her replacement for a smooth change over.  We value and appreciate all that Anna has done in this ministry and look forward to welcoming the new coordinator in her stead.  We thank all those on the Church Cleaning Roster for their invaluable service in reassuring us of gathering for worship in a clean environment.

Once again we thank Anna and wish her God’s blessing.  She will truly be missed .

We are seeking a volunteer who will be able to step into the role of Coordinator for this invaluable ministry. It will involve liaising with families, Fr Jude, the Catechists and the Parish Office to offer the children from our Parish who do not attend our Catholic schools the opportunity to have classes to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. The Coordinator does not necessarily teach the formation classes, but will instead be involved in coordinating the Catechists (who teach the program) and the families who attend it.

If you would like more information, please contact the Parish Office on 9401 6367.
