Year of Consecrated Life
On Sunday February 7, 2016 there will be a celebration of the end of the ‘ Year of Consecrated Life’.
Here in the Brunswick Valley we have seen the tireless work of the Sisters of St Joseph in our school, our Parish and the wider community.
Today we have Sr Maureen in our midst and she show us a wonderful example of Consecrated Life for the last 40 years.
Come, pray, reflect ans celebrate a special Mass with us on this day. Sister will renew her Religious Vows and share some of her thoughts on the ‘Year of Consecrated Life’.
Join us afterwards for morning tea at the Presbytery which will be open to all.

Sonrise 2000 National Prayer Wave
The Combined Christian Churches of the Brunswick Valley back in 2000 took part in the Australia-wide Prayer Wave. The Prayer Wave service commenced at dawn on the beach at Brunswick Heads on New Years Day 2000. As the sun rose the prayer wave and prayer services moved from Brunswick Heads, New South Wales to Perth, Western Australia based on the scripture passage…
2 Chronicles 7: 14 – 16. 14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. 16 I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
The North Coast Christian Media Council under the leadership of Terry Allen (Coffs Harbour) promoted the event with the theme song written and sung by Evangelist Singer Darin Browne from the Bill Newman International Ministry.

Re-build Vanuatu Project
The container of supplies has reached the villages in the North of Efate, Vanuatu.
Please find photo of Paul & Nellie Simbolo family with some of the supplies.
I have added this photo to the new updated fundraising site www.rebuildvanuatu.good4global.com/
Many thanks to Viv Pike & Mary Ashton and the St John’s Parish Community for making this possible…
The Simbolo Family live at Epule Tops above the main village of Epule. Please access link www.brunswickvalley.com.au/helpvanuatu/simbolofamily.htm to see more information and where the village is located. As they are further inland from the coast and river they will need more help to re establish and to supply running water to their village.
I will keep you updated with more photos as they come through of what is happening with the rebuild projects.
