The Season of Joy continues…
Friday 27 June – 7.00pm – in the church : KEEPING OUR KIDS SAFER (open to all) with Tim Stevens (National parenting speaker and ex-copper)
Fr Lawrence and Fr Jim would especially like to encourage parents and grandparents to make every effort possible to attend this event.
Saturday 28 June – 9.30am – in the church hall : BLOKES BREAKFAST (for blokes only) with Tim Stevens on faith making a difference in today’s world.
Again, Fr Lawrence and Fr Jim want to encourage the men of the parish to take part.
Tim Stevens brings a different testimony with elements that many will identify with. His account speaks of a workaholic who lost focus on what is important. Faced with the consequences, he bears witness to the power of God to change lives and to seriously protect our children in a challenging world. Tim was a senior detective leading murder and rape investigations, now he works for the faith charity CaFE helping to spread the Good News through mission, conference speaking, retreat giving and film production.
