Let’s Pray

Lord Jesus Christ, Divine Saviour, You build your holy Church upon the foundation of love expressed by Simon Peter and you taught us how to love others as you have loved us. Be with us as we build our local Church in the Diocese of Port Pirie. May your presence strengthen our will to serve you and support one another. Come and stay with us in our homes. Let your presence in our families help us to refresh our “domestic church” with your gift of love. Open our ears to hear the voice of our neighbours crying out for your support.

Asking for your presence in our local communities, we ask your blessing upon our endeavours of supporting young people through the ministry of the National Evangelisation Team and our Diocesan Youth Ministry. May their efforts help young people courageously open their hearts to God’s gift of love, give them strength to face any challenges in their life, knowing that with God on their side they can achieve great things. For it is in you, O Lord, we place our hope and trust. AMEN


Mr Joe Abdilla has been conducting the Stewardship Renewal Programme for both Jamestown and Burra Parishes.

It has been good to update our Parish Census. If you have not filled out your Commitment Card, please do so at your earliest opportunity and thank you to those who have already done so. Family Information packs were posted last week, if you haven’t received yours, please check your mail box before next Sunday 17 July.

Please read the material and bring it along to Mass on 17 July.  To further explain, a prepared statement from Mr Abdilla outlining the programme and the parish financial situation, will be read at Mass also.

On Sunday the July 31, Mr Abdilla will again visit to offer an update and speak further on the process. The success of the Parish Stewardship Renewal 2022 is up so you so please give it your support. Thank you.
