God of all blessings, we give You thanks: for the breath that sustains, 
for the food of this earth, for the love of family and friends, 
without which there would be no life. We commit our work in farming to You 
while watching what it has produced over the years. 
  Amen

25TH. ANNIVERSARY OF PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

Invitation to all Adorers, Families and Friends to join Bishop Tom Deenihan and Fr. Joe Gallagher PP, in celebrating thanksgiving Mass for 25 years of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, on Tuesday 17th at 7:30 p.m. in the Church of the Assumption.  Refreshments and chat afterwards. 

HARVEST MASS

On Sunday 22nd we will celebrate our Annual Harvest Mass at 11.30am.  This celebration has its roots in the Old Testament when God's people gave thanks for the fruits of the harvest.  This was a week-long celebration known as the Feast of Tabernacles.  We invite our farming community to share in this Mass of Thanksgiving, and we invite all parishioners to share in their celebration.  As usual, we expect a rich display of all the fruits of the earth, and we thank the members of the farming community who work so well to produce a beautiful display.
