2. Special Character Term 3 Week 10

                                      Welcome/Kiaora/Malo e Lelei

Special Dates this week

23rd St Pius of Pietrelcina
27th St Vincent de Paul
YV Logo
Since the early 1900’s, young people have been involved with the work of the
St Vincent de Paul Society in New Zealand. Many of our schools in the Dunedin Diocese
have Young Vinnies groups.
The Society was founded by seven people, most of whom were teenagers. The object of having a youth arm of the Society that caters for people from age about 11 to 30ish is to help them to realise that there are people in society in need, and to encourage them to help those people. They are also encouraged to realise that the reason Vincentians help people is not just because they feel good doing this work, but because of the Gospel message to love your neighbour as yourself.

Lautado Si
We can encourage our children and grandchildren to appreciate creation by planting seeds or seedlings, watching them grow, and even transfer to their plates. Have you considered growing some vegetables of your own - nutritious fresh-from-the-garden greens for better health.  A small garden can easily produce lettuce, cabbage, silver-beet, spinach, spring onions, celery and those health-giving herbs … and … it’s not too late to plant a couple of ‘new potatoes’ for Christmas dinner. The garden is a constant reminded of our God through Mother Earth’s/Papatuanuku’s loving provision for us.

Together we make the difference by being the change we wish to see!
Spiritual Reading
“Private prayer is like straw scattered here and there: If you set it on fire it makes a lot of little flames. But gather these straws into a bundle and light them, and you get a mighty fire, rising like a column into the sky; public prayer is like that.”
--Saint John Vianney

Thank you
God Bless
