Karen Leighton - St Jude's Early Learning Centre
For many years the Christmas Eve vigil Mass at St John Vianney’s has been a family-centred celebration of the birth of Jesus. A highlight is the re-enactment of the Nativity story, presented by the school children. Extended families and visitors have come to the Mass for its significance but also because the children are involved in this wonderful part of the life of the Church.
Father Michael invites parents and grandparents who would like to be part of this tradition to help to organise and rehearse the children for this year’s Mass. There’s a guide for how the re-enactment has been organised in past years, and room for any new ideas you may have after discussion with the parish office and Father Michael.
Without your support for your children this Mass just won’t happen. If you’d like to become involved, please contact the school or the parish office 8331 7611

The Parish Christmas Party, Friday 6 December 2019 commencing at 6pm in the grounds of St John Vianney School, Waramanga. ALL PARISHIONERS are invited to come along to what has proved to be a wonderful evening in past years. It is meant for the whole parish. This Christmas Party is also a special occasion for Fr Michael to thank, both in person and publicly, all parishioners for their generous involvement, support and work in the many areas of parish family life. If you would like to attend and haven't RSVP'd bring along a salad or dessert to share. There is always plenty to share. As our parish footprint has expanded and as a sign of welcome and unity we would really like for all to come. Come along for an evening with friends and fellow parishioners.
