Mass with Anointing and Morning Tea at St Joseph’s Malvern

On Tuesday 16th October St Joseph’s Malvern, VIC celebrated Mass where the Anointing the Sick was administered as well. The mass where Anointing is included usually take place here in the parish on the third Tuesday of every month. Year 6 students from St Joseph’s Primary School also attend this mass. Rather than sit as a class the students sit either individually or in groups with the members of our parish community. They also assist me at the altar during mass. It is wonderful to see the connections made between these students and our parishioners. They certainly look forward to having the children attend.

After mass we go to the Kildara Centre next door for morning tea. On average approximately 25-30 parishioners come over for morning tea. Birthdays are always acknowledged at these gatherings. For a good number this represents a good opportunity to be able to leave the house and socialize. Transport is provided both before mass and after the mass and morning tea for those with mobility issues.
It is my pleasure to attach photos of our last gathering which enjoy the consent of all who are present in them.
