Together we move forward through Pentecost
Following Pentecost on Sunday 4th June Fr Russell continues to lead us to a fuller understanding of the significance of Pentecoss and of the coming celebrations in the Christian year. Fr Russell's message to us in the Pew Bulletin on 2nd July was -
"...Our growing in the love of God flows on to effect those around us, our families, our friends and the faith community. A person who grows in the love of God is auspicious to everyone. The fruits of the Spirit beginning with humility manifests in the heart of those who love God and those fruits empower mission... I pray our community can grow in the Lord's love and service and that all members here may live and grow in love."
A very significant celebration occurred on Monday 10th July when a special Thanksgiving Service was held to celebrate the
Christ Church Community Meals Program
and to acknowledge the tireless efforts of volunteers, contributors and supporters of the Program. The service was also an opportunity to welcome Bp Brad Billings and Ms Nicola Templeton from the Melbourne Anglican Foundation, and to farewell Fr Kevin Dillon who has now finished at St Mary's Basilica in Geelong, and who has long been a supporter of the CCCMP. Over 90 people attended the service and shared in the special presentation to Fr Kevin.
