What is an Evergreen? Our parish has been built and supported by many people over time. A group that celebrates the older/ retired/ young at heart are the “Evergreens” . The “Evergreens” gather to enjoy some entertainment and good company and on the 24th March, live entertainment and free afternoon tea. The first gathering for 2015 is in the Parish Centre at 1pm, as we said, on the 24th March. There will be a quiz, door prize, live music and singalong and afternoon tea. Contact Parish Office for catering purposes. We don’t want to over-order the iced vovos. (for Victorians, they are a biscuit, see below)

This year our parish theme is Year of Growth. On the weekend of 15 & 16 February and 22 & 23 February, we will have our Parish Expo. In the foyer of St Anne’s church will be A3 pages with descriptions of the various ministries. Currently the number of parishioners in ministries is really good, but we are looking for new people to help out as well. It will mean our parish will continue to grow and for everyone to feel part of a vibrant and great community. We encourage you all to become part of at least one ministry and try it for just one year. If you like it, continue for another year but if you prefer to explore something else, you can! You can sign up on the A3 pages in the foyer, or be part of the Sign up weekend on 22 & 23 February and 1 & 2 March– Just before Lent! We will ask people at Mass to sign up for a ministry, then will contact them to advise of training for their chosen ministry. It is an opportunity to share our talents with others and receive the talents of others.
The Mary MacKillop Heritage Centre at 362 Albert St, East Melbourne will be open to the public on Saturday 8 February from 10am – 4pm, to enable visitors to take a tour of the Mary MacKillop Museum, pray in the Chapel where Mary prayed, visit the gift shop and enjoy light refreshments in the tranquil surroundings. A guided Mary MacKillop Walking tour will also be available at 11am.
Any Evergreens interested in attending please contact Frances Arians on 9744 1999
