Our Parish Youth Group (Sunbury Engage) will be kicking off next Monday.
PARISH MULTICULTURAL DAY This will be held on Sunday 1 October at 11am in the Parish Centre. Tickets cost $10 and food will be provided. To take part in this great celebration of diverse cultures within our parish contact Garnet Jacob or the Parish Office. All proceeds will support the Parish Youth Group.
A number of young people from the northern region of the Archdiocese have decided to work together to take a combined group to the Festival as a ‘Northern Region Collective’, and would like to welcome other young people from parishes in the region. This provides an opportunity for young people from Our Lady of Mt Carmel’s to meet other young people, make new friends and enjoy the Festival in a supported group environment.
There are two ways of registering:
· Participants aged over 18 can simply register themselves individually. The Northern Region Collective organisers will then contact them with information about transportation and accommodation. Click here ‘ACYF – Northern Region Collective Information – Individual Registration Information‘ for more information.
· Participants aged under 18 will need to be accompanied by a leader from your parish and registered as a parish group. This leader will work with the Northern Region Collective Organisers on the logistical planning for their group. Click here ‘ACYF – Northern Region Collective Information’ for more information. Registration and consent forms are also available to assist your leader.

So instead of just putting your donation towards the care of the poorest of the poor children in Indonesia (and we cannot say enough how much we appreciate your generosity), come along and help show our Sunbury Parish Community in action in a great cause and do something for yourself at the same time (have fun, that is).
