19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Bulletin 2018-08-12


A life changing father and son weekend will be held from Friday 2 November – Sunday 4 November 2018 at Cataract Scout Camp, Appin. Spots are limited to just 15 fathers with their son aged between 12-16. One of the most important influences in the lives of men is the relationship they had with their father, or significant father figure. The encouragement and affirmation that this relationship could and should provide is a key ingredient for how young men view themselves and embrace their gifts as they take their place in the world. This is a unique opportunity for dads and their sons to embark on a quest of discovery with Robert Falzon and the team from menALIVE.

You don’t get this time back so make this opportunity a priority! Contact Jude Hennessy on Ph: 4222 2407 or email jude.hennessy@dow.org.au to register or ask any questions.
