Youth Bunnings BBQ

Last weekend, twenty of our older teens and young adults volunteered their time at a Caloundra Bunnings BBQ, raising money to attend the annual Ignite Conference in the September school holidays. Ignite Conference is a four day mountain-top experience down at Rothwell where young people sing, dance, listen and learn about their Catholic faith. These twenty young members of our parish did a wonderful job in raising $1237 which will go toward reducing the $280 individual registration cost of the four-day conference.

If you would like to support our parish teens and young adults with a financial contribution, please label an envelope with “Ignite Conference” and drop it in the collection basket. Otherwise you can donate through the parish website Giving Page.

Thank you in advance on their behalf!

 

Taize Night

Last Tuesday evening, parishioners at OLR, Caloundra and Sacred Heart Maleny, gathered for an evening of Taize chant.

Taizé is an ecumenical community in France whose influence has spread throughout the world, especially through its meditative style of music.

The singing of distinctive and much-repeated prayer chants during candlelit prayer services is one of its trademarks. Taizé music highlights simple phrases, usually lines from the Psalms or other pieces of scripture, repeated or sung in canon. The repetition is designed to help meditation and prayer. Thank you to Erica Marshal and Fran Tickle and others who gave their time to organise a wonderful evening.
