I: Achievements and Advance Notice
This has been the completion of our 20th Year!
We have celebrated with our usual activities of Discussion Group, Icon School, Book Club and support by members of the Blessed Adrian Fortescue chapter of Dominican Tertiaries.
Special events included a visit, talk and book launch by Joanna Bogle, and our twentieth anniversary Mass (celebrated by Archbishop Hart), dinner and address by Julian McMahon.
We have promoted and read books! We have a new postcard to promote the library (enclosed).
We have also used electronic communications. We have blogged! We have Tweeted!
Next year we will be 21!
We are planning a series of talks and events, all aimed at nourishing and deepening Catholic Faith and Culture. In this way we aim to join and share the Joy of Evangelizing, as Pope Francis has exhorted. We will begin early in the New Year with the celebration of the YouCat, a publication based on the Catechism, but prepared, illustrated and promoted for youth especially by Cardinal Schonborn.
Details of this and future events will follow.
Please participate! Use and promote the library to your friends, and in your parish!
II: Invitation to be a Library Volunteer
The Caroline Chisholm Library collection rests entirely on the dedicated work and support of our volunteer staff. Volunteers help according to time and ability, staffing the loans desk, mending books, assisting in cataloguing and recording of books and in their sorting and preparation.
Our excellent volunteers however are much in need of additional staff, as this some are caring for family members, or pursuing their vocations elsewhere.
If you are interested to find out more about being a volunteer, contact Anthony Krohn or any of the committee for a brief overview of the Library operations. We can then arrange for you to meet some of our experienced volunteers and for training.
Please phone the library on (03) 9670 1815, or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
