life are the hallmarks of Our Lady of the Pines parishioners

Feast of St Vincent de Paul
27th September 2020
This weekend, to coincide with the Feast Day of St Vincent de Paul, we are holding a campaign to raise much needed funds for our Vinnies’ Conference*.    Vinnies is a lifeline for many people facing hardships and is presently being called upon more than ever due to the effects of the pandemic.  If you are in a position to donate, please click on the following link:
(In the comments section of the donation page, could you kindly type “Please Forward to Donvale Conference 444”.  Thank you.)
 
*There are over 300 local Vinnies volunteer groups around Victoria, known as Conferences, which provide face-to-face support and a ‘hand up’ to vulnerable members of their communities.  Our Lady of the Pines has one such Conference.  Please click here for more information.
 
 
“Yours must be a work of love, of kindness,
you must give your time,
 your talents, yourselves”.

Annual Memorial Mass
Monday 2nd November
As we may not be able to gather as a community to celebrate All Souls’ Day this year, a recorded mass is being planned. You are invited to send us a photo of your loved ones who have passed away which will be included in the recorded
video Mass. All photos are to be emailed to donvale@cam.org.au by Fri 23rd Oct.
 
Parish Zoom Account
During this lockdown period it has been very hard to connect and keep in touch with our fellow parishioners. In view of this, the decision was made to open a Parish Zoom Account, in order to assist Ministry coordinators to get in touch with their fellow Ministry members to discuss parish business or to allow parishioners to arrange a virtual get together.  If any Ministry coordinator or parishioner would like to arrange for a parish meeting or social gathering, you are invited to use our account.  Please email the Parish Office at donvale@cam.org.au with details of your event/get together and we will arrange this for you and advise you of the process.
