ST MARY’S NEW GARDEN

We are creating St Mary’s “Mary Garden” in the medieval gothic style appropriate to our beautiful blue stone church. Most funds for this garden have been donated by some parishioners. Donations towards this project are, of course, welcome as we set it coming together over the coming weeks.

ST MARY’S – RELIEF PROGRAM

Through the Melbourne Anglican Benevolent we donate meat to St Mark’s Fitzroy to feed the homeless. As this is the most expensive part of a meal this is greatly appreciated by St Mark’s. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to our fund please contact the office for a form or go to this LINK.

NEW VOTIVE CANDLE HOLDERS

Two votive candle holders are being purchased for our church. They are of Greek orthodox origin and need a lot of care and cleaning. If you would like to help fund the purchase and cleaning of these stunning candle holders please talk to Fr Jan.

Two Sundays of each month are Sharing Sundays for Anglicare. Please bring toiletries or non-perishable goods such as two minute noodles, canned fish, meat or soup, cereals or tetra packs of milk, leave them in the basket at the back of the church. As we approach the Christmas Season donations of shortbread, Christmas Cake or pudding in addition to the normal staples would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
