Artists who have been in lock down or self-isolation during Covid-19 have been using this time and some creative uses of technology to develop some remarkable recordings; alone but together and in beautiful harmony.
During this time of crisis these videos and recordings have been a source of encouragement and hope. In those video Salt + Light Media invited singers and musicians to collaborate for a production off the wellknown and well-loved hymn ‘Be Not Afraid’ by Bob Dufford, SJ (Oregon Catholic Press, © 1975). The video includes such Catholic musicians as: Dan Schutte, John Michael Talbot, Steve Angrisano, Jesse Manibusan, Ken Canedo, Gretchen Harris, and many others including Australian Fr. Rob Galea.

We recognise that many of you have been deeply concerned by not being able to attend Mass and would like to return as soon as possible. We invite you to contact the Parish office on 5441 1034 or email stjoenam@ozemail.com.au to regis
ter your attendance at any of the weekday masses. Where possible your name will be registered on the sign in sheet of your choice.

Pope Francis urges us to pray the Rosary during May. He has written two prayers the first of which is here. You can see the letter and prayers on the link at the bottom.

First Prayer
O Mary,
You shine continuously on our journey
as a sign of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who, at the foot of the cross,
were united with Jesus’ suffering,
and persevered in your faith.
“Protectress of the Roman people”,
you know our needs,
and we know that you will provide,
so that, as at Cana in Galilee,
joy and celebration may return
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the will of the Father
and to do what Jesus tells us.
For he took upon himself our suffering,
and burdened himself with our sorrows
to bring us, through the cross,
to the joy of the Resurrection.
Amen.
 
We fly to your protection,
O Holy Mother of God;
Do not despise our petitions
in our necessities,
but deliver us always
from every danger,
O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.


Letter and Prayer from Pope Francis for May
