PASTORAL VISIT TO BARCALDINE
Last weekend Malia Mar and myself had a wonderful pastoral visit to the Parish of Barcaldine. We were met with warm hospitality and all wanted to send their greetings back to Corinda Graceville Parish. We landed in Blackall on Friday morning and were driven to Barcaldine where we met with Fr Marcel Kajur and parishioners, including Gloria McKean who has been our local contact helping us out at Barcaldine this year. Fr Marcel will soon be leaving Barcaldine Parish, having been transferred to Rockhampton.

We cheered on at the local Athletics Carnival as St Joseph’s School won the aggregate award over the local State Schools, and met Claire Baillie the School Principal. We met with Sr Rita and Sr Mary, the Parish Pastoral Council, and
the Year of Mercy Team. It was wonderful to hear stories of life in Barcaldine. Malia and I were energised by the experience. There may be drought in Barcaldine but there is certainly a lot if life and energy!

Rain came down Saturday night which was the greatest blessing! Mass was celebrated Saturday evening at Sacred Heart Barcaldine (see photo below). This was followed by a BBQ to farewell Fr Marcel, and for Malia and I to have the chance to meet and chat with more of the locals.

On Sunday morning we drove the 150 kilometres to celebrate Mass at Alpha. We were thrilled to see water across the landscape, on our trek back to Longreach on Sunday, to catch our flight home to Brisbane.

HOT SOUP
Will be served after the 6pm Mass next Saturday night 2nd July at St Joseph's. All welcome to stay for some warm hospitality!
