FR CHRIS SKINNER MUSIC
Fr Chris Skinner is a priest of the Society of Mary in New Zealand. Fr Chris’ role in the Society of Mary is in the formation of seminarians (trainees for the Marist priesthood). As a Marist priest, Fr Chris’ music is influenced greatly by his faith, his love of Scripture, his sense of God in the beauty of creation and his Marist spirituality. Fr Chris composed Nano’s Song to commemorate the 225th anniversary of the death of Nano Nagle. The parish received permission to use this beautiful song for our celebrations honouring the 300th anniversary of Nano Nagle’s birth. Fr Chris is grateful to be able to continue to share his music and to now have all his music available online and accessible to a wider audience. Please visit his website https://www.chrisskinner.org.nz
PARISH DROUGHT APPEAL – BARCALDINE (OUR TWIN) NEEDS US
For many of the children at St Joseph’s School Barcaldine, drought is all they have known. It has been many years since the area achieved its average annual rainfall and conditions are dire. When properties destock, town businesses are also affected, and all our twinned parishioners are feeling the strain. How can we help our twinned parish?
