Members of the Mount Barker/ Strathalbyn Knights of the Southern Cross and Parish Pastoral Council inserted memorabilia into the capsules after Mass on May 5. The capsules were placed in the pavement adjacent the church's foundation stone by members of the Knights of the Southern Cross under the supervision and work of their chairman Lawrie Caruana. The items included photographs and videos of the church's recent centenary celebrations held during 2012, newspapers including, a weekly bulletin from the church, a homily from Father Richard Morris, a St Francis de Sales School information booklet, menus from the church's centenary dinner, history about past priests, letters from school children at St Francis de Sales College to be read by themselves and others in 25 years' time and other memorabilia collected by the church's centenary committee. The time capsule was sealed and laid to rest until 2037 after a blessing by Father Morris. Pictured right are Fr Morris with local children and Neil McGoran and John Barton placing the items in the time capsule. Timeless memories New website The Truth Justice and Healing Council has launched a new website providing information on the way the Catholic Church is approaching its engagement with the Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse. Mr Francis Sullivan, CEO of the Council, said the site would be a valuable resource for both the Catholic and broader community with information regularly updated. The website address is www.tjhcouncil.org.au PEACE RUN: Christian Brothers College students participated in the Adelaide leg of the Sri Chimnoy Peace Run last month. The run began in Canberra and will travel around Australia, covering 15000km as it promotes the message that world peace begins inside the heart of each human being. It is part of a global effort involving events in over 100 nations in 2013 with runners carrying a peace torch and visiting schools and communities. Pictured above are members of the CBC Junior Campus who welcomed the international runners and jogged to Hindmarsh Square. HOLE IN ONE: Fr Allan Winter scored a hole in one at the recent Port Pirie Clergy Golf Day. Catholic Church Insurances State manager John Lemm presented him with a trophy and $100. Fr Winter said he had been playing golf since he was 16 and to get his first hole-in-one in 50 years was "a dream come true". He said he dropped to his knees and yelled "thank you God, thank you God" so loudly he could be heard from three holes away. Fr Winter is the first priest in 70 years of clergy golf days (both Adelaide and Port Pirie dioceses) to hit a hole-in-one at a clergy championship. Priests have done so at other times but "that's not the same as doing it in front of your fellow priests," he said.
