Tomorrow is Market Day @ UQ St Lucia and, once again, we have a stall. We're number 125 in the Great Court...not sure where we are in the Great Court but look for the big blue Newman Society poster, blue and white balloons and happy faces. You can't miss us!
Come along and support our club. Come on, be awesome!...
And if that's not enough incentive there's a heap of free food and goodies to be had!
Market day runs from 10am-3pm.

Hope you all had a great summer break and spent at least some time at the beach :-)

God has created me to do him some definite service; he has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another. I have my mission — I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I have a part in a great work; I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
— Bl John Henry Cardinal Newman

“Dear Lord, help me to spread thy fragrance everywhere I go.
Flood my soul with Thy spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine.
Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me but only Thee O Lord!
Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as Thou shinest; so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light O Lord will be all from Thee; none of it will be mine;
It will be Thou, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise Thee in the way Thou dost love best, by shining on those around me.
Let me preach Thee without preaching, not by words but by my example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to Thee.”
—Bl John Henry Cardinal Newman
