What is Alpha?  Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Who is it for?  YOU! And for anyone who’s curious to explore the big questions of life, faith and meaning. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and exploration of faith in an open, friendly, informal environment.

 How does it work? Over 11 weeks, people experience good food, a short talk, discussion and  the opportunity to share their thoughts. No pressure, no follow up.

 How much does it cost? There is no charge.

Lenten Program – “Trust”

Default Icon

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday 6th March.

Make this Lent different and commit to putting aside 11/2 hours a week to prepare your mind and heart for the season which is the reason for our faith and the reason why we come each week to Mass.

 

Please see the board in the foyer for information on the small Lenten Reflection groups running once a week from the week of Ash Wednesday for 6 sessions and register your interest.

 

We are also looking for people who would like to offer their homes as a gathering place for small groups to share in this wonderful program and to journey through the 40 days of Lent together. Invite family or friends to join you  Please contact Billie at the parish office if you can host a group in this way – 9276 8500.

 

This booklet with short personal daily reflections is also suitable for those who cannot attend a group.  Cost $10—from Piety Stall or parish office.

Dear Parishioners,

恭喜发财     Chúc Mừng Năm Mới

Happy Lunar New Year!  Many of our parishioners gather at this time with their families to celebrate New Year.  For our Vietnamese and Chinese friends especially, it is a time when families gather to renew their bonds of mutual love and respect and to wish each other Health, Happiness and Prosperity for this year and always.

 

In today’s Gospel Jesus calls fishermen to come to him, to follow him and learn from him.  Peter recognizes his own unworthiness to be with Jesus.  It is because of this and not in spite of it that Jesus calls him.  Only when we know our unworthiness can we come to know God.  Jesus then sends Peter to continue his mission by fishing for people not fish. Read more…

Today’s Gospel and Australia Day

In the readings of the Gospel sometimes there are a few verses skipped, or sometimes even a passage. However, in today’s Gospel we go from the Prologue to Luke’s Gospel (Lk:1.1-4) and the Acts of the Apostles (they are Part A and Part B of one work) to Lk:4 12-21. This is a full four chapters later. The Prologue tells us why Luke wrote: to confirm Gentile believers in their faith by giving them a strong sense of identity. In Chapter 4 Jesus begins his public ministry in the synagogue of his home town. He tells us why he has come: to set people free, as in the sabbatical year when all debts were to be cancelled (Cf. Deut:15). God’s forgiveness releases us from the debt due to our sin.
