Synod of Bishops

 On Sunday, October 17, dioceses around the world will launch local preparations for the Synod of Bishops, which has the theme: “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission”. The Catholic Church in Australia will invite the People of God to make submissions via an online portal that will open on October 17. Those submissions will help the Bishops develop a national report to support the global process leading to an international gathering in 2023. Find out more at: http://www.catholic.org.au/synodalchurch

As we embrace this Synodal Process, this prayer invites the Holy Spirit to be at work in us so that we may be a community and a people of grace.

Prayer for the Synod

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,

as we gather together in Your name.

With You alone to guide us,

make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.

We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path

nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity

so that we may journey together to eternal life

and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.

All this we ask of You,

who are at work in every place and time,

in the communion of the Father and the Son,

forever and ever.  Amen.

Dear brothers and sisters,

If you are ever discouraged by your own failures in Christian living take heart. We are no worse than the disciples of Jesus who were with him on the road to Jerusalem.  Read more…

Parish Bulletin 10 October 2021 – Twenty-eight Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

Default Icon

Dear brothers and sisters,

All three readings this week come together around a radical view of Christian life. The First Reading, from Wisdom 7:7-11, is clearly meant to set off the Gospel which tells of a rich man who found Jesus’ call to discipleship too difficult to accept.  Read more…
