SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

My Jesus,

I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.

Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace you as if You were already there.

And unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

.

From Bishop Gerard Holohan

Parish Council
Our Mission

 

Our Mission is to continue growing as a community where people can meet Jesus Christ and grow in his life and mission in the Catholic Faith.

 

The spirituality our parish mission is expressed best in the parish prayer of    St Therese of Avila.

Christ has no body on earth but yours;

 no hands but yours;

 no feet but yours.

 Yours are the eyes through which he is to look out-

 Christ's compassion to the world.

 Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good.

Yours are the hands with which he is to bless others now.

FAITH EDUCATION

REFLECTION FOR THIS WEEK

Our lives during coronavirus time
Adapted from an article by Fr Andy Hamilton SJ         8 Apr 2020 
https://www.pray.com.au/our-lives-after-coronovirus/   This site has the readings for each day, and a short reflection. 

For many people, these weeks of living with the restriction of the coronavirus situation has been hard to manage.  There has been no compass to guide us in the world we have entered.
As Catholics we want to model our lives after Jesus, and to shape our world with Jesus’ values. Our tradition and our experience can offer us some ways of finding a way through it.   

 

FINDING LIFE
The Christian tradition and its story is built around finding life in the midst of difficulty and death. It encourages us to recognise the disorientation, loss and grief that the coronavirus crisis may bring to people, and to care for one another as we bear it. It also encourages us to simply stand with Mary by the suffering of many in our society.
Our tradition and experience lead us to reflect on what matters in all the details of our changed lives – in the way we work, spend our time, shape our life at home, and handle the restrictions placed on us.
As followers of Jesus, the question of what matters is the quality of our relationships: the deep ones to family and friends, to our colleagues at work, to all the people involved in minimising the harm of the coronavirus epidemic, and to the millions of Australians whose lives and livelihood are at stake. Persons are at the heart of all these issues.


GOOD RELATIONSHIPS
Developing good personal, working and institutional relationships is key to our Christian way of working and our communal life. We reflect on these relationships in our daily life, and reflect on how a more just Australia might emerge from the pandemic.
In the Gospels Jesus constantly engages people in conversation when he teaches. We help each other to work happily and effectively through respectful and engaged conversation.  We help our Church meet new situations and needs through a range of honest and respectful conversations.

STRENGTHEN CONVERSATIONS
To understand and adapt to the present situation, we need to find ways of strengthening our reflection and conversation at all levels. Our conversations have had to be mostly at a distance, and distance often makes difficulties. So perhaps the qualities most helpful to our conversations will be the gentle ones of empathy, kindness and good humour. 

These are central to the Gospel.
 

who needs a prayer; pray for God's protection and love. Ask for light, hope, courage and direction. Remember Mary, the mother of Jesus during the month of May. Remember a loved one who has died. Pray for healing, forgiveness and peace in your life.

Doing something small, and doing it well, gets us started. And doing this is good, safe and valuable. We all need this during these difficult times.
