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

FAITH EDUCATION CORNER

The Sun Does Shine

 

From a distance, massive storm clouds are amazing. The way they are formed and the way they gather strength and eventually creeping through the skies are simply breath-taking but it also strikes terror. Storms have a way of throwing our life into utter chaos, and destruction. It can uproot us from our       stability and the once familiar ground we were standing on is no longer in sight. The ferocious wind that storms generate, the intense downpour of rain that inundates the landscape can be overwhelming. It changes and reshapes everything it touches. Suddenly, every familiarity of our known world is completely altered, torn apart and destroyed with only pieces left to remind us of what was once. We mourn and grieve over the incalculable loss we had sustain. The aftermath of every storm that descends on us is the most difficult moment as we become overwrought with what to do with the brokenness around us and within us, where to begin, how to rebuild what was destroyed and coming to terms with sense of loss. Great storms can be life-changing.

 

Humanity as a whole has done many stupid things that have caused so much misery and suffering to  other members of its species. It has it own set of follies and foibles. But one of the most redeeming   qualities of humanity is its ability to surmount every obstacle that is thrown in its path and is able      transcend the tragedies, the sorrows and sufferings with inspiring dignity and grace. ”it is really wonderful how much resilience there is in human nature. Let any obstructing cause, no matter what, be removed in any way, even by death, and we fly back to first principles of hope and enjoyment.” (Bram Stoker)      

 Individually, we have seen people who suffered great tragedies and yet was able to overcome with dignity their personal storms and stood erect to face the challenges ahead of them. They received good    beatings from life, their lives were turned upside down by the storms of life and yet managed to emerge alive though broken. And yet in the brokenness they suffer, they pick up the pieces and made something beautiful out of those  broken pieces.

 

When storms descend upon us with all its ferocity be like bamboo or willow tree that sways with the wind. Follow the rhythm of the wind’s wildness. Never attempt to resist the pressure because it is pointless   unless you want to be toppled down like the mighty oak tree. Bear the brunt of your suffering. Cry if you must, weep to your heart’s content but submit to the process. Life is never fair. It is never governed by laws of fairness otherwise good people will never suffer. When life is unfair, learn to adjust your sail. When we are drenched, we might as well play in the rain instead of wallowing in self-pity and self-recrimination.

These habits are self-destructive.
