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.

OUR VISION

 

To be a Parish that is open and transparent, nurturing, united and inclusive.

  

To be a community that is welcoming, embracing and caring for families, youth and valuing cultural diversity.

 

To be a Parish that brings those who do not know Christ into relationship with him.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Exciting Upcoming Events!

SUMMER SCHOOL 2023: POPE FRANCIS, VATICAN 2 AND THE FUTURE

Every 25 years the church celebrates a Jubilee year. It is a sacred time of pilgrimage, prayer, repentance, and acts of mercy. The next Jubilee Year will be in 2025, and Pope Francis has invited us to spend some time over the next two years in preparation for the Jubilee. 2023 is dedicated to a renewed look at Vatican 2 and 2024 will focus on prayer. The Diocesan Summer School will explore the event of Vatican 2 and some of its core teachings. These teachings are the basis for the ongoing life and mission of the Church into the future.

The Second Reading – 1 Corinthians

 

The Second Reading during these weeks of Ordinary Time comes from the First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians.

 

The Acts of the Apostles wrote about a person who would become a major character in the second half of the book, Saul of Tarsus, also known by his Roman name, Paul. He appears to be a member of the Pharisees, a group that holds to a very rigid interpretation of Jewish Law.

 

After a profound spiritual experience of the risen Christ, Paul is converted to the Christian faith. His major insight is that God has made salvation available to everyone: Jews and Gentiles alike. He is also convinced that God’s offer of salvation is a free gift, that no one could do anything to actually earn it.

 

Paul took upon himself to spread the good news of God’s salvation in Jesus to the Gentiles. He founded new Christian communities, and stayed in touch with them through letters and visits. One of the places in which he founded a new Christian community was Corinth, where he arrived about 50 AD and stayed for about 18 months, departing about 52AD. He was able to keep in touch with the community, and this letter (1 Cor) is a response to troubling news of disunity in the community. A delegation from Corinth arrived to see him in Ephesus, seeking clarification of some of Paul’s teaching and instructions. This letter is his response.

 

The community is divided into different groups, with disagreements on matters of worship, interactions with the local community, and some in the Christian community appearing to claim superiority over other members. In response to these issues Paul gave good practical advice, and reminded them of what is truly important for Christian believers: the Resurrection is central to faith.

 

Human wisdom can’t always be relied on, the needs of others have to be considered, and love should be the primary focus in everything they do and say. The advice offered in this letter is good for Christians of any time and place.
