Dalyellup Community Centre
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.
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.
Pastoral Letter from The Most Reverence Timothy Costelloe, SDB DD

Faith Education Corner
A major theme running through the whole of the Old and New Testaments is that of ‘justice’. God is wholly just and we are called to lives of justice also.
What do we mean by justice?
The gospel today gives us plenty to think about. And the need to think differently is presented in Isaiah in the first reading:
“My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.”
Today’s Gospel can help us see God’s ways of thinking.
God does not look at how much we do. God looks at our needs.
God loves Mary his Mother, someone like St Teresa of Calcutta and me, with exactly the same love. Is that just? Is that what I deserve? Should I complain, or just bow down in humble thankfulness? God loves us where we are now.
A really sinful person could come face to face with the love of God and, after a lifetime of wrongdoing, say a big “Yes!” to Jesus. No matter how many times I fail, or do wrong, or how late in life I come to find Jesus, I am assured of the same welcome that the saints get.
This is the “justice” of the shepherd who leaves the “good” sheep to look for the one that wandered off; the “justice” of the father who organises a huge feast for the son who wasted his father’s money, while the dutiful son stayed at home.
God’s way can be our way
So, if this is God’s way of proceeding, it is clearly meant to be our way also. Last Sunday’s Gospel spoke about the importance of forgiving others and being reconciled with them. We need also to learn how to accept people as they are.
