We the people of St. Patrick's Beenleigh, are a welcoming Eucharistic spirit-filled community, who are on the journey searching to be church in the world. We are committed to each other and to creating a parish that is both life-giving and challenging, respecting and reflecting our multi-cultural nature. Through our baptism we respond to the call to take the message of Jesus to all people.

Weekly Reflection

The message of the season of Advent is that God is coming to us. God is coming into our lives; God is making the crooked ways straight and the rough places smooth. If we believe that God is coming, we must not let expectations blind us to God’s arrival. Majority of the people are in a financial situation that is not as good as last year. We might already have made up our mind that this Christmas is not going to be as meaningful or as joyful as previous Christmases have been. But we believe that God is coming and we must not let our expectation of a lesser Christmas distract us from the new thing that God might choose to do. There are some people in our parish who have lost someone they loved in death. As the customs of the holiday unfold, they feel a sense of emptiness and loss because the people they care for are not with them. Now grief is real and it does affect us. But we must not let the expectation of what we are going to experience in the upcoming weeks hold us back. We must not presume that we will have nothing to celebrate. We must not let our darkness cover God’s light. God is coming, and our God is a God of hope. God can raise our spirits even in those times when death touches our life. All of us have stresses and tensions in our families. Problems can be caused by divergent personalities or resentment. As we look forward to the times when our families will be together over the holidays, we might carry the expectation that it’s going to be painful or a waste of time. But our God is coming, and our God is a God of healing. God can raise up moments of love and care even in families that are undergoing stress. Our God is coming. Isaiah in today’s first reading says that when God comes God will bring glad tidings for the poor, healing for the broken hearted, liberty for captives. Let us then believe that God is coming, and let us not let our expectations or worries distract us from God’s arrival. Let us let go of our worst fears and open ourselves to the new thing that God can and will do in our lives. God is coming. Open your hearts in welcome.

Children’s Liturgy

Children’s Liturgy As a group we gather in the MacKillop Room, listen to the gospel, sing the Alleluia and discuss what it all means for us as followers of Jesus in 2015. We usually respond to the word in a number of ways- using drama, mediation, song, drawing and creating in a meaningful way. We conclude with Prayers of the Faithful, often sharing our own prayers from the heart with each other. We often receive more spiritual wisdom from the children than that from a lot of adults!!
