WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: Peter & Alice Meerleveld (66yrs) Please call the Parish Office to have names placed on any of the lists above or to remove someone who is now well. Feast Day of the Week: 21 January St Agnes (- 304) As with so many of the early Roman martyrs, very little is now known about Agnes’ life. Partly this is because the details have been obscured by the light that shines from her martyrdom and the cult that it inspired, and partly because if you are martyred at the age of 12, your life has not really acquired that many details in any case. Agnes was filled with the love of God from an early age, vowed herself to celibacy, and when the opportunity of martyrdom arose, she did not hide away but stepped forward and took it. That is really all that is known: but it is enough. We who are used to compromising with the world at every turn, and would find excuses to avoid any inconveniences that our faith might cause us, let alone martyrdom (“yes, of course I would die for my faith in principle, but wouldn’t I be able to do more good in the long run if I stayed alive just now?”), should admire the simple wisdom of Agnes, realise that there are moments where compromise and moral ambiguity just will not do, and pray for the strength to live up to such moments when they happen. Baptism: We welcome into our Catholic community: Amari Kaliopasi. Baptism’s are on the 2nd and 4th Sunday’s of each month. Please phone the parish office for information regarding Baptism or you can download request form on our parish website. St Patrick’s Columbarium and Memorial Garden have been built to provide a permanent resting place for parishioners and their families who have chosen to be cremated. This area is situated within a gated area on the western side of St Patrick s Church. The niches are set in a walled area within a tranquil and peaceful Garden setting. Niches may be reserved at any time prior to an interment with many parishioners choosing to purchase several years ahead. To purchase or to reserve a niche, families are asked to contact the Parish Office. Cost of these niches are : $400 for a single niche, $800 for a double niche and $1,200 for a treble niche. Silver SAC: If you’re new to the parish, you may have wondered what the box is that says ‘please swap your silver sacs here’. It is usually next to the candle stand. Well, the idea is to take a little bag, pop your silver change in it, then whenever suits you, bring it back and replace it with an empty one! The money goes to sponsoring children who have been rescued from slavery, or living in extreme poverty. Hence the name Silver Save A Child! Thank you to all those who have supported these children over the last 8-9 years. BUSHFIRE RESPONSE: Australia is currently facing an unprecedented bushfire crisis in many parts of the country. The Australian Bishops have announced that special collections will be taken at Masses on Australia Day weekend to support affected communities. They have also urged Catholics to pray constantly for those affected, for those fighting the fires and for an end to the bushfires. To access prayer resources or for more information, visit www.catholic.org.au/bushfires Special Collection 25/26 January: Parishes across the country taking up a special collection at Masses on the Australia Day weekend, with all funds to be donated to Vinnies’ bushfire appeal. Vinnies is responding in all affected states and territories. Its network of local conferences and support services has seen them rapidly respond throughout the nation as the fire crisis has spread. As well as donations at Masses on Australia Day weekend, people are encouraged to support the immediate response and the ongoing work of Vinnies.

Weekly Reflection

The scriptures use images to try to tell us who God is and who Jesus is. In today’s Gospel we receive a very important image. When John the Baptist sees Jesus coming towards him he says, “Behold the Lamb of God.” Now what does this image mean? Why does John call Jesus a lamb? It seems like such a soft symbol. Anyone at the time of Jesus would know immediately the significance of a lamb. Lambs were associated with sacrifice. In the temple of Jerusalem lambs were killed to atone for the sins of Israel. So when John calls Jesus a lamb, he is pointing to Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. A sacrifice which we believe atones for our sins and reconciles us to God. But what makes Jesus’ sacrifice effective is not that it is bloody but that it is motivated by love. And so calling Jesus a lamb is pointing to Jesus’ sacrificial love by which we are saved. We are called to imitate Jesus action, to live with sacrificial love. Every day you and I have opportunities to act with sacrificial love, to set aside our agenda and our priorities and to reach out to someone else in generosity and compassion. Every time we take up one of those opportunities, the Lamb of God continues to walk in our midst. Christ uses our actions of sacrificial love to continue to bless and heal. When we seize the opportunities that are presented, Christ continues to save the world through us.

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!!
