Prayer Of The Month: Father, You love us in a perfect way, even in the middle of our mess. And in the middle of our children’s messes, You love them perfectly, too. Thank You for the evidence of Your miraculous power through Jesus’ life. He reminded us that He came to do Your work, and that You are always at Your work. That includes our children… their addictions… their demons… And their mistakes. Thank You Lord for loving our kids beyond our capacity. Amen!!! (Together-in-Faith)

Prayer of the Month:Father we pray specifically for our child’s physical health, mental health, safety, shelter, employment, and dependence on You. Bless us with a released grip on control, send Your Spirit to strengthen us to surrender worry and control. God, You are bigger. You are in control. You are love. You sent Jesus down to earth and after our hearts… to call out the demons, heal disease, and claim His Father’s children… leaving not one behind. Father, we pray, in the name of Jesus, Your perfect Son who died for Your will to be done, for miraculous healing in our children's’ lives and freedom from the demon of addiction. In Jesus Name, Amen. (Together-in-Faith)

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults - Prevention and Protection POLICY STATEMENT
...for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Mark 10:14
Children, young people and vulnerable adults are a gift from God with an intrinsic right to dignity of life, respect and security from physical and emotional harm. They are to be treasured, nurtured and safeguarded. This means that everyone in the church must ensure that the fundamental rights of children, young people and vulnerable adults are respected. This will be achieved through the development of respectful relationships and a commitment to safety embracing appropriate boundaries, behaviours and practices, in accordance with the Archdiocese of Brisbane Code of Ethical Behaviour for Employees and Volunteers who work in service of the Church as well as adherence to the legislative imperatives of the State. https://brisbanecatholic.org.au/assets/uploads/safeguarding-children-and-vulnerable-adults-policy.pdf
