Prayer Of The Month: Heavenly Father, I call on you right now in a special way. It is through your power that I was created. Every breath I take, every morning I awake, and every moment of every hour, I live under your power. Father you can certainly re-create me. Cast out anything that should not be in me. Mend what is broken. Fill me with the healing power of you spirit. Let the warmth of your healing love pass through my body to make me new so that my body will function the same way you created me. And Father restore me to full health in mind so I may serve you the rest of my life. I ask this through Jesus, our Lord. Amen! (Together-in-Faith prayer group.)

Weekly Reflection


The readings of this weekend, the Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time year B, give the name “sin” to our offenses against God. When we sin — violate His Commandments — we distance ourselves from Him; when we refuse, or fear, to admit our sins, we deny ourselves God’s freely offered pardon and forgiveness. In describing Adam and Eve’s first sin, disobedience, our first reading, taken from Genesis, explains the beginning of evil in the world with its destructive results. The loving relationship joining man to God is destroyed, and the relationship of mutual love between Adam and Eve is weakened. In the second reading, Paul declares to the Corinthians that the many adversities of his missionary work were God’s plan for his spiritual growth; his sufferings, offered with Jesus for the Salvation of the world, would result a glorious reward for him and for all believers who did the same. Today’s Gospel passage reveals how Jesus himself was misunderstood by his own relatives and was criticized, slandered and rejected by the Sanhedrin-led scribes and Pharisees. His sufferings for us give us courage and his offer of healing, strength and forgiveness, so that we can do as he did when we face unfair treatment and criticism in our lives. As the true Disciples of Christ our task is to speak the truth and oppose the evils in our society without condoning or encouraging sinful behaviour even in our dear ones. Let us also acknowledge, appreciate and encourage the people of God of our time who stand for truth and justice in our society with the wisdom of God in their heads, the power of the Holy Spirit in their words and the courage of God in their actions.

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!!
