Let us give thanks for the gift of music in our community; for those who play, those who lead the singing, and for the congregation that joins in wholeheartedly. Music is able to lift our hearts towards God and becomes the language of prayer.

Social Justice Sunday

We celebrate Social Justice Sunday on 24th September. This year, the Australian Bishops’ Social Justice Statement is titled: Everyone’s Business: Developing an inclusive and sustainable economy.
The Statement calls for an economy that is founded on justice and offers dignity and inclusion to every person.

BISHOP BILL’S VISIT – by Claire McWilliam

Every day we are to bring our needs, the needs of our loved  ones, and the needs of the whole world into the merciful Heart of Jesus.
Our Lord does not ask us to meet every need. We are only asked to do what we can and leave the rest to Him as He works out His loving plan for each human soul. Remember the “five loaves and two fish principle.” He can work miracles with such little offerings.

 

On the 22nd of July we had Bishop Bill present at Toronto parish.
