PLENARY COUNCIL 2020

2020

What do you think God is asking of us in Australia today?
The last Plenary Council held by the Catholic Church in Australia was in 1937- just over 80 years ago. Much has changed! In 2020 we will hold a Plenary Council about the future of the Catholic Church in Australia. All Australians are invited to engage in an open and inclusive process of listening, dialogue and discernment around the question "What is God asking of us in Australia today?" Pentecost Sunday is the National Launch of the Plenary Council 2020 followed by the formal launch for the Perth Archdiocese at the Vigil Mass on Trinity Sunday. A representative from each parish will receive a special “Plenary Council Candle” to take back to their parish. We light this candle at our Parish Launch of the Plenary Council 2020 on all Sunday Masses. The Plenary Council will be held in two sessions: the first in October 2020 in Adelaide, the second in May 2021 in Sydney. Approximately 250 people will be delegates attending the Plenary Council Sessions. The agenda for the Plenary Council will be developed from the sense " of faith" amongst the people of God in Australia. Over the next few weeks as a parish, we will learn more about how we can make a contibution and also invite others to do so.
Come, Holy Spirit of Pentecost.
Come, Holy Spirit of the great South Land.
O God, bless and unite all your people in Australia and guide us on the pilgrim way of the plenary Council. Give us the courage to tell our stories and to speak boldly of your truth. Give us ears to listen humbly to each other and a discerning heart to hear what you are saying. Lead your church into a hope-filled future, that we may live the joy of the Gospel. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, bread for the journey from age to age. Amen. Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for us, St Mary MacKillop, pray for us.
Plenary Council Discussions: The FUTURE of OUR Church: Have your say and Listen yo Others on Sunday 12 August at 11:15 am in the Parish Hall. BYO lunch, tea & coffee provided. Sign-up in church foyer.

VINNIES WINTER APPEAL

svdp

When you can’t afford to pay your rent, do you risk falling deeper into debt, or do you face sleeping on the street? When you can’t afford to pay your energy bill, do you and your family decide to freeze in a cold home or to go hungry? Every day in Australia, someone faces impossible choices like these. They need help from you and I to get through the winter. Over 116,000 women, children and men are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness on any given night in Australia, a statistic Vinnies knows all too well. It’s easy to forget that people struggling to make ends meet are people just like you and me. They face choices no-one should have to make. A job loss, physical or mental health issues, toxic relationships – can all threaten someone’s security. Winter is a very difficult time of year if you are homeless or you can’t pay for your heating or other essentials. Vinnies rely on donations from the community to support their Winter Appeal. Please give generously.

OPEN NEW HORIZONS FOR SPREADING JOY

Goal 1: To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person - The Church is challenged to foster in young people a sense of Catholic wisdom and identity that will provide a guiding direction for the rest of their lives. As a community, parish and family we are called to work together as a broader Church community to walk with young people on their faith journey.
Goal 2: To draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community - Faith communities should strive to be places that draw in young people, give them a sense of belonging, and offering them opportunities to minister side by side with adults.
Watch this space !
Goal 3: To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today - We the Church parishes, communities, schools and families, are called to reach out to young people, welcome them, help them find their place in the Church, and accept and encourage the gifts they bring to the whole community. Without young people, the Body of Christ is incomplete.
Focus on Families (June-July) Useful tips to help parents engage in the Year of Youth and encourage your children to deepen their faith.
3. PRIORITISE FAMILY TIME
Try to understand the issues and the struggles that your children face. Listen patiently without judgement.
Youth Mass 6 pm Saturday 28 July 2018.
VALUE OF LIFE, talk by Fr Ossie Youth Event Saturday 28th July 2018 at 7 pm after youth mass.
7. SHARE YOUR FAITH

Next Youth Mass 6 pm Saturday 25 August 2018.

In the interests of the good health of all parishioners' we ask that you stay home when unwell so as to focus on recovery and avoid passing germs on to vulnerable people. Those at Mass will pray for your speedy recovery. Many thanks for your understanding.

WORKING WITH CHILDREN CARD/CHECK.

Working with children

During our recent priests meeting with the Archbishop at the Vietnamnese Catholic centre. all priests were reminded to ensure that those who are volunteers in the parish and are in contact with children must have a Working With Children Card. The penalty is very heavy for not possessing a WWC card, the parish can be fined $50,000. Apparently, the Australian Federal Police do spot checks. Should you have any doubts about the need to have a WWC card, please approach Fr Ossie for more clarification. Thank you.
We have been formally advised by the Working with Children authorities that EME´s are included in the list of those required to hold a valid WWC Card. This is effective immediately. We encourage you to NOT view this in a negative light, rather as a positive initiative to implement strategies that will help prevent the strocities of the past and keep our children safe now and in the future. We extend our sincere appreciation to our EME´s for their prompt attention to this matter aither by providing their current WWCC details or completing the application requirements to get a WWCC.
