"be the voice of the voiceless before God
and pray the Ravensbrook prayer"

MOTHER HILDA SCOTT OSB

 


This week on the Journey (Ep 401)

On the Journey this week: Fr Mark De Battista says faith is a decision, each has our own wounds, turn to Jesus and be not afraid to touch him in his wounds, knowing this will set us free and bring us healing peace. Mother Hilda says when it seems the world is unravelling around us, there's 2 ways to respond by being positive rather than overwhelmed. And Trish McCarthy says it takes time to reach depth of character, but only if we experience the right environments. Plus, more great music!

The Holy Spirit wants to animate our lives and impact the ministries of Catholic leaders. How do we respond to this call? How can we help people in our parishes experience the Holy Spirit in a profound way? 

Relying on the power of the Holy Spirit is one of the three keys of Divine Renovation since we know that parish renewal cannot happen without his power.

You are warmly invited to join the DR Team, members of the Catholic Church in Australasia, including your fellows from the Diocese of Wollongong, for a Zoom webinar with Deacon Peter Pellicaan Executive Director, Evangelisation Brisbane, and Kevin Bailey AM as they discuss how to increase the experience of the Holy Spirit in your parish via the following event:

Increasing the Experience of the Holy Spirit in your Parish

Date: Wednesday 21 April 2021
Time: 7:00pm
Venue: Online Webinar via Zoom
Speakers: Deacon Peter Pellicaan & Kevin Bailey

I would encourage you to register below before April 21st 2021:

 

Please note that if you are unable to make the live event via Zoom at 7:00PM, I would still encourage you to register, as you will receive a recording of the talk once the event has concluded. 

Hope to see you there.

All the best
Darren

"For where two or three meet in my name,
I shall be there with them."


MATTHEW 18:20

 

In this midst of social distancing and isolation, sharing faith and hope with one another becomes even more important. As always, we are pleased to provide you with your monthly batch of Faith Circles for the four weeks of April 2021 spanning from the Easter Sunday (Year B) to 4th Sunday of Easter (Year B).

Many groups are temporarily meeting in their Faith Circles groups online. If you have not done this (or are unsure how) you might like to check out our Zoom Resource Guide. We have also created a new section on our diocesan website—Nourishing Our Faith which has links to many faith formation opportunities.
 
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time and we keep our trust and hope in our Lord Jesus.

"Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gift of grace increases as the struggle increases". St Rose of Lima
