FAITH CIRCLES February 2020 | Download Now!



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


MATTHEW 18:20

We are pleased to provide you with your monthly batch of Faith Circles for three weeks of February 2020 spanning the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord to the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A).

Whether through participating in Alpha, Lenten or Advent groups, people have realised the joy and fruitfulness of journeying in faith with people they have come to know, love and trust. All the evidence shows that living and growing in our faith is best done as part of a small group—turning rows into circles.

As the use of Alpha continues to grow in our diocese, Faith Circles is the ideal post-Alpha resource for continuing to build and develop strong community and faith relationships with God and one another.

Faith Circles is free, no strings attached, we just want Catholics to be nurtured by doing life and faith in groups, not on your own—you can print as many copies as you like.

GRACE Lenten Program 2020 | Get in early for Lent!



Due to the early commencement of Lent on 26 February 2020, we are pleased to announce that we are now taking orders for our Grace—Lenten Program 2020 including discount pricing for bulk orders and a GST free option for Australian Catholic Religious Groups starting from just $5.00 per copy!

Grace is a 76-page full colour book (240x170mm) book containing short daily reflections (from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday) in addition to the longer-form Sunday Gospel reflections, spiritual direction, Gospel readings, responsorial psalms, prayers and reflection questions that are traditionally part of the Lenten program for groups. Therefore, Grace is also perfect for individuals who cannot attend a Lenten group.

For those part of a Lenten group, we are honoured to have Fr Christopher G Sarkis (parish priest at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Rosemeadow, NSW) providing the Sunday Gopel reflections and Sr Anastasia Reeves OP (St Cecilia Dominican Sister born and raised on the South Coast of NSW and now living in Nashville, USA) providing the spiritual direction.

The shorter daily reflections have been written by 16 fantastic clergy, religious and lay contributors from around the world including Fr Sean Cullen, Sr Susanna Edmunds OP, Fr Damian Ference, Peter Gilmore, Michael "Gomer" Gormley, Sr Mary Helen HIll OP, Fr Antony Jukes OFM, Sr Elena Marie Piteo OP, Sr Magdalen Mather OSB, Darren McDowell, Trish McCarthy, Matthew Ockinga, Fr Chris Pietraszko, Mother Hilda Scott OSB, Dr Eleonore Stump and Michelle Vass.

Grace also features beautiful religious artworks from the Masters such as Le Sueur, Morelli, Bellini, Luti, Ouwater, and Fra Angelico which Monsignor Graham Schmitzer expertly breaks open as part of his popular artwork reflections.
