REDRESS SCHEME

You would be aware that earlier this year the Catholic Church in Australia committed publicly to joining the Redress Scheme. Last week the Arch-bishop signed the Deed of Participation on behalf of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, which was another step in bring-ing healing to those who have been wounded by abuse in the Church. Claims for redress will be made against the Corporation rather than an individual parish, so you need not be concerned about financial implications at a local level. You might wish to make your parishioners aware that the Archdiocese has signed on and encourage them to en-trust survivors to the intercession of St Mary MacKillop as we have done in the Cathedral.

From Father Nev

22-3-19 – Don’t plant a fig tree in the vineyard!!

 Hi everyone, welcome to the Third Week of Lent. The Primary School has had their $1 million plus classroom development approved and construction will commence after the last day of Term 1 which is the 5th of April. Please be aware that if you park on Cecil St or Central Ave to come to Weekday or Weekend Mass you not be able to walk through the school. You will have walk right around to access the Church. Construction is estimated to last the whole length of Term 2. John the Principal will do his best to keep us up to date with any ongoing issues or delays. You may notice school furniture being stored in the Parish Hall, Morgan Howe and other rooms over the next couple of months. So this weekend’s readings are quite interesting. They look straight forward but as my fellow Lenten Program pilgrims can attest there are a number of layers!! We talked about what does repent mean? Some people said it means to be sorry. Others said it was acknowledging that we have done something wrong. Repent means to turn away from sin. This raises the question, if we are not aware that what we are doing is a sin then how can we repent? On Ash Wednesday the priest might have said to you as he was asking your forehead “Repent from sin and believe in the Gospel”. This means not only are we turning from the sin we are conscious of, but we are then compelled to believe and practice living out the Good News. Someone shared that the Greek Word for repent is metanoia. Metanoia implies a deep transformative journey through penitence and spiritual conversion. This week’s Gospel talks about planting a fig tree in the vineyard. If you were a savvy gardener, you would never ever do this. The fig tree’s roots are extensive and run deep. The fig tree would deplete the vineyard of nutrients and the shade it would bring would not be conductive to bear the best grapes. Do we sabotage God’s work through acts of selfishness and pride? Do we do so many things through obligation or habit that we are failing to flourish as Jesus intended? Despite our misguidedness, Jesus persists with our failings and ultimately shows us mercy. If God wanted to he could cut down everyone of us because we can’t possibly live up to his expectations. He did this with the Flood in Genesis but He vowed to never do this again. Jesus then comes amongst us and says be merciful just as my Father is merciful. As we work though the barrenness of our sinfulness know that our Lord is compassion and as strive to be fruitful followers.

Blessings Fr Nev

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
