This feast is not about bidding farewell to Jesus, but about the hand-off of his work to us. It didn’t take long for the early church to figure that out, but the question is whether we got the message. The healing of our broken world is not yet completed. Others may do their part, but they can’t do the work that is uniquely ours. Each one of us is called to be his voice, hands and feet in the world.

North Harbour Parish, along with Catholic Youth Broken Bay Team Leader Kelly Paget, is holding a Listening Forum on Friday 25th May from 6.30pm to 8.30pm in the parish centre at St Kieran’s.

All youth (aged Yr6 and above) and young adults (18 to 30) are encouraged to attend this forum to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns on topics and issues that matter to them. A shared dinner will be held from 6.30pm and parents are asked to bring a dish.

Share the Journey has at its heart the vision of a united global human family. We are a global confederation, run by Caritas Internationalis, of 165 national development agencies.
We are the charitable arm of the Catholic Church and our confederation works at diocesan, national, regional and international level on issues such as poverty, migration, climate change, hunger, health and emergencies.
Pope Francis launched the 2 year campaign from Saint Peter’s Square on 27th September 2017 when he invited everyone around the world to “Share the Journey” with refugees and migrants.
If you are passionate about migration and interested in what’s happening in our world, then this is a campaign where you can make a difference at all levels. This is an opportunity to share something of yourself and offer it up in friendship in exchange for friendship and a journey of discovery.

He Who has given us the gift of being also gives us the gift of being good. He gives it to those who have turned back to Him. He even sought them out before they were converted and when they were far from His ways. [St Augustine, On Psalm 103 (4), 2]
Lord, in case I would falter, You gave me a remedy through Your admonishments. You established the law of forgiveness, so that as I forgive may be forgiven.
