Dear Fellow Parishioners,
James, who was the leader of the church in Jerusalem long after the other disciples had dispersed throughout the known world, kept a firm hand on the quarrels and disputes going on among his flock. His Letter to them could very easily be applied to us here in Australia when he condemns anyone “who has never done a single good act but claims he has the faith”. He tells them, and us, in no uncertain terms “If any of the brothers and sisters is in need and you do nothing, Your Faith (without works) is dead!” He wants us to understand that Faith is not just intellectual assent to the revelation of Christ, but impels us to love, appreciate and care for our neighbour, particularly when they are poor and suffering. We are meant to follow St. James’s example: “I will prove to you I have faith by showing you my good deeds” – especially as they are expressed in compassion and generosity towards those most in need.

Thanks from your St Vincent de Paul Manly Vale Conference
Your Vinnies members wish to thank so many people for their support. Firstly, the Winter Appeal raised $11,600, including one generous donation of $5,000 and that will keep us operating for 6 months. Secondly, our wonderful St Kieran’s School raised $1,072 as well as donating a magnificent collection of tinned food—over 1,200 items. The First Communion group chipped in with donations of much needed blankets.Last week the request for good used clothing resulted in 4 carloads of bags which will boost Vinnies shops and fund their support for the needy. The demand for help never slackens and in coming weeks Vinnies will highlight the plight of our drought-stricken farmers. Thanks again for your never ending support.

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, You are the light of my heart and the bread in the mouth of my soul.
You are the virtue dwelling in my mind and the hiding place of my thoughts.

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.
