Dear Fellow Parishioners,
Earlier this week Brisbane Archbishop Mark Coleridge gave an interview to a local newspaper in which he predicted the Plenary Council 2020 will spark cultural and structural changes in the Church which will be crucial for its future. He said such changes are crucial for renewal, following the sexual abuse scandal that has rocked the Church globally since the 1980s.
Archbishop Coleridge told The Courier Mail the Plenary Council may open up for discussion the idea of allowing Catholic priests to marry. “I would not exclude that,” he said of the debate on the celibacy of priests.
A Plenary Council is only second in importance to an Ecumenical Council - the last of which was the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican, which was opened by Pope John XXIII in 1962 and closed by Pope Paul VI in 1965.
Archbishop Coleridge, who is president of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, has played a leading role in the establishment of the Plenary Council, which will begin in Adelaide in October 2020.

Teaching catholic scripture at any of these schools would suit anyone who have been a scripture teacher in the past or anyone who is confident to step straight into a classroom situation and teach catholic scripture. You do not need to be teacher trained. The Diocese provide us with a curriculum that is taught at the schools. Please note that I am also always looking for scripture teacher helpers to go into the classroom with a teacher and assist.
NEEDED FOR NORTH HARBOUR PARISH
I have really enjoyed co-ordinating and being involved with children’s liturgy for many years now. I remember starting children’s liturgy when my first daughter, Sarah was in Kindergarten at St Kieran’s school and Sarah is now 23 years old so we’re looking at over 18 years. I can’t even remember when I took on the role as co-ordinator but it probably was a couple of years after starting as a volunteer. I can truly say that Children’s Liturgy together with being a Catechist is the most satisfying and rewarding ministries that I have been a part of. However, I feel that it is time for me to step down as co-ordinator and a volunteer of children’s liturgy and for someone else to take on this very satisfying and rewarding role.
I am looking for someone to take on this role beginning in Term 4 of this year, Monday, 15 October. You may even wish to share this role with a friend or two.

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]
O God, You are the Truth and the Light of my heart. Let me listen to You and not to the darkness within me.

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.
