Dear Fellow Parishioners,
The scene in the Gospel is an easy one to picture. Jesus and his disciples are walking through Galilee and most likely Jesus is up front setting the pace like a good shepherd leading his flock. He’s telling them the harsh reality of what is going to happen now that his ministry seems to be drawing to an end. Of all the people in the world who should be attuned to the truths Jesus is trying to convey concerning the purposes of God towards struggling humanity, it should be Peter and the Twelve Apostles. But they cannot grasp the enormity of the mystery contained in his suffering and death. They are not even willing to make head or tail of his declaration that in three days he will rise again. There is no discussion with Jesus about what has been raised - instead a quiet conversation takes place between them about “Who among them was the greatest.”, or in other words “When Jesus dies, which one of us will take his place?” How self-deluded and blind could these disciples be?
We need your help for one of the following schools only until the end of Term 4. Training and support will be available.
- Manly Vale Public School - Year 4 class on Wednesdays from 9:00am to 9:30am
- Allambie Heights Public School – Kindergarten class on Wednesdays from 11:40am to 12:10pm
- Allambie Heights Public School - Year 4 class on Wednesdays from 12:20pm to 12:50pm
- Allambie Heights Public School - Year 6 class on Wednesdays from 12:20pm to 12:50pm
- Brookvale Public School – Kindergarten class on Fridays from 11.30am to 12pm
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]
You, O Lord, who always are, both before we were and before the world was, have become a refuge for us, within which we turn to You.
Psalm 89, 3

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.
