At this stage we are looking to be short of volunteers for 2018, to help out with teaching catholic scripture to the children in our six state schools within our parish. So far, I know that the following scripture classes for 2018 will need a teacher:
Allambie Heights Public School Kindergarten on Wednesdays from 11.40am to 12.10pm
Allambie Heights Public School Year 3 on Wednesdays from 12.20pm to 12.50pm
Manly Vale Public School Year 4 on Wednesdays from 9am to 9.30am
Balgowlah North Public School Year 5 class on Thursdays from 10.30am to 11am
Catholic scripture takes place once a week and classes are just for half an hour. Lesson materials comprising of comprehensive teacher's manuals and student workbooks are provided. A set curriculum is followed. The Diocese also provide to Catechists free training sessions and fun workshops.
If you think you would like to get involved and be part of this enjoyable and rewarding ministry or you would simply like more information please contact me ASAP.
Many thanks , Adriana Bowyer

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, I will not quit until You gather all the fragments of myself from my present scatteredness and deformity, and unite them and cement them for eternity into the peace of our dear homeland, my God, my Mercy. Confessions 12, 16
