AUSTRALIAN BISHOPS’ SOCIAL JUSTICE STATEMENT 2020-21
Each year the Australian Bishops release a Social Justice Statement in time for Social Justice Sunday which this year falls on 30 August. The statement this year is available on-line as below.
The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the mental health of many members of our parishes, schools and communities. Understanding mental health will help us to be aware of those who need our support. In the Social Justice Statement 2020-21, To Live Life to the Full: Mental health in Australia today, the Bishops invite us all to reject stigmatisation, to work for the transformation of social determinants of mental ill-health and to call for policies and service provision that meets the needs of the poorest and most marginalised members of our community.
THURSDAY MORNING LITURGY OF THE WORD WITH COMMUNION
This Thursday we will celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord with a Liturgy of the Word with Communion at 8am as our priests are on retreat. We wish Bishop Michael and all the Diocesan priests all the best as they gather for their retreat. All are welcome to come along to the Liturgy on Thursday morning as Miss Taske’s RE classes look after the ministries.
GIVING THANKS FOR TCC
COVID19 has meant that we are not able to celebrate TCC Day this Friday in our usual way. We still wanted to give thanks for all that TCC means to our community and so will do so with a recorded prayer that will be played during PC on Friday. It will also be made available on our College website and Facebook page on Friday afternoon.
This Saturday at the 6pm Vigil Mass, Elevate and Music Ministry staff and students will take responsibility for various ministries including proclaiming the Word and Music Ministry. All welcome.
