World Mission Sunday
So much on today … Confirmation, World Mission Sunday. What could tie this all together? Obviously Jesus! It’s all about him and how he was …then about us being like him!
In the readings we have some clues what it is to be like Jesus. What about serving God with all of your heart—I like that—that person’s prayer will pierce the clouds. You can do that without being tall, just by having a heart full of love. The Gospel is all about what is in our heart as well.
And for you guys about to be confirmed: You will now receive the power of his Spirit and be signed with his Cross on your foreheads. Now you are called to always bear witness to Jesus by the manner of your life. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, seek to serve all people like Christ, who came not to be served but to serve.

News About Exciting Stuff!
So, our parish has talked heaps about the convent. I want to propose that it becomes a community hub and that out of it our parish, St Joseph’s and allied partners, can deliver MacKillop Care.
MacKillop Care would deliver three primary services (a) programs exploring Indigenous culture for the kids at St Joseph School (b) specialised learning such as Lexi’s existing programs for dyslexia (c) care i.e., continued existing day care for the 3-ups and specific care programs for Indigenous mums and their children 1-3 yrs (who are in critical periods of their development). The best news is that Roslyn is already running the Best Start program in the convent twice a week. Patrina is helping her, but also continuing the existing cultural learning programs she runs for our Aboriginal children.
Okay, other stuff! Last week I mentioned Moora shire being interested in acquiring land. Here’s the deal: Council is interested in acquiring a portion of Lot 93, along with Lots 94-96 Kintore Street. Please don’t sell me (I’m on Lot 91!). The vision is to build 9 Aged Persons Accommodation Units to compliment the “Aging in Place Housing Strategy.” It is effectively on the old school site, so we will consult Jim Clarke (now living in Jurien) about the naming of these units if it goes ahead. There you have it! What do you want to do about all of that?

To mums and dads!
Dear parents, if your children have not been baptised I invite you to have them baptised.
Would you like your children to experience the joy, the love and the peace of belonging to God’s family? In a few weeks we will celebrate the Presentation of the Lord known as “Candlesmass” because it recalls when Mary and Joseph brought their child into the Temple to proclaimed “light of the nations.” Would you like your child to be a light in Western Australia?
Why would the baby Jesus, who is not in a position to say yes or no, be baptised? If parents are supposed to provide their children with the basic necessities of life, what is more basic than one’s faith in God? Parents do not allow their children to decide whether they want to go to school, whether they want to eat the right foods or do chores at home. We make these decisions for them. Parents have a responsibility to initiate their children into their faith traditions.
When your child is baptised they become light for the world as they experience and learn to respond to God’s love. Baptism will introduce your child to a world of values and a new realm of freedom as children of God. Baptism is the doorway to a life of love and service unlocking your child’s potential to become that person you know they should be.
Getting your child baptised offers them way more than going to church or to getting them into Santa Maria or Mazenod. It introduces them to the life of God calling them to achieve their dreams and to live a life of fulfillment, joy and happiness.
I wholeheartedly invite you to bring your children to Jesus through baptism, to give them the gift of being sons and daughters of God, to introduce them to the values of the Gospel and have their sacraments recognized by any secondary catholic school that they may be fortunate enough to receive higher education! Please call to arrange the baptism of your child or children.
May God Bless You
