Easter Mass Times

14. Apr, 2019

Palm Sunday

A good preparation for Easter entails reflecting upon Jesus' Passion. The following exercise is recommended during Holy Week taken from the Spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius.

Colloquy. Imagining Christ our Lord present and placed on the Cross, let me make a Colloquy, how from Creator He is come to making Himself man, and from life eternal is come to temporal death, and so to die for my sins.
Likewise, looking at myself, what I have done for Christ, what I am doing for Christ, what I ought to do for Christ.
And so, seeing Him such, and so nailed on the Cross, to go over that which will present itself.

The Colloquy is made, properly speaking, as one friend speaks to another, or as a servant to his master; now asking some grace, now blaming oneself for some misdeed, now communicating one's affairs, and asking advice in them.
And let me say an OUR FATHER.

Fifth Sunday of Lent

Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She replied, “No one, sir.” Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you.
Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.”

This week we listen to the Special Lenten Message from Archbishop Costello, ""We are facing a crisis of faith. The only way through this crisis is a return to fidelity, a return to the Gospel, a return to Christ"

31. Mar, 2019

Fourth Sunday of Lent

In the story of the prodigal son we hear the father declare to his eldest son, "your brother here was dead and has come to life."

Jesus uses this parable against the Pharisees and Scribes who thought they had first dibs on religion thinking they were more like the eldest son whom Jesus exposes as falsely righteous and with a heart full of malice. So, are you like the elder son? I mean of course we are told this Gospel so we identify ourselves in the story as either the falsely righteous or the prodigal son/daughter. I am a prodigal son who squandered much on a life of debauchery

24. Mar, 2019

Third Sunday of Lent

"Unless you repent, you too will all perish”

The message of Medjugorje is a call to repentance, or to conversion back to God. Our Lady gives us five Stones or Weapons –
1. Prayer: Our Lady insists upon prayer
2. Fasting: Another stone in your sack, is fasting from cigarettes, from television, from an evil thought, from a negative project, and from food
3. The Eucharist: You must not just listen to the Holy Mass but live it
4. The Bible: To be read every day!
5. Confession: Monthly

17. Mar, 2019

Second Sunday of Lent

" Moses and Elijah appeared and were speaking of his departure”

Our life is transfigured as we grow in the Love of God, as we become more like Christ by sharing in his victory over selfishness, sin, suffering and even death. Our journey of faith is a journey of light … a journey of darkness undertaken in light of God’s promises to us, in light of the resurrection, and in light of the coming kingdom!

The journey of faith is by nature darkness to the one walking in faith, but for all around, as we walk with Jesus, we ourselves become light for the world

10. Mar, 2019

First Sunday of Lent

Lent is a period of forty days (not Sundays) devoted to prayer, fasting, abstinence and penance. It is a penitential season of prayer and self-denial. Its purpose is our conversion and spiritual renewal by means of enforced acts of self-control and detachment whilst at the same time praying for God’s help to amend our lives. Our conversion finds expression through our helping others

Holy days of obligation

Is Missing Mass a Mortal Sin?

Given how precious the Mass is the Code of Canon Law (#1246) proscribes, "Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church." Moreover, "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass..." (#1247).

Therefore, the Catechism teaches, "Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit grave sin" (#2181), and grave sin is indeed mortal sin. http://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/is-missing-mass-a-mortal-sin.html

January 2019
To mums and dads!
Moora, WA

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

The year five through to seven children at St Joseph's made some amazing tiles and I wanted to honour their work

Here we go...much quicker than building the grotto

Next was to glue the tiles!

Then to grout them! The year seven class helped

And they got filthy! The grout remained in my finger nails for days.

These tiles are wonderful artwork

Now we offer the sacrifice of the Mass on them!! Well done St Joseph kids
