27th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Increase our faith!
The readings introduce to us the idea that righteousness is long suffering; it is persistent fidelity to God even when things aren’t going our way. Christians know that this means journeying with Jesus in our lives. This long suffering journey is not undertaken in vain—as we are promised every gift in Christ if we keep on striving to do what is right and just.
St Paul tells us that we have been given that gift already—that of God’s love burning in our hearts. This gift is not a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power, and love, and self-control. Of course we who have been given this gift have to evolve. We are given the freedom to grow into this gift and be transformed by it as we make choices to serve and love one another. We are free to do the right thing but we can’t expect praise. It is only fitting. More importantly, doing the right thing is reward in itself.

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

Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us :)
At it again!
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
Celebration of the Eucharist Moora style!
Witnessing the Easter miracle in 2016
Resurrection ...the tomb is empty!
The light of Christ, Jesus is Risen!
Thanks be to God!
