CHRISTMAS MASS TIMES

26. Nov, 2017

Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe

The Feast of Christ the King is a very new one on the Church calendar. It was added by Pope Pius XI in 1925. He created this feast as a reaction against the prevailing attitudes of his day – a way to refute the growing threats of communism and Fascism. It asks us: “Who – or WHAT — really rules our lives?”

33rd Sunday: Stay awake, be watchful and ready

Judgment is coming. If you have no faith you will not be worthy of the promises of Christ. So, the message is crystal clear: be like a wise bridesmaid, prepare your heart, be ready to meet Jesus. Loving watchfulness and fidelity to Christ is key.

But be consoled, wisdom is easily discerned by those who love her, and is found by those who seek her. She hastens to make herself known to those who desire her. One who rises early to seek her will have no difficulty, for she will be found sitting at the gate. One who is vigilant on her account will soon be free from care, because she goes about seeking those worthy of her, and she graciously appears to them in their paths, and meets them in every thought. Thanks be to God.

Do you know the five precepts of the Catholic Church?

26. Jun, 2017

Is Missing Mass a Mortal Sin?

Given how precious the Mass 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.

Recently, our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, repeated this precept in his apostolic letter Dies Domini (Observing and Celebrating the Day of the Lord, #47, 1998).

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

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!
