We Are Called

When we join in the Celebration of the Eucharist we use various gestures and actions.

As we continue to focus on the Liturgy of the Word we recognise that

  • we sit when we listen to the First Reading, Psalm, and Second Reading and during the homily
  • we stand to acknowledge that Jesus is with us when the Gospel is proclaimed.

Before the Gospel is proclaimed by the Priest, he makes the Sign of the Cross with his thumb on the first word of the reading in the Lectionary and announces the Gospel. We respond with the words Glory to you, O Lord, while making a Sign of the Cross with our thumb on our forehead, lips and heart. This gesture is a form of prayer for the presence of the Word of God in our mind, on our lips, and in our heart.

Candles represent the light of Christ and, as the Gospel is proclaimed, altar servers may stand and hold candles on either side of the Priest to highlight the significance of this part of the Eucharistic celebration.  At the conclusion of the Gospel the candles are returned to their place near the altar.

This week at Mass the gospel reading, proclaimed by the Priest, is the very familiar recount of Jesus commissioning of the seventy-two disciples to go ahead of him to prepare the way. The message they were to bring was one of peace……’Let your first words be, ‘Peace to this house!…The Kingdom of God is very near to you!’

As we listen to the Gospel reading on Sunday reflect on how we are bringing peace to others.

Invitation for the End of Term Mass
Tomorrow we will gather as a community for a Eucharistic Celebration where we will give thanks for God’s love and care and for the many blessings we have received.

The Gospel reading for the Mass focuses on the mercy. The reading recounts when Jesus and the disciples ate with those who needed mercy – the tax collectors and the sinners. Today, Jesus asks us to follow him and to always be merciful to others.

The Mass will commence at 9.00am at the Infant Jesus Church. We are looking forward to parents joining us for this celebration.

Throughout this term we have had several weekly cake stalls to raise funds for LifeLink.

The cake stalls have been amazingly well supported by all of our parents who have very generously donated a fantastic assortment of treats for all the students to buy at recess.

The cake stalls have also been very well supported by the students who have come ‘ready’ to buy a least one treat, sometimes more, each Thursday.

We have raised a total of $2, 845.60 throughout the term. These funds will be sent to LifeLink to support their work in the Archdiocese by providing for those in need.
