Majellan Family Prayers

This week’s Family Prayer is dedicated to families whose loved ones are dying. It is natural to want to be close to family members and to support one another during times of grief. Unfortunately, lockdowns have made it difficult for families to be together. So, whatever the circumstance, we pray families may be comforted by God.

Celebrating 200 years of Catholic Education in Australia

Catholic schools have grown to become the largest provider of schooling in Australia (outside government) with one in five school age students now attending a Catholic school. In 2021 as we celebrate 200 years of Catholic education, we recognise and appreciate the role of Catholic schools in forming students in their faith, while providing an education that enables them to make a meaningful contribution to the world.

Pope Francis appealed “in the name of God” for calm in the Holy Land, after seven days of fighting that has left scores of people dead and hundreds more wounded.

Family in the Light of the Word

The second video in a twelve part series has been released by Pope Francis to commemorate the year of the family. Pope Francis says: “How do we imagine God’s love? Is there a concrete reality in the world that helps us see this love with our own eyes? Certainly there is! It is the family! The image of God is reflected in man and in woman, in conjugal love: a living ‘icon’ through which God is made manifest”.
