PARISH YOUTH MINISTRY FORMATION
Hi everyone! Over the last few months our young people have been participating in listening sessions with Fr. Mark and Steven Bird. A listening session is exactly that; a time for us to listen. These sessions are a great place to start when it comes to developing the formation of our young people, and to help them en-gage with the Parish and Church. It is also a great first step for our young people in considering the Plenary Council question,
“What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?”
I would like to thank the youth for their contribution to their own formation so far, and thanks to Fr. Mark and Steven, who have really stepped into the spirit of the ‘Year of Youth’. Of course none of this would have been possible without the support of our parents and guardians, so a special thank you for encouraging participation and supporting us.
My name is Benjamin, and I am the Lay Pastoral Assistant for our parish. One of the responsibilities Fr. Mark has asked me to co-ordinate is the youth formation program, and to help our young people develop their own leadership skills as we all embark on this journey.
This Sunday’s response is from Psalm 33; “Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.” St. Peter likens our spiritual hunger to that of a newborn (1 Peter 2:2-3) who need not be taught to hunger, however when hungry ensures all those around them know! Our listening sessions have certainly made us all aware of the hunger our young people have.
To our young people, I look forward to working with you as we start to articulate how our Parish can support you in formation and to share with you my passion for mission and community. If you are in grade 7 or above and haven’t yet joined us, please consider joining our formation program. If parents/guardians would like more information please let me know via email – email@example.com. To our parents and guardians, thank you in advance for your trust and support, I will ensure all of you are kept up to date and remain engaged as we move our youth formation forward.
WALK OF FAITH - MOGGILL
All Parishioners are invited to the walk at Moggill. The walk takes us from St Catherine’s to the nearby Churches and back to St Catherine’s for afternoon tea. Please join other churches on this walk to witness our Christian faith.
LITTLE ROCK SCRIPTURE STUDY
First Corinthians deals with divisions in the believing community at Corinth and the harm that they inflict on 'the body of Christ.' In this study, Paul invites you to find unity in the Gospel message. Cost for the study course is $15 each person. Please register your interest by calling the Parish Office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year we are inviting registered participants with Facebook to contribute to an online group discussion. We recognise that parishioners not able to participate in the study may still have an interest, therefore all parishioners with Facebook are invited to also join the group to see what the study is about. Follow the link below or contact the Parish Office to be invited. https://www.facebook.com/groups/olrstudy

PLENARY COUNCIL LAUNCH
A few weekends ago, Fr. Mark introduced the Parish to the Plenary Council by showing a video during his homily.
Now that we have had some time to consider this important event, we would like to get into the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what it all means. Our Plenary Council Committee are meeting this weekend for the first time so please keep us in your prayers as we come together as a group. As we are in the preparation stage, we are going to start to discern how our Parish is going to be engaged as we consider that all important question we have been asked... “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?” For more detailed information and resources relating to Plenary Council, please visit the website: http://plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au/.
