One Church One Message is about getting every one that attends our church to hear the same message on a given week. At Holy Eucharist this means that our children, students and adults are all being taught a similar theme - so families can discuss it. It means that at every Mass, we repeat the same homily so that every adult has heard the exact same message. One Church One Message is simply about getting everybody in the parish headed in the same direction, as with geese flying in formation, or a crew team rowing together. The message is what we call our weekend homily. It is the centerpiece of our church communication.We invite you to read, reflect and pray on these messages.
HALF TRUTHS: Our message series which began on Pentecost continues for four weeks. A half-truth is a statement that includes some element of truth; the statement might be partly true, but in leaving out the rest of the truth, it brings about a deception. The half-truth often leads us to embrace a whole lie. In this series, we will confront popular misconceptions and errors in thinking that our culture believes. We will explore each of these truths of our faith and show the popular misconceptions they refute, including: there are many ways to God, all religions are the same, you don't need a Church to connect with God, The Holy Eucharist is just a symbol, and God won't give you more than you can handle.
Half Truth Week I: I don’t need the Church to have a relationship with God This weekend we celebrated the birth of the Church at Pentecost. Many people have given up on Church because they do not think they need the Church to connect with God. However, the Church is God’s chosen instrument to bring Christ (who is the way, the truth and the life) to the world. In this week’s message want to look at why committing and loving a local church is absolutely important to grow our faith. The Church was, is and will always be God’s plan for us to connect with him?
