One church one message

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.

Humility Factor - Lenten Message Series

It has been said  that the greatest Christian virtue is humility. As important as humility is, it is often misunderstood. Humility  is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less. Humility is not practiced because we are unaware of the benefits - specifically that he who humbles himself will be exalted. In this series, we will clear up some of the misconceptions about humility and discuss why it is so beneficial.

Secrets of a happy family

All of us come from families that are diversified by size and other factors, but share many commonalities, including our strong emotions when it comes to different familial relationships and experiences. In this series, we will look at our family relationships – both in the past, present, and future - and will explore three principles of every happy family: successful families accept the messiness of family life with grace and flexibility; are marked by mutual respect; and are committed to a larger purpose beyond themselves.

Read Father Andrew's message HERE

Scripture: Luke 3:10-18

When John the Baptist is asked by individuals how to repent and turn back to God, all his answers have to do with money and giving. He tells those with an extra coat to give to the poor. He tells soldiers to stop collecting more than their fair share. In this message we looked   at how the best yes might mean saying no to some extra stuff we don’t need and giving to those in need.
