The topics cover parish issues, marginalized groups and special interest topics. There are 14 different topics, have a look at the parish website for details and the questions that will be covered at https://www.bryanstoncatholic.co.za or via the Parish App.
You can participate by 1) joining a Listening Circle Group on a specific topic by emailing your group choice to email@example.com and the group facilitator will let you know when that group is running. OR 2) by making a written submission by picking up a response questionnaire after the 26 February Saturday evening Mass or, 27 February after the Morning Masses. Tables will be set up outside the church. The Parish Finance Committee will report on our finances at the weekend Masses on 26/27 Feb. We will also ask you to dedicate yourself to our parish.

VOCATION REFLECTION: The Lord calls us to be merciful as our God is merciful. The Lord calls us to do God’s will. Pray for vocations to priesthood and religious life. (Luke 6:27-38)
PRAYER AGAINST CORRUPTION
Lord, we present our country South Africa before you. We exalt and bless your name
for all the blessings, graces and love
that you have given to us as a nation.
Our country is now weighed down by many social, political and economic problems.
We pray for a spirit of conversion
in our nation and its leadership;
that all hearts may turn away from greed and corruption and work for justice and peace. Protect those who speak out against greed, patronage and corruption; give them the wisdom and courage to be the voice of the marginalised. Renew our nation and its leadership by the light of the Gospel. Help us to live out the values of your kingdom. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
