SYNOD Listening Circles.
We are all called to contribute to making our local, national, and global church better and to raise awareness about the things that we feel strongly about, so have YOUR say about YOUR CHURCH!
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.
Listening Circles on Women in the Church will be taking place on Monday evening 7 March @ 18:00 via Zoom or in-person in the Parish Centre on Saturday 12 March @ 09:00.
Please contact Carol Teichler – email firstname.lastname@example.org to register and for more information.
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: Each tree is known by its fruit. What are the gifts and talents the Lord has given me? How is he asking me to use them? (Luke 6:39-45)
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
you alone are the source of every good
gift, /of the vast array of our universe, /
and the mystery of each human life. /
We praise you and we thank you / for
your tender, faithful love. / Everything we are / and everything we have /
is your gift. After having created us, /
you have given us / into the keeping of
your Son, Jesus Christ. / Fill our minds with his truth / and our hearts with his love, /that in his spirit we may be bonded together / in a community of faith, / a parish family, / a caring people. / In the name and Spirit of Jesus, / we commit ourselves to be good stewards / of the gifts entrusted to us, / to share our time, / our talent, / and our material gifts / as an outward sign / of the treasure we hold in Jesus.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
