EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - Yr B
2nd August 2015
From Fr Suresh
WHERE & WHY ARE YOU LOOKING FOR JESUS?
Our human tendency is to find permanent solution to the temporary problems. We spend our energy and resources to ‘fix’ the issues around us but not trying to find the root cause of the problems. We are always in a hurry to find solutions. We look to God in the same manner. We want Him to fix our problems. It is not a new problem. Even Jesus was faced with similar issues when He was trying to do everything in order to alleviate suffering from the people. After witnessing the multiplication of loaves, people wanted Jesus to be with them so that He can ‘fix’ the problem of hunger. They found in Him an unlimited source of food and miracles – a solution which they were longing for quite a long time. Jesus looks into their hearts and discovers their ulterior motives. After 2000 years, why are we looking for Jesus today?
Growing and Sharing Our Gifts - Ministry Audit
To update the parish records, we are inviting everyone who is part of a ministry group in our parish to complete a ministry audit card.
A ministry is an area within our parish where individuals contribute their time and gifts to the community of faith so together we can grow our community and care for our parish.
If you are already part of a ministry, please complete the audit cards that are available at the parish doors or via the sacristy after Mass and leave them in the boxes provided.
If you feel you would like to give of your time and gifts to a particular area of ministry, also complete the cards and someone will be in contact with you.
Thank you to everyone who gives of their time and gifts so that together, as the parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace Greystanes, we are able to continue to grow as a community in the likeness of Christ.
The Catholic Diocese of Parramatta wants to hear from you
