  He is Risen We are Resurrection

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Resurrection is one of the great parishes in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.

The reason this claim can be made is simple; Resurrection parishioners make us so.  We are a culturally diverse parish of all ages, united as members of the Body of Christ who gather around the Table of the Lord. As brothers and sisters in the Risen Jesus we rejoice in and share the GOOD NEWS of the Risen Lord.

Welcome to Resurrection

Our parish has 11 choirs, around 160 parishioners who attend the Parish Meeting Night (1st Wednesday of the month; the night all Parish Groups meet), and over 500 parishioners committed to at least one Parish Ministry. There are groups for seniors, youth, those in their twenties, grief, outreach, playgroup, St Vincent de Paul and many more. Please know you are welcome to pray, worship, join any of the groups and participate in the life of this great parish.

As Pope Francis says, “There is no such thing as a part time Christian.”

Year of Mercy

Pope Francis has declared this year to be an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. It is a time when he invites us to become pilgrims and contemplate Jesus Christ as the face of God’s mercy. The year got off to a great start with 150 parishioners walking from our church into St Patrick’s Cathedral and passing through the “Door of Mercy”, 24 Hours For The Lord and  a Parish Mission every Friday in Lent on God’s mercy.

 

The official Web site for the “Year of Mercy” it is www.im.va  has the calendar of events.

Pope Francis - Daily Meditations  

Do you know that the Vatican Press Office publishes a summary of Pope Francis’ daily homilies? The summary is less than an A4 size; but they are well worth reading.

Simply go to the Vatican site www.vatican.va and scroll onto “Daily Meditations”. Don’t forget to request the English translation.

Visit a Buddhist Temple

During this Jubilee Year of Mercy Pope Francis challenges us to leave our comfort zones and go to the “peripheries”.
One way of doing this is to meet with people from different Faiths, not for the purpose of conversion but for understanding and sharing.
On Sunday 21 August after our 10.30am Mass parishioners are invited to participate in another pilgrim walk. This time our destination is the Vietnamese Buddhist Centre in Burke Street Braybrook. It is 10 km, door to door (20km return). We have been invited for lunch. It will be vegetarian.
After lunch we are invited on a tour which will include visiting their temple. It will be an opportunity mingle and learn something about Buddhist faith and practice.

Garden Help
Do you have a couple of hours to spare during the week? If so, you might offer some of your time and help keep our gardens “up to scratch”. Contact the parish office if you can help.

Live Streaming  

The data projection in the church has enhanced live-streaming enabled. This opens up all sorts of possibilities; for instance a funeral or a wedding could be transmitted live to say the Philippines or any other country. A guest speaker’s talk could have a much wider audience through this initiative.

Data Projection

Would you like to help with our data projection? Would you like to operate the camera during 10.30am Mass? You are invited to stay for a short time after our 10.30am Mass.

Parishioners coming from or tracing their origins Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, or Sri Lanka intend to celebrate a special Mass on Sunday 28 August at 10.30am.

Mass will have a very sub continental flavour.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not be afraid any longer, little flock,
for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.
Sell your belongings and give alms.
Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out,
an inexhaustible treasure in heaven
that no thief can reach nor moth destroy.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.

“Gird your loins and light your lamps
and be like servants who await their master’s return from a wedding,
ready to open immediately when he comes and knocks.
Blessed are those servants whom the master finds vigilant on his arrival.
Amen, I say to you, he will gird himself,
have them recline at table, and proceed to wait on them.
And should he come in the second or third watch and find them prepared in this way,
blessed are those servants.
Be sure of this:
if the master of the house had known the hour when the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.
You also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect,
the Son of Man will come.”
