MOSES

Moses’ story is found in Exodus. He was a very important person in the Bible for both Jewish and Christian traditions.

Watch the story of Moses

What was the significance of Moses?

What did he do to help his people?

Why do you think he was chosen?

 

 

Choose one of the Gospels and read some of the scriptures about the teachings of Jesus. Read the stories that you can relate to in your own life and present a modern day interpretation.

  • Jesus’ miracles and teachings (Mt 4–25; Mk 1–13; Lk 4–19:27; Jn 2–17)

THE CHURCH IN AUSTRALIA

June8

The Catholic Church began in Australia with the arrival of the First Fleet in  1788. Of the 1044 convicts who arrived, 316 were Catholics. For some years there
were no priests or religious in the settlement, so the laity assumed  responsibility for keeping the faith alive. 

Fr Dixon, a convict, celebrated the first Mass in Australia on May 15, 1803  after being pardoned and permitted to say Mass and celebrate baptisms and marriages. 

In 1820 Father John Therry and Fr Philip Conolly arrived in Australia as the first official priests to minister to Catholics in the colony. 

Father Therry dedicated the first Catholic Church in the Colony to Our Lady  Help of Christians. 

In 1835 John Bede Polding was appointed as Australia‟s first Catholic bishop.  He set out to establish a Benedictine Monastery, to provide efficient
administrators to set up dioceses and respond to the pastoral needs of the  community.

The Pope, in consultation, appoints bishops to lead dioceses. Bishops succeed  the apostles through the Holy Spirit who is given to them. They are the
constituted pastors in the Church and are to be teachers of doctrine and the  priests of sacred worship
(Code of Canon Law, #372) 

The pastor leads the parish community in the name of the bishop by:  
– ensuring that the Word of God is proclaimed; 
– fostering works which promote the Spirit of the gospel; 
– caring for the Catholic education of children and young people; 
– bringing the Gospel message to those who have given up religious practice; 
  – ensuring the Blessed Eucharist is the centre of the parish assembly of the faithful; 
– encouraging all to pray and to take a lively and active part in sacred  liturgy  (Code of Canon Law #528)

 In 1838 the Sisters of Charity were the first religious order from overseas  to be invited to set up communities to work with the Catholic people. Caroline  Chisholm also arrived in this year. She is well known in our history for her  work with the immigrant poor and wayward girls.

Through the 1800s local Religious Orders were established in Australia to  respond to the pastoral needs of the community. During this time, many religious  congregations from overseas established foundations to help the Church‟s work. 
 

Catholic schools in Australia were established and largely staffed by lay  people until the Public Institution Act in 1880. With government assistance  withdrawn, the Church had to establish its own Catholic education system. Religious sisters and brothers  were encouraged to come to Australia to help staff the schools and Australian  Catholics had to support the schools financially.

The Catholic Church community consists of people from many countries  throughout the world.

What is stewardship?

Stewardship is recognizing that everything we have is a gift from God. Stewardship calls us to realize that each of us is called to give as God has given to us.

Watch the clip on Parable of Talents. It will be our starting point on how we can put a focus on the way we live our lives.

Each of us can set goals that are achievable. At the end of the semester you can reflect on your achievement and refine your goal.

PROMOTE JUSTICE, UPHOLD HUMAN DIGNITY

ADVENT- PREPARING FOR JESUS, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

Why are Advent and Christmas important seasons for Christians?

 

THE JESSE TREE

The Jesse tree represents Jesus’ family tree. The name is taken from Isaiah 11:1, in which Jesus is referred to as a shoot coming up from the stump of Jesse, the father of David.

The ornaments on the Jesse tree tell of Jesus’ ancestors, and of the events leading to Jesus’ birth.

What is Advent?

During the first two weeks of Advent we light the first two purple candles. The Third Sunday of Advent is called Gaudete (Rejoice) Sunday.

On this day we celebrate that our waiting for the birth of Jesus on Christmas day is almost over. Rose is a liturgical color that is used to signify joy, so we light the single pink candle on the third Sunday of Advent.

Then on the fourth Sunday of Advent, the final purple candle is lit to mark the final week of prayer and penance as we wait expectantly for the soon-coming birth of the King of Kings.  Four Weeks of Advent:

  • The 1st Sunday of Advent symbolizes Hope with the “Prophet’s Candle” reminding us that Jesus is coming.
  • The 2nd Sunday of Advent symbolizes Faith with the “Bethlehem Candle” reminding us of Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem.
  • The 3rd Sunday of Advent symbolizes Joy with the “Shepherd’s Candle” reminding us of the Joy the world experienced at the coming birth of Jesus.
  • The 4th Sunday of Advent symbolizes Peace with the “Angel’s Candle” reminding us of the message of the angels: “Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men.”

ADVENT WREATH

ALL YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT ADVENT!

Advent, which comes from the Latin word for “arrival” or  “coming,” is a period of preparation for the birth of our Lord. Advent begins  four Sundays before Christmas and is the start of the Christmas season, which  lasts through the Baptism of Our Lord. The first Sunday of Advent also marks the  beginning of the liturgical year, the Church’s “New Year’s Day,” at which
time  we change the cycle of readings we are using at Mass. 
Advent is a time of joyous anticipation, but also of penance
and preparation for the great Christmas feast. The liturgical color of the season is purple, a sign of penance, which is also used during Lent.
 
God’s Story: John the Baptist

God’s Story: Preparing for Jesus from Crossroads Kids’ Club on Vimeo.

Throughout the Bible, God prepared us for his son, Jesus, the one who rescued us from all the wrong things in the world. We see examples of this in the story of Isaac (Genesis 22:1-19), the Passover (Exodus 12:1-30), the prophecy of Isaiah (Isaiah 53), and the Last Supper (Luke 22).
