In Mark’s Gospel we have a collection of parables. The one’s we listen to this weekend are about growth. They serve as a commentary on what has been happening in Jesus’ proclamation of the Kingdom.


Our parish’s mission is drawn from the five facets of a fully functioning parish, as depicted in the following document

5 Facets of a Fully Functioning Parish

Archbishop Malcolm asks us here to reflect on our individual vocations

Gratitude is growing         

Generosity is giving.             

Hope is hopeful         

Joy is joyful        

Family is flourishing       

Love is loving         

FAITH is always faithful.

Mary’s Magnificat Prayer of Praise

My soul glorifies the Lord.

My spirit rejoices in God my Saviour.
He looks on his servant in my lowliness;

Henceforth all ages will call me blessed.

The Almighty works marvels for me, Holy his name!

His mercy is from age to age, on those who revere him.
God puts forth his arm in strength and scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones and raises the lowly.

God fills the starving with good things, sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel his servant, remembering his mercy,
the mercy promised to our ancestors, to Abraham and his offspring for ever.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Sharing the Mission of Jesus:

Lord, I thank you for the wonder of my being, and for all the goodness in my life.

I thank you that you have called me that I might make a difference in the world in which you have placed me.

Open my heart more fully to your Spirit, that I may rejoice in all that you have done and will do in me and through me.    Amen
