2nd Sunday of Lent

2nd Sunday in Lent Year C 170319

Below are some things coming up around the diocese you might be interested in.

An invitation is extended to the faithful of the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong to come together at the 2019 Diocesan Gathering.

The gathering is an opportunity for people from around the diocese to reflect on the issues raised in the plenary process in our diocese, hear the experiences of a selection of Local Animators, and discuss the next steps in the process of listening and discernment.

Deputy national director of Catholic Mission and member of the Plenary 2020 national facilitation team, Mr Peter Gates, will discuss what has been learnt from the listening process and how the next phase of Plenary 2020 will progress.

Members of the Diocese of Wollongong steering committee will present a summary of responses originating from our diocese.

Bishop Brian Mascord will offer some reflections on what he has heard, and we will, as a Church, spend some time in prayer— seeking God’s guidance and blessing as we enter the phase of feedback and discernment.

WHEN             SATURDAY 30 MARCH 2019  11am–3pm (light lunch provided)

VENUE             St John’s the Evangelist Parish, Campbelltown (Parish Hall), 35 Cordeaux Street, Campbelltown

This week on The Journey, our Gospel Luke: 13:1-9 reminds us that we are all sinners. Our Men Alive program that runs within our diocese talks to us about “God’s Currency”, Our very own Trish McCarthy inspires us with her God spot on “Gifts of Nature” and this goes hand in hand with track 7 Wonder of Wonders. We are blessed to be able to use our Lenten program TRUST as our Responsorial Psalm, ‘The Lord is Kind and Merciful.
