Our Church is currently still basking in the surge of newness of life and purpose ushered in with the celebration of Easter.
On Sunday, May 19 this year, many communities within the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide will gather to take part in the annual Marian Procession and Peace Rally. This year’s procession is the 70th in the series and will be a public honouring of Mary, the Mother of God and Mother of the Church.
Throughout the season of Lent, the Church offers us opportunities to re-engage with our faith and deepen our relationship with God and with one another. KATHY HORAN explores the different ways we can participate in the Lenten journey.
It’s that time of year again where the events and activities all around us signal the end of the current year. Our time and energies are taken up with rounding off this year’s work so we can have some respite from work and hopefully some quality family time.
For many Catholics, Sunday Mass is just part of the fabric of our Christian life. We began attending Mass at an early age and became familiar with its structure and content over the years almost ‘by osmosis’. Those of us who attended Catholic schools will certainly have received some teaching about Mass and the sacraments, but for many of us, it is not something that we have studied deeply.
