Will and grace and the journey to Easter

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ, one of the important ceremonies in the life of any diocese is what we call the Rite of Election. It is the ceremony that each diocese celebrates on the First Sunday of Lent each year and it calls those who have been enquiring about the gift of faith and responding to that call, to the Easter sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and first Holy Communion.


Journey of conversion

We have now moved into the season of Lent, a time of renewal where we consciously set our hearts and minds on the liberating message of the gospel that we are called to have life to the full.


Jamila’s positive outlook thanks to Caritas

The annual Project Compassion Lenten Appeal is now underway in parishes and schools throughout the Adelaide Archdiocese, with funds raised helping to support people in need such as single mother Jamila, who lives in the world’s largest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh.


Calendar of kindness

To embrace the 40 days of Lent, students at Saint Ignatius’ College Senior School have been undertaking a daily ‘compassionate gesture’ as outlined in an aptly named Calendar of Kindness.
