It’s almost Pentecost and that means that it’s 50 days since Easter. Oh boy! Where did that time go? Dare I suggest that it will be Christmas before we know it?! In the meantime, schools and parishes will be getting ready to celebrate this great feast which is often referred to as the birth of the Church. Luke tells us about the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Acts 2:1-42. But every generation needs to experience their own Pentecost. The Church is always needing to be born in each one of us!
Los Angeles Religious Education Congress 2014
April 15, 2014
We have been to the mountain top and it is amazing! This particular mountain top was the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress. Imagine 40,000 people (almost all of them Christians of the Catholic persuasion) living Pope Francis’ Joy of the Gospel for three days. And that joy was not just because the Congress takes place at the Anaheim Convention Centre, which is across the road from Disneyland. For those three days there was serious competition for the title of ‘happiest place on earth’!
The Revolution of Tenderness
February 21, 2014
The school year is now well under way and Ash Wednesday will be upon us before we know it (March 5, 2014). Ash Wednesday is one of the most important liturgical days in our Church year. Therefore, schools will want to celebrate it with a Mass or a liturgy which includes the distribution of ashes. Download this simple liturgy you might like to use, or adapt to suit your own situation.
