How lucky are we?! Anyone involved in RCIA ministry knows about Team RCIA: Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal. They are in Australia in October and we have been able to book them for a whole day, right here in our diocese. Saturday October 19, venue and times yet to be organised, but presume a full day gathering. Our Date Claimer Flyer is available here.
The Diocesan Liturgy Council met on Wednesday last week. One of the main items on our agenda was the Perpetual Day of Remembrance which Bishop Bill declared in 2017. This week’s Liturgy Matters seeks to till the ground, inviting us all to think about what such remembering and celebration asks of us as a faith community.
Thank you everyone for your grace and understanding when, due to illness in our presenter’s family, we had to cancel the LiturgyHelp Workshops that were to be held in May. The good news is we are now all systems go for 18 and 19 June.
Let’s start the June long weekend by gathering as a diocesan community to celebrate with our neophytes. St Benedict’s Inner Newcastle is hosting this year’s Neophyte Mass. All details are found here. Come along – everyone is welcome.
Chapter 1 of Vatican II’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy (CSL) is headed ‘General principles for the restoration and promotion of the sacred liturgy’. Anyone who has participated in any formation run by the Diocesan Liturgy Council and me will know that I have a deep love for the liturgical principles.
