Social Justice

Perhaps you have already begun to think ahead to the upcoming summer break and the weeks leading up to Christmas   –   the season of Advent.  What a beautiful time of the year as we prepare for the festivities and feasting to celebrate the birth of Jesus!  A time of preparation and anticipation as we plan the menu, bake those traditional Christmas delights and buy gifts.  But as we do this, let us remember that for many people, right here in Sydney, what they experience for Christmas is what we give.  Christmas festivities for them will depend on how generous we are.  That is a sobering thought and it is one which may inspire us to action.   

Next week we will be launching our annual  Christmas Hamper appeal.  We work with the St Vincent De Paul Society.  Your daughter will have information about what they would like in those hampers.  It would be greatly appreciated if you could pop a few extra items into your shopping trolleys over the weeks ahead.

Perhaps you would also like to volunteer at the Exodus Foundation as part of your Christmas observance.  Below is information about that and you can contact Exodus directly if you’d like to. 

In this Year of Mercy, let us continue to reach out!

 

I have come so that you may have life in abundance

Jesus
