During Lent we are invited into prayer to renew and refocus our relationship with God, with ourselves and others, so we can fully celebrate the Paschal Mystery and live life to the full.

Continuing our synodal journey, you are invited to come together in parishes, schools and across the Diocese, both face-to-face and online, to remain connected during the season of Lent.

Project Compassion

Spanning across the six weeks of Lent each year, Project Compassion brings thousands of Australian schools, parishes and supporters together to raise funds for people living in some of the most vulnerable communities across the world. This year’s theme is ‘For All Future Generations’, and reminds us that the good that we do today will extend and impact the lives of generations to come.

Each week you are encouraged to watch the videos from each of the communities that Caritas is supporting in 2022 and reflect on how we can support those in the program and within our local community.

You are also invited to print the linked Resource for Schools and Parishes as a conversation starter about Project Compassion.

Resource 1: Reflections of the Scripture

The following expressions are from members of our Diocesan community reflecting on their encounter with the mystery of God in the scriptures.

Resource 2: Church without Walls

‘Church without Walls’ is an invitation to the whole community to encounter the stories of mission and outreach that take place across our diocese every single day. Even in these difficult times, people of faith are responding to the good news of Jesus Christ and are working towards transforming people’s lives, and indeed, the whole of society. This is the mission that every one of us has a part in. Yet, each of us lives out this mission in a personal and unique way.
