  • YEAR OF MERCY

    The extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy
    began this week with Pope Francis opening the Holy Door at St Peter’s in Rome on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
    Bishop O’Regan opens a Holy Door in
    St Mary’s Cathedral, Sale, today.
    Here at St. Michael’s we have nominated a door as our own holy door, it is designated with the Year of Mercy emblem. A cross has been setup as a prayer focus. You can read about the logo near our reconciliation room which is a particular place to encounter God’s mercy. We are invited to experience God’s mercy and become “merciful like the Father” (Luke 6:36)


  • PRAYER TO ST MICHAEL

    Saint Michael, the Archangel,
    defend us in the hour of battle.
    Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God restrain him,
    we humbly pray; and do thou,
    O Prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all
    the other evil spirits who roam through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
    Amen.
    Most Sacred Heart of Jesus -
    Have mercy on us x 3

  • National Homelessness
    Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ writes: When we see homelessness as a problem it can seem intractable... If we see the faces of people who are homeless…it all becomes simple. In a wealthy society like ours people who are homeless have a right to shelter for themselves and their families. It is essential for their self-respect. So it must be provided. To address the needs of people who are homeless we must first ask them how they came to be on the streets and what forces them to stay there. .... They will speak of a violent and neglected childhood, of the lack of opportunity to learn or work, of addiction and ill fortune, of the lack of emergency accommodation and of money. How do we become part of the solution? Pick up a copy of Fr Andrew’s full article with Homelessness Australia statistics on the reverse from the Social Justice stand in the foyer.
