  • 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

  • SOCIAL JUSTICE SUNDAY

    Today. The Australian Bishops’ Social Justice Statement is titled: ‘A Place at the Table: Social justice in an ageing society’. It challenges us to recognise their significant contribution to society and emphasises that this contribution should not be valued in mere economic terms. The Statement calls for justice for those who are most vulnerable and warns about a view of older people as burdensome or dispensable. Copies of the Australian Catholic Bishops’ statement are available in the Foyer and at the back door or may be downloaded from www.socialjustice.catholic.org.au. Also available is a Ten Steps leaflet outlining ways we can all assist and support the elderly in our community. “Just as God asks us to be his means of hearing the cry of the poor, so too he wants us to hear the cry of the elderly” Pope Francis, 2016.
