TODAY   [1] On the 28th Sunday of the Year, we celebrate the Universal and healing love of God that is made flesh in Jesus. Elisha the Prophet heals the foreign enemy general and Jesus reaches out to the lepers who literally survive on the edges of society, condemned and shunned by all. And the one who returns to give thanks is again the foreigner! And in the special ‘Extraordinary Month of Mission’, our mission is clear – to reach out in the name of Jesus to all the excluded and those far away with the same Universal and Healing love we find in Jesus!
[2] In this Week of Prayer for Prisoners and their families, let us reach out to these shunned and marginalised of our society with loving prayer.
[3] Signed Mass with the Catholic Deaf Association at 3.00pm – all welcome.

NEXT SUNDAY    [1] On the 29th Sunday of the Year, we celebrate Jesus the man of prayer who exhorts us never to give up praying, brining our own needs but even more the needs of a world wounded by injustice, inequality, war and poverty … to our ever-loving Abba (Father). Let us bring  him the needs, not our wants, bring him the problems not our solutions – and bring them in an ever-deepening faith.
[2] This is World Mission Sunday when we recognise the awesome and joyful responsibility for proclaiming the Gospel and serving the Kingdom in word, in prayer, in life-style and in action of service and witness. We are all called to be ‘missionary disciples’. There is a Retiring Collection for the Church World-wide Mission – please be generous.
[3] Appropriately, as we reflect upon the mission of the Church, we celebrate the Baptism of some of our children – baptised into a missionary Body of Christ. P.lease pray for them
[4] Mass with the LGBTI community and friends at 3.00pm – all welcome.

DIOCESAN PRAYER    The Diocese prays today for all Hospital and Prison Chaplaincies,  for the clergy and laypeople involved in the important ministries and all whom they serve. Can we also pray for all medical staff in our hospitals and all who staff our prisons.
