1. Introduction

Last year Filipina Megan Young won the Miss World beauty pageant. She later made headlines over her opposition to the Filipino government’s promotion of birth control.  We expect beauty queens to be in favour of world peace and furry animals, but when one says something that cuts so close to home people are amazed!  Megan says she thinks sex is for marriage and if a man isn’t willing to wait he’s not the man for her.  She thought the pressure to engage in pre-marital sex, supposedly safeguarded by birth control, often represents a failure by men to value women sufficiently, and an unwillingness to engage in self-sacrifice and commitment.  She is also no fan of easy divorce.  To the astonishment of the secular media, this very modern girl thinks love, sex, marriage and family go together and what God has joined men should not divide.

CFCA Tagudar Unit pitches in for Leyte Medical Mission PDF Print E-mail

marc viax_3When Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) struck the mostly Visayan region of the Philippines in late November of last year, it left behind a trail of destruction with lives lost particularly in the province where I came from, Leyte.

The once World War II stronghold of Japanese resistance was now left without electricity, food, water and shelter to thousands of people displaced. The local government was left without a limb as it struggled to maintain order from the devastation of Mother Nature.

My hometown of Palompon, in the 3rd district of Leyte, was no exception. Roughly 100 km southwest of capital Tacloban, Palompon faced neighbouring Cebu and Bohol, which were also relentlessly battered by howling winds and pouring rain.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA: Next 25 years… daunting but we will persevere PDF Print E-mail
Written by Admin   
Wednesday, 12 February 2014 16:44

To look forward 25 years is somewhat a daunting task.  As a community when we look forward, individual long term activities may be hard to predict or even plan.  However, the guiding principles that we have applied and received God’s anointing, over the past 25 years should be rigorously embraced.  Joshua summed it up long ago when his guiding principle was “For me and my household, I will serve the Lord.”

As religious fervour continues to diminish in Australia, our community needs to persevere and remain faithful to the call placed on us.  Let us intensify our efforts to be families in the Holy Spirit, to work vigorously for personal, family and church renewal in Australia.

NEW SOUTH WALES: Setting our Eyes on the Prize: Next 25 years and beyond PDF Print E-mail

In this section we feature the commitment, aspirations, and expectations of each area as they all journey towards the next 25 years and beyond as one community of the Lord.

2014 the Beginning of the Next 25 Years

2014 is the first year of what we now call THE NEXT 25 YEARS.  This reference to our future alongside THE NEW EVANGELIZATION, a byword within the Catholic Church, expresses a new fire for our faith and a new power of the Holy Spirit in the face of the challenges confronting us in this modern world.  Above all, the appeal of THE NEXT 25 YEARS is to continue on to be families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth.

In NSW, the Local Area Council’s planning for 2014 is special and important.  We have carefully discerned and identified some key points to strengthen our community in the coming year.  Our plans are as follows;

 

1. Evangelization – Continue to offer our outreach programs to other parishes, i.e. CLPs/PRs, MERs.  Develop new programs (in line with certain needs of the church) or share existing programs to assist the church e.g. sacramental program (for parents of Children attending), marriage preparation, , youth and young adult/singles programs, home CLPs, and support for other ethnic communities in the diocese.
