Parish Notices for Week of 14 May 2023

Notices: Easter 6, 14 May 2023
Good day dear friends, In this week’s Gospel we will hear Jesus say “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” What are the commandments?Love God.Love yourself.Love your neighbour.The commandments are not about moral codes, judgements on ourselves and others, nor are they about separation and condemnation. The commandments invite a relational flow of love that connects us to God, to each other, and to all of creation. Let us love Christ and keep the commandments.

The purpose of these sessions is to introduce Set Sail: Charting the Course for Christ’s Church to the people of the Diocese. Bishop Sam will discuss his vision for the Diocese and the goals of the Set Sail strategic plan. Participants will consider how the goals can be interpreted and realized in their own local contexts. Attendees should be able to return to their parishes with a good understanding of what comes next on our journey, together.Father Richard Rohr is a contemporary leader in the deepening faith and spiritual practice movement throughout the Christian church.

The participants will learn about themselves and discern their life’s calling; explore their faith journey and enter into a relationship with God; enjoy a sense of community and deepened relationships with peers; gain confidence with prayer, scripture, and spiritual leadership; and discern gifts for their calling to serve God’s world. Please pray for those participating in this program this spring.
