30th October 2011 (Year A) TOM ELICH parish priest MARY RANDLE SGS pastoral associate HELEN PRICE and PAM LONG parish secretaries ANN-MAREE NICHOLLS SGS school principal Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time OUR DISCERNMENT Thank you to those of you who have written about the church. Your comments are most important in our discernment together. Let me make a few remarks by way of response to some of the issues raised. Occasionally I get the impression that some think this is about me and what I want. That is a mistake. I have been part of this parish now for six years, long enough, I thought, to say I belong. I too love this church building. I have a passion for the parish community and its future. My father’s funeral was celebrated here. This is the first place where I am parish priest and I hope to see out the rest of my ministry RESPONSORIAL PSALM: here at Sts Peter and Paul. I believe we can reflect together on who we are and how we can leave a worthy legacy for the future of Catholic Church in the Bulimba area. In you O Lord, I have found my peace. This work is not only important for us now, but is vital for future generations. Certainly there is uncertainty! Are our young people involved in the parish? Will GOSPEL ACCLAMATION: there be a priest to look after the community in ten or fifteen years? We rely on Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, what our parents and grandparents built for us. What will we leave for the future? alleluia! You have one Father, Now we are still in a position where we can set things up well for the next fifty your Father in heaven; you years. I believe we can do this. But will we still be able to do it in another decade? I have one teacher, the Lord think our centenary (in 2016) provides us with the occasion and the incentive. Jesus Christ, the Lord Jesus People are rightly concerned with cost. The Parish Finance Council is looking at Christ! Alleluia, alleluia, creative and ground-breaking ways to raise capital funds. If it works, we can do alleluia, alleluia! something. If it does not work, we cannot – we will just have to chip away at it bit by bit over time. It is as simple as that. Our planned giving is covering our running Malachi 1:14 – 2:2 8-10 costs, but we cannot contemplate major capital works. Nor can we saddle the next Thessalonians 2:7-9 generation with a huge debt, even if the diocese would let us! Matthew 23:1-12 To do nothing is also to make a decision. Personally I believe it would be to give up on our future. Considerable expense will be incurred just to preserve the fabric of the building: the brickwork needs repointing to make the building waterproof and stabilise the cornices; the roof will soon need replacing; the sound and electrical systems need replacing entirely; the disabled carparks need to be made level; the pews need refurbishing; the carpet is disintegrating and the paint is peeling. This is the time to consider how the design of the liturgical space can support our Please pray for our departed participation at Sunday Mass and the celebration of the other sacraments. loved ones, especially for Frank Hackett and Geraldine Some values we clearly need to preserve: Harris recently deceased and ♦ We need to start with a love and respect for our beautiful church and its history. also for Patricia Charlotte ♦ We need to enhance its beauty and the sense of the sacred, not destroy it. ♦ We need to base ourselves on solid liturgical principles, not on personal whim.
