Are we being a people and community that radically include and welcome those that society has outcast and excluded. Jesus turns all social expectations on their head. Things that seemed normal and expected were all questioned and reviewed under the gaze of His love.
This weekend we celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the first Mass in the Diocese of Wollongong, when Fr John Joseph Therry celebrated Mass outdoors with about 30 people on Sunday 1 September 2022. A special concelebrated Mass under the school COLA with Bishop Brian will replace all Sunday Masses on 28 August 2022. It will be followed by a multicultural fiesta.
