For some, this time of physical isolation has sparked an interest in online courses and further learning. Recently, Catholic Theological College (CTC) invited people to a virtual open day, providing the community with a glimpse into the College’s facilities, courses and the 130,000 items that make up its library collection. The Master of CTC, Rev. Dr Kevin Lenehan, says the move to an online delivery of courses at the beginning of semester one was perhaps the greatest transition the College has had to undergo. 'It’s been a time of great transition for our College community, to move all of our courses and programs from a face-to-face mode to an online and remote learning mode. ... Our goal is to ensure that our students can progress and successfully complete their study and learning into semester two and into next year.'

Homily: 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)
I’m old enough now to be able to remember the annual list of the wealthiest Australians was measured in the millions. These days a new millionaire barely raises an eyebrow; it's the list of multi billionaires that counts. Given these sorts of numbers, we are hardly going to get excited over the worth of a couple of hundred sparrows. The measure of worth in Jesus’ day is certainly not today’s measure.

ACU to host online series on "Liturgical Inculturation"

Friday 26 June 2020

Sharon Boyd, ACU Centre for Liturgy 
“I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.” This is what we pray together at Mass when we recite the Nicene Creed. Catholic means “universal”. As we heard during the Pentecost readings several weeks ago, “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability” (Acts 2:4). As a Church that is always on mission, our worship — our liturgy — lends itself to be shaped to ensure that it speaks of the transcendent to the local population in a meaningful way; this means that it embraces and is transformed by culture.

The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is a one-night event over one of the longest and coldest nights of the year. Hundreds of CEOs, business owners as well as community and government leaders sleep outdoors to raise funds and support the many Australians who are experiencing homelessness and people at risk of homelessness. Participating in his first Vinnies CEO sleepout, Archbishop Peter A Comensoli said, "It's a little bit of discomfort for a good bit of awareness."
