REAL    help needed Urgently !!!

Chaplaincy funding is now for ONE day a week only.

The need and desire in the schools is for this ministry to continue to grow.

We have indicated to our Teacher/Chaplains we may need to cut one a day a week from each at the end of Term 2.

Additional local funding can avert this; so we make this appeal now.

Your prayers, promotion and support is appreciated.

Donations to REAL Inc. P.O. Box 7021, Lismore Heights 2480.

We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.


O God,

who in smoke and fire upon Mount Sinai

gave the law to Moses,

and who revealed the new covenant in the fire of the Spirit:

grant, we pray,

that, kindled by that same Spirit

which you poured forth upon your apostles,

we may fulfil with joy your commandment of love.

We ask through Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen.


A Prayer for Choosing a new Rector

Bountiful God,

give to this parish a faithful pastor

who will faithfully speak your word

and minister your sacraments;

an encourager who will equip your people for ministry

and enable us to fulfil our calling.

Give to those who will choose, wisdom,

discernment and patience,

and to us give warm and generous hearts,

for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen
