Monday December 1: (Morning and evening presentation)

“Making the best choices in my life in the light of faith”

One of the strongest elements within the Catholic tradition is the process of discerning the promptings of God in my daily life.  How can we practically apply the best of our Christian spirituality to the choices we make at home, work and the wider community?

Tuesday December 2:(Morning and evening presentation)

 “Jesus Christ for us and with us right here, right now”

Without Christ there is no Christianity, but how do we encounter a Christ who is not pious or fundamentalist? How has the media’s presentations of the story of Christ influenced out prayer and faith?

Wednesday December 3:(Morning, evening presentation)

“Liturgy: God’s great love meets our frailty”

Liturgy forms the landscape within which the Catholic Community finds a home. Yet it is increasingly a foreign land to our people, young and old. How do we reclaim and celebrate a liturgy that is hospitable, bold, inclusive and Catholic?
