Australia Day – Mass at Newton @ 8am
Father, you reached out by the power of the Holy Spirit through Jesus your Son to show your love for all creation.
You invite everyone to share in your life made available to us in Jesus.
You established the Church to bring your good news to all people.
Let your Holy Spirit help us to be the presence of your saving love to all. May that same Spirit help us to proclaim your good news in a way that is meaningful to people and touches their hearts.
May we, like Mary, Help of Christians, have the courage of the cross, to fulfil the mission you gave us, no matter what the cost.
Sharing in his confidence and trust in you we ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
