Becoming Catholic sets out to explain to parents the changes that have taken place in the celebration of the sacraments: • Why is everything different now? • What does it mean to be part of a Christian community?  ���  Why do we call Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist,  ‘the sacraments of Initiation’?  • What are the different ways of celebrating Reconciliation today?  •  How can parents help in the preparation of their children?  • What are the parts of the Mass and how do we participate? 

Reconciliation aims to support you as you help your child prepare to receive

following the Second Vatican Council. It is now seen, along with Baptism and Eucharist, as part of the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. Reception of the sacrament varies from diocese to diocese: some offer the sacrament together with First Eucharist, others separately at the end of primary school.

Confirmation is one of the sacraments that has received particular renewal

the sacrament of Reconciliation. Its main teaching is that the sacrament re-affirms the constant truth of God’s love and forgiveness for the times we fail and need forgiveness. Kathy horan provides a brief introduction to the Church’s teachings on reconciliation and explains how the celebration of the sacrament has changed since the Second Vatican Council. She uses brief reflections from Scripture to demonstrate that Jesus always proclaimed God’s readiness to forgive our wrongdoings no matter the circumstances. She offers ten themes that parents and children can explore together: 1. Created in God’s image 2. the Baptism of Jesus 3. Baptism: a new creation 4. We make choices 5. Brokenness 6. Jesus brings hope and healing 7. We celebrate forgiveness 8. reviewing the day 9. the shape of reconciliation A parent’s 10. Building bridges: making peace

In recent years there has been a renewed emphasis on understanding sacramental celebrations as parish events. Parents are engaged more significantly in the process of preparing their children to celebrate the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist. This collaboration has come about as a result of a rediscovery of how the sacraments were celebrated in the early Church. As a result, the Church once again speaks of the ‘process of initiation’ and sees Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist as steps along the path to becoming fully initiated members of a parish community and the Catholic Church. In some dioceses this has meant that Confirmation is now celebrated at the time of First Eucharist rather than at the end of primary school.

Confirmation is one of the sacraments that has received particular renewal following the Second Vatican Council. It is now seen, along with Baptism and Eucharist, as part of the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. Reception of the sacrament varies from diocese to diocese: some offer the sacrament together with First Eucharist, others separately at the end of primary school.

Becoming Catholic sets out to explain to parents the changes that have taken place in the celebration of the sacraments: • Why is everything different now? • What does it mean to be part of a Christian community?  •  Why do we call Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist,  ‘the sacraments of Initiation’?  • What are the different ways of celebrating Reconciliation today?  •  How can parents help in the preparation of their children?  • What are the parts of the Mass and how do we participate? 

Be c o m

In recent years there has been a renewed emphasis on understanding sacramental celebrations as parish events. Parents are engaged more significantly in the process of preparing their children to celebrate the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist. This collaboration has come about as a result of a rediscovery of how the sacraments were celebrated in the early Church. As a result, the Church once again speaks of the ‘process of initiation’ and sees Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist as steps along the path to becoming fully initiated members of a parish community and the Catholic Church. In some dioceses this has meant that Confirmation is now celebrated at the time of First Eucharist rather than at the end of primary school.

Fingers are often pointed at Ebony. Sometimes the people behind the fingers say things too. They say mean things, things she doesn’t always understand, things about who she is and what she is. She doesn’t always understand, but she knows what they mean. How come they get to say these things? How come they have the power to point fingers? And there’s trouble in her family, things are falling apart; and there’s always a new school and a new crowd of kids to deal with.

or Catholics the celebration of the Mass is central to the expression of their faith. It is celebrated thousands of times a day in many places, in many languages, by many, many people and has been celebrated every day for centuries. It has many names and a variety of cultural guises. It means different things to different people. “For some it is a meal. For some it is a sacrifice. For some it is a ritual act, sacred and set apart. Others like to emphasise the community aspect – the community gathering together, very conscious of one another. For some it is a deeply personal prayer. For others it is a sacramental celebration embracing the entire world. For some its very essence is expressed in the coming together (the communion) of those present. For others, it is the moment to celebrate the sacredness of life in joy and gratitude. For some worshippers it is a celebration of a reconciliation which forgives and unites. For others, unity and reconciliation are pre-requisites for its proper celebration. Some celebrate it once a year. Others celebrate it four times a year. Some celebrate it every Sunday and for others it is a daily event of thanksgiving and grace.” (From the Introduction) In A Friendly Guide to the Mass Tony Doherty opens up the treasures of the Mass and through story, humour, history and colourful imagery he offers us an insight into the heart of this ritual which is at

Here we are at the heart of prayer as it is understood within the Catholic Tradition. It is the way we will speak of prayer throughout this book – being present to the Presence. Our focus will therefore be primarily on attitudes and dispositions rather than specific acts and rituals. It is the prayerful person we are most interested in, rather than the person who says prayers, the prayerful life rather than the life that contains times of prayer.”

When the bishops of the Catholic world gathered in Rome in 1962 for the Second Vatican Council, they initiated a process of change which would restyle the way Catholics worshipped and celebrated liturgy.

A FRIENDLY GUIDE TO In the style which is typical of the other books in the Friendly Guide series, Vodola explains, in easy terms, the history of change that was already happening in the Church prior to Pope John XXIII initiating the Council and how he became focussed on the process of modernisation early in the 20th Century. Vodola offers an easyto-understand explanation of the Second Vatican Council, the changes and what it means for us today in the fifty years since the Council was convened.

ne of Australia's well-respected scripture theologians, Mary L. Coloe, brings the world of the gospels to life in this addition to the Friendly Guide series of books. In this guide, Coloe explains how John has selected and shaped this material differently: where the Synoptic Gospels work from a theological framework of sin and atonement, John speaks of life and eternity life. This is an alternative approach to the meaning of Jesus’ life, death and rising. Coloe explores John’s positive message that affirms life, and speaks to the heart of human desires today.

The earliest and shortest of the four Gospels, Mark is a challenging portrait of Jesus as a healer and miracle worker, and as the Christ, Son of Man and Son of God. Mark’s Gospel is explored in some detail, dealing with the structure of the whole narrative and examining specific passages more closely.

Teaching Social Justice Ecological conversion is the radical change of mind and heart that leads to a deeper love and respect for all creatures as having their own integrity before God: it involves change to a sustainable lifestyle, to sustainable patterns of production and consumption and to sustainable economic and political choices.

Bruce Duncan

In this book Denis Edwards encourages Christians to wholeheartedly embrace ecological conversion and to connect with people around the globe in their deepening commitment to the survival of life on Earth.

Father Denis’s book is a wonderful read for anyone with an interest in exploring theology and our home, planet Earth. In this book Denis gives us the fundamentals of ecological theology and he has done this all with great skill. The text is clear, accessible and compelling. His treatment of Jesus and the Natural World is of particular importance in our times as we struggle to come to terms with our responsibilities towards the Earth. Not only is this book suited to the individual reader, it is especially attractive as a genuine tool for learning in a classroom setting or adult study group owing to its many questions for reflection and Denis’s insightful answers. We are blessed to have the fundamentals of ecological theology offered to us so clearly today.

Fr Denis Edwards is associate professor of theology at Flinders University and teaches for the Catholic Theological College in Adelaide. He has written extensively on the relationship between theology and science subjects.

Enrich your student’s understanding of how biblical and Catholic traditions may be applied to social justice issues: from climate change to economic crises to the plight of Australia’s indigenous peoples. A must read for anyone interested in a fairer world.

and the

DEnis EDwARDs

Edwards shows that stewardship is pivotal in the Christian message, and that the process of conversion includes a responsibility that all creation is a precious gift that is to be loved, respected and protected. The evergrowing movement of people who are connected in a deepening commitment to the good of the community of life on Earth is a strengthening force that includes people living in large cities, country towns and on the land, farmers, artists, school children, scientists, industrialists, politicians and religious leaders.

For Christians, the deepest reason for this conversion is that we see the Earth and all its creatures as God’s good creation, the creation that God radically embraces in the incarnation of the Word made flesh. Because of this, in 2001, Pope John Paul II stressed the importance of the change of mind and of life that he called ‘ecological conversion’. After speaking of the way humans have devastated so much of the natural world, he continued: ‘We must therefore encourage and support the “ecological conversion” which in recent decades has made humanity more sensitive to the catastrophe to which it has been heading’.

Discover transformational Catholic leadership Take your Catholic school leadership to the next level with this cutting-edge, thought-provoking series—the Mission and Education series, created in partnership with The Broken Bay Institute. Written for everyone engaged in Catholic education, the Mission and Education series explains the extraordinary potential Catholic schools have for an evangelising mission. Explore this potential with highly-acclaimed Australian Catholic educators and authors, Jim and Therese D’Orsa.

Ted Laxton

” in this second volume of the mission and Education series two australian Catholic educators face squarely the issue of the Catholicity of the entire formal curriculum – what is involved, and why it is a vital matter for the consideration of all those committed to the education of young people in Catholic schools.

If Catholic schools and colleges are to preserve their true mission and their religious integrity in the face of secularism and the colonising power of ‘national economic requirements’, then they must possess a distinctive cultural heart which is an authentic Catholic Curriculum. Drawing upon the wisdom of theology, missiology, sociology, history, philosophy and anthropology, the authors of this impressive text have produced a major educational resource to show Catholic educators how this could be achieved.

‘At a time when government funding policies are causing Catholic education systems and school leaders to focus on the future economic prospects for Catholic schooling across Australia, Jim and Therese D’Orsa have written a book that represents the canary in the coal mine. In what they refer to as this liminal era, Catholic schooling faces new and serious risks to the integrity of its mission. This is a challenge that must engage all leaders in Catholic education if our schools are to be places where Jesus’ message of the Kingdom is a lived reality, not a history lesson. What is required is leaders who are skilled not only in strategic and operational leadership but also in mission leadership: which is the focus of this outstanding book. Mission leadership utilizes theological reflection to enhance mission thinking which assists Catholic school leaders to respond to the multi-dimensional challenges of secularisation. The book is both sophisticated and practical, which has great appeal for Catholic school and system leaders who are seeking imaginative and thought-provoking ways to develop a sure-footedness in their leadership in these uncertain times. This is certainly a book for the times and all those who treasure the mission that engages the hearts and minds of Catholic educators/leaders in our efforts to create the Kingdom spaces which transform death-dealing post-modern culture into life-giving God-giftedness.’

a mission to the heart of Young People

Mission Theology for Catholic Educators

This is a landmark publication, of great value, not only to educators in Australia, but also internationally.

‘In Leading for Mission: Integrating Life, Culture and Faith in Catholic Education, Jim and Therese D’Orsa, together with the other contributors, have given us a sterling account of a striking story, one  of a never-ending journey of leadership for mission and vision. The reflection on the terrain which the Church, and particularly its educational mission, has traversed in this country leaves no room for complacency. The assessment of where we are now impels us to continually revise, renew and amend our mission and our vision. This is because ours is a mission never finally achieved, but always remains the goal of pilgrimage, and of a vision both Spirit-filled and open to the realities of the world. Insightful, challenging, and constructive, this book is a “must-read” for those involved in today’s Church—especially for its leaders—and those responsible for the ever-adapting processes of Catholic education.’

Jim & Therese D’Orsa

An excellent book that combines intricate knowledge and understanding of updated curriculum thinking with piercing insight into the challenges implied by such thinking for Catholic schools. The book challenges a range of facile approaches to being a Catholic school in a public setting, including that the Catholic school can ignore its wider public context or that being Catholic means simply adding a layer of RE to an essentially public enterprise. The book goes to the heart of the justification of Catholic schooling by illustrating a range of differences that might be notable in a distinctively Catholic Curriculum. In a day and age of much talk about Catholicity and Catholic Identity, the D’Orsas make it plain that there is no simple formula, nor can it ever be viable that there is only one way of being Catholic. ‘Catholic Curriculum’ is a complex term that can only be meaningfully applied in the real context of a multitude of societal influences and educational stakeholders. The book’s stated task is to reframe the conversation around Catholic Curriculum, a goal well achieved in my view

leading for mission: integrating life, Culture and faith ” in Catholic education is the third volume of the mission and education series. it is designed to provide leaders in today’s Church with the capacity to confidently match the strategic and operational elements of their leadership with a deep and contemporary commitment to mission.

Ideal for teacher retreats and staff meetings Faith, Hope, and a Bird Called George A Spiritual Fable Michael Morwood

RRP $22.95 Sophia $18.36 9781594712753

n this charming and deeply spiritual tale, a woman named Hope explores many of life’s most profound questions—surprisingly assisted by her cat Faith and her bird George. These three talk about God’s presence and about suffering and death and the meaning of life. They talk about a prayerful relationship with God, “the presence all around us holding everything together”. Together they tackle some very tough questions, and through this sharing and reflection, Hope gains a new and deeper understanding of Jesus, God, faith, and religion. Through this deceptively simple book, Morwood offers an invitation to all believers to reflect, pray, discuss, and grow so that they too might experience God, Jesus, and the Spirit more deeply and profoundly.

Resources for Year A – Matthew ary Coloe’s contemporary Australian gospel reflections offer readers thoughtful introductions to the Sunday gospels of the liturgical year. Matthew is the focus of year A. He was writing for a Jewish community split between the Pharisees who focused on the old Jewish Law, and the third generation of Jesus’ followers. This Christian community was also opening out to the Gentiles. Matthew shows that Jesus is ‘God with us’, ‘Emmanuel’. At a time when our world is beset with conflict, Jesus’ promise, ‘I will be with you always’ is the Good News we need to hear. This is an excellent resource for personal use or for groups in schools and parishes.

Dorothy A. Lee

Prepare yourself for this liturgical year by delving deeper into the Gospel of Matthew with this engaging, easy-to-read resource. Written with the layperson in mind, A Friendly Guide to Matthew brings Matthew’s Gospel to life and paints a vivid picture of Jesus as divine but undeniably human.
