St Mary’s parish is fortunate in having the equipment to enable us to use powerpoint presentations to assist us during Mass. The responsibility of putting together the powerpoint requires only limited computer skills but can be somewhat time consuming. This job is currently being done by Judith Morais.

To present the powerpoint during Mass we have several teams of computer operators. One person is rostered to each of the four Masses

It is preferable that each person be responsible for presenting the powerpoint at least once a month due to the ever changing needs of the parish, addition of prayers and playing of DVDs etc. Again, only limited computer skills are needed to do this task but a good knowledge of the order of the Mass is most beneficial.

As well as powerpoints for the weekend Masses, we assist with First Communion and Confirmation Masses, Jubilee school Masses and the occasional funeral.

Currently we have sufficient computer operators at all our Masses, and we are very grateful to all who assist the parish in this ministry.

Weekly Reflection

Doa Bunda Maria Indonesia
This week we celebrate Mary as Our Lady of Indonesia. Enclosed is a prayer to
Our Lady of Indonesia. Faith come to Indonesia through the early Portuguese
Christians and their deep celebration of their faith.
The Portuguese very early established churches in Malacca and the
“Spice Islands” – the Moluccas. Perhaps the most famous missionary
was not Portuguese, but Basque – St Francis Xavier.
With these first Christians came a deep devotion to Our Lady. But not long
after Xavier, the Dutch defeated the Portuguese and took their
territories in what is now Indonesia. They expelled the Catholic
missionaries and replaced them with Calvinists. Catholics struggles
under the Dutch and then the Muslim governments. Today there are over
eight million Catholics in Indonesia which makes it the second
largest Catholic community in East Asia and larger than Australia.
Faith in Indonesia has a particular flavour and expresses local culture. The
wonderful communities in Flores and the Moluccas have a different flavour
than Javanese Catholicism. Each is deeply faithful and expresses faith through
culture.

Prayer to Our Lady of Indonesia
Our Lady of Indonesia, God’s plan, and that of your Son Jesus Christ, have been
lovingly realised in and through you. Pray for us, the people
of Indonesia so that we may become good citizens of this land. Assist us in
reaching our life’s goals for a better future for our families.
Strengthen our faith, hope and love, so that we do not get carried away by the
lures of this world but stand firm in the teachings of your
Son Jesus. Transform us into witnesses for peace and justice, so that we may
attain the success and happiness promised by your son to those who believe in
Him.
Teach us to let go of all bitterness and divisions among us, so that
whoever joins our families and communities will experience the loving guidance
of the Holy Spirit. At the end of our lives bring us together again with you, in
communion with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

God Bless you all
