The 2023-2024 Perth Archdiocesan Assembly, continued Fr Vincent, is the first of its kind for the Archdiocese and was announced Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB in April 2023, and launched on Trinity Sunday 4 June 2023 at St Mary’s Cathedral.
Aquinas College Schola Cantorum (School Choir), directed by Hugh Lyndon performed at the 9.30am Mass on 18 June, the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to officially launch the new organ.
Under the stewardship of Director, Donella Brown, the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry has been proactive in ensuring Safeguarding is embedded within the work of the Agency.
The convening of the Diocesan Assembly, said Archbishop Costelloe, is a relatively modest initiative, but it is designed to set a pattern for ongoing consultation and discernment. The First Archdiocesan Assembly is set to be launched Sunday 4 June at St Mary’s Cathedral.
“God really is as close to us, and as compassionate and merciful towards us, and as loving, as Jesus proclaimed him to be,” Perth Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB has said, speaking during his homilies for Easter at St Mary’s Cathedral.
Religious life, said Geraldton Emeritus Bishop Bianchini, is very similar to the actions of Mary and Joseph who presented the baby Jesus in the temple.
In the liturgical celebration of the sacraments, important stages of life are made holy, said Episcopal Vicar for Education and Faith Formation, the Very Rev Fr Vincent Glynn.
Speaking in the first of four videos for the recently launched Liturgical Formation and Renewal Program, Fr Vincent continued by saying that baptism sanctifies our human life, marriage sanctifies our love for another, the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick allows us to experience God entering into our suffering and the Eucharist feeds us and nourishes us for this life and eternal life.

In launching a new program of Liturgical Formation and Renewal this week, Perth Archbishop Timothy Costelloe SDB says it is important the Perth Catholic community reflect on what it means to be a Christ-centred Church that is prayerful and Eucharistic.
Over the next four weeks, video messages highlighting an understanding of Sacramentality, Why we Gather to celebrate Liturgy, Signs and Symbols in the Liturgy and What is Liturgy, will be shown in our parish communities.
Speaking on the occasion of the 2023 Beginning of the Year Mass for Catholic Education, Auxiliary Bishop Don Sproxton told of the work of St John Bosco, highlighting that those present are called to help children of all abilities and backgrounds, to embark on the pathway of education, on the pathway to personal growth, to be equipped to take their place creatively in society.
