Introduction to St Pauls

 

"the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together"

During Advent we anticipate a universal truth; we anticipate birth, the very activity of creation and as we approach Christmas we too engage in the activity of giving and receiving.

So we contemplate our place in the story and part in the unfolding of the nativity; in our contemplation, in our prayers, we seek to discover ourselves as part of one universal Divine narrative.

The “glory” shall be “revealed”, and the incarnation will affirm the truth of divinity in humanity. The reality of the Advent journey and the reality of the nativity are not to be found in the past, nor in ancient stories; rather, the reality is found, and realised, in the encounter.

Our contemplations might take us beyond the traditions of our childhood, however like the magi, we must bring our most precious gifts and be prepared to give them. It is not a solitary journey, however we do all have a part to play to ensure all people shall see it together

Sentence

Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. For the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all people shall see it together..

Blessing for Unity

May God, the one from whom on different paths All of us have come, To whom on different paths All of us are going, Make strong in our hearts what unites us. May God build bridges across all that divides us; May God make us, united, rejoice in our diversity. Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?

Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.

Community Precinct and the Hall

On behalf of the St Paul’s Council and community, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for the financial contribution from Lotterywest for the conservation work to our heritage listed community hall. Without this financial support from Lotterywest, we would not have had the capacity to undertake the required conservation work to ensure our facility remains a meeting place for so many different community groups.

St Paul’s is committed to growing community & sharing our facilities with the wider community and greatly appreciates the partnership with Lotterywest to assist us to continue to serve the community
