Introduction to St Pauls

Who do you say that I am?”

Jesus poses a simple and seemingly innocent question to the disciples, and so a question we each might consider for ourselves. And as we read the narrative we discover what an important question this is, for when the answer is found within himself, Peter receives the keys of the kingdom of heaven.

The gospel Matthew 15: 21-28 gives us a question that we each (and all) are encouraged to grapple with; and we might also appreciate that some of the orthodox ‘answers’ to this question are clearly unsatisfactory, for they do not come with the gift of the ‘keys’. “Who do you say that I am?” is a question that will lead us to question our ‘knowing’ Christ and our very sense of who we are; at the same time it is a question that empowers us to seek the keys of the kingdom of heaven. The empowerment of the individual is very much illustrated in the first reading, where a Levite woman overcomes the might of Egypt’s new king.

From Quantum Collects, Peter Humphris

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

This week's Newletter

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
