Lourdes Seven Hills Young Adults Group Night

We invite young adults 18-39 and all 'young at heart' to come along to our young adults group nights which are on every 2nd Friday of the month. Our next meeting will be held on Friday, 10th of May 7-9:30pm in the Parish Meeting Room.

In this month of May, the month of Mother Mary we look at the example of a young woman, St Joan of Arc and how we can be leaders and examples of leadership in our communities and society. How it is worthwhile offering all up to God – the prayers, works and sufferings of every day. After all, we are mere servants, God’s instruments, doing God’s work, building God’s kingdom.

What is leadership and what qualities make a good leader? In the secular world, people speak of ambition to become a leader – if necessary, it’s ‘dog eat dog’ on the way to the top. Seeing leadership as a ‘calling’, or a vocation from God, is something very different. It has its roots in our baptismal calling.

Leadership is a charism – a gift given to some people by the Holy Spirit for the good of others and for the building up of the Body of Christ. When God grants us the gift of leadership, and calls us to use it, it is not for our own benefits or simply to satisfy some personal ambition. It is given to us to make a difference!

We welcome Thuy (Vivien) Nguyen from Sydney Alliance and people of all faiths especially our Muslim sisters and brothers who have invited us to celebrate Ramadan with them this month.

We will be exploring the theme of "Leadersheep!". All are welcome! Please bring in a plate to share. Please share and invite your friends!
