We believe that God created each one of us out of love. This love is made real in the person of Jesus Christ, born 2000 years ago in Palestine. His violent death devastated his disciples. His resurrection empowered his followers through the gift of the Holy Spirit, giving them hope beyond their wildest dreams that has infused our world ever since.
Legislation allowing certain terminally ill people to take their own lives under clinical supervision has now been passed in NSW. As Catholics we cherish and celebrate life at all its stages.
The Diocese of Lismore suffered the worst floods in living memory in February 2022, with a second major flood just a month later. Bishop Greg Homeming immediately launched a flood appeal to assist those who have lost everything.
