WELCOME

 

St Monica’s Catholic Parish is home to the local Catholic faith community in North Parramatta, as well as the Chinese Chaplaincy in Parramatta. Our mission is to build up an active parish community with the Eucharist as the centre, foster deeper prayer and spirituality and reach out as a witnessing community.

Whether you're new to the area, interested in finding out more about our faith, or already a member of our parish community, we welcome you, and invite you to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

SUNDAY READINGS

FIRST READING

A reading from the book of Isaiah Is 50: 4-7 The Lord has given me
a disciple’s tongue.
So that I may know how to reply to the wearied he provides me with speech.
Each morning he wakes me to hear,
to listen like a disciple.
The Lord has opened my ear.
For my part, I made no resistance,
neither did I turn away.
I offered my back to those who struck me,
my cheeks to those who tore at my beard;
I did not cover my face
against insult and spittle.
The Lord comes to my help,
so that I am untouched by the insults.
So, too, I set my face like flint;
I know I shall not be shamed.

SECOND READING

A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Philippians - Phil 2: 6-11
His state was divine, yet Christ Jesus did not cling to his equality with God but emptied himself to assume the condition of a slave, and became as men are, and being as all men are, he was humbler yet, even to accepting death, death on a cross.
But God raised him high and gave him the name which is above all other names so that all beings
in the heavens, on earth and in the underworld, should bend the knee at the name of Jesus and that every tongue should acclaim Jesus Christ as Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

GOSPEL

The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke Lk 22:14—23:56
