Message from Mums' Cottage: February 2019

February 06, 2019 Sr Helen Anne

Whatever you dream your future is, it cannot be equal to His dream for you. All your dreams so wild, so extravagant, are nothing as romantic or as splendid as god's design for you. Lay your own aside, leave yourself in his divine hands, listen to His voice with humility, earnestness and courage.

December 22, 2018 Fr Andrew Doohan

Another year has passed, and we could be forgiven for asking ourselves what if anything has changed since this time last year. There are still the scandals that scar our society and our Church; there are things that should have been done yet remain undone; there are still possibilities that have not been explored.
