Go to

The Catholic Diocese of Parramatta has launched a dedicated webspace - - to celebrate the Year of Grace (Pentecost 2012 to Pentecost 2013).

The Catholic Bishops of Australia have invited us all to celebrate the Year of Grace to commit ourselves to 'start afresh from Christ', as did the disciples at the first Pentecost.

The Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Anthony Fisher OP, said the Year of Grace encourages us to deepen our unity through prayer, listening to Sacred Scripture and focussing on encountering and responding to Jesus Christ in our daily lives.

"During this Year of Grace we want to foster a relationship with Jesus Christ and not just know about Jesus," Bishop Anthony said. will be the online home of the Year of Grace for the Catholic Diocese of Parramatta.

The webspace aims to provide Parishes and Schools within the Diocese with ideas and inspiration for celebrating the Year of Grace and reflecting on the grace we receive in our daily lives.

Online resources include a Message from Bishop Anthony, A Prayer Booklet, a Kit for Parishes, Educational Resources for Schools, videos and a host of supporting material for download.
