The Good Life: An Introduction to Moral Theology

ON: Mondays 28th October - 2nd December
FROM: 10.00am - 12.30pm (6 sessions)
WITH: Mr Joe Tedesco
AT: Newman Siena Centre (Clune Lecture Theatre)

God wants us to lead a life that is good. But why would this be so? What does a good life even look life? Is it simply following the rules? What happens if I can’t follow all the rules? Is there a difference between good for the religious person and those who are not religious or are not sure about their faith? These are some of the questions that moral theology deals with and that we will explore in this course. What better way to prepare for Advent!

Matthew’s Genealogy: One Introductory Story of Jesus

ON: Tuesdays 5th November - 26th November
FROM: 10.00am - 12.30pm (4 sessions)
WITH: Sr Clare Sciesinski PVBM
AT: Newman Siena Centre (Clune Lecture Theatre)

Over four weeks, we will explore why Matthew thinks that Jesus’ birth/origin/genesis needs to be seen through the lens of a genealogy. We will see how a list of names helps us to understand who Jesus is, where he comes from, and what his purpose is. We will unpack Matthew’s story in the genealogy in the light of God’s saving presence in humanity’s history through the prophets, the kings and other very unexpected and often what we might classify as unacceptable, people.

Advent 2019 – Making our hearts, homes and community ready for Christ

ON: Thursdays 14th November - 5th December
FROM: 7.00pm - 9.00pm (4 sessions)
WITH: Mr Derek Boylen
AT: Ellenbrook Parish, cnr Coolamon Drive and Strathmore Parkway, Ellenbrook

Advent calls us to remember that the truth of the Incarnation was so profound that the early Church fell to her knees at these words: “and He was incarnate by the Holy Spirit, from the virgin Mary, and became man.” In the ordinary form of the Roman Rite, each week, we bow to these same words. These gestures acknowledge the profound mystery of the truth of the Incarnation. How does the infinite enter the finite? How does He, whom the very heavens cannot contain, enter the womb of Mary? These talks call us to embrace Advent as a special time for preparing our hearts, homes and communities to receive Christ. CEWA Ongoing Renewal: this course has been approved for Faith Formation.
