    Read 1 Timothy 1.12-17, The Message I’m so grateful to Christ Jesus for making me adequate to do this work. He went out on a limb, you know, in trusting me with this ministry. The only credentials I brought to it were invective and witch hunts and arrogance. But I was treated mercifully because I didn’t know what I was doing—didn’t know Who I was doing it against! Grace mixed with faith and love poured over me and into me. And all because of Jesus. Here’s a word you can take to heart and depend on: Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. I’m proof—Public Sinner Number One—of someone who could never have made it apart from sheer mercy. And now he shows me off—evidence of his endless patience—to those who are right on the edge of trusting him forever. Paul is thankful because he considers himself 'Public Sinner Number One' and yet God has shown him great kindness by first saving him and then sending him as God's helper and representative to God's people. Why are you thankful today? How can you show your thankfulness to someone you know and love? How can you show thankfulness to God? Here are a few suggestions ...

Is there something we can do to encourage them Try starting a Gratitude Journal. It's hard to be positive at the moment when so many things around us are not as they could be. Set time aside each day to make a list of what you are thankful for. Start with the tiniest details, and write down even just one thing. On days when you’re feeling empty – or just wanting an excuse to smile – go back and read some of your list. Ann Voskamp says it best: “When I give thanks for the seemingly microscopic, I make a place for God to grow within me.” Write a prayer of thanks to God today. Try to be as specific as possible.

  • Pastoral Statement regarding #BlackLivesMatter Rally and Covid-19

    Australia’s first peoples, Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders, represent the oldest living continuing culture in the world. And yet, tragically, racial tensions, inequalities and systematic injustice are realities we have lived with for too long. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander imprisonment rate is 17 times the national average, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people account for almost 30% of those in prison and there have been far too many deaths in custody. The Anglican community of St Catharine’s Caulfield South stand against racism in any form, anywhere. We believe that black lives matter. We pray that the attention surrounding deaths in custody will lead to systemic change, both in America, here in Australia and around the world. We stand with Christians around the world condemning violence and persecution. Attending the #BlackLivesMatter rally in Melbourne on Saturday 6 June posed an ethical dilemma for many Melburnians yesterday, not least of which some members of our Church community. I sympathise with the complexity of this decision in a Covid-19 environment. However we remain committed to the health and safety of all of our members which includes complying with the current Covid-19 restrictions. While the issue of reconciliation and an end to injustice for Indigenous Australians is one that we are rightly passionate about and comitted to, there is also the duty of care for ourselves, our families and communities in relation to Covid-19. I have today communicated with the members of our Church community who attended the rally, or who have come into contact with anyone who attended the rally, they have agreed to comply with one of the following options : Received a negative Covid-19 test result, or Voluntarily quarantine themselves for 14 consecutive days. This advice is consistent with the Chief Medical Officer and the State and Federal governments. If anyone has any concerns in relation to issue, please contact the Lead Pastor directly on 0406 400 338. Adam Cetrangolo Lead Pastor

Then we will stay on in the hall for our meeting which will incorporate a message, time of worship, prayer and communion as well as all the formalities of the Annual Meeting. Typically the Annual Meeting receives formal reports from the Treasurer, Churchwardens and Lead Pastor as well as other reports as appropriate. At St Cath's, these additional reports tend to take the form of testimonies of the good work that God has done in the past year. The Electoral Roll Every Anglican Church in Melbourne has an Electoral Roll which is reviewed prior to the Annual Meeting. It is desirable that the Electoral Roll reflect the real regular attendees of the Church. If you are new in the past year or unsure whether you are on the Electoral Roll.
