St Mary’s in Exile is a community of diverse people who come together in the light of the Christian mystery to act justly and give priority to those marginalised in our society
We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land where we are now gathered and recognise that it continues to be sacred to them.
Healing Country – July 18 Liturgy
In our liturgy we will be listening to the homily that Fr Frank Brennan SJ gave at the start of NAIDOC week. Reflecting on the focus for the week of ‘Heal Country’ he states that “There’ll be no healing of the country, there’ll be no constitutional recognition, and there’ll be no truth telling unless more of us hear the same call that Jesus heard and that is, “The spirit came into me and made me stand up.”
25 Years of Micah
Karyn Walsh will be giving commentary on a video celebrating the 25 year history of Micah Projects. For over 25 years we at SMX have had a very proud relationship with Micah Projects. This weekend we celebrate something of this pride and remember some of the great work that has been done.
World Environment Day 2021
Our liturgy will be focusing on the importance of each of us doing something to address the climate crisis. We will be encouraging people to allow the emotion of love to be the driving force to enable us to hang in there despite our collective dismal attempts to really address this crisis. Homily by Terry Fitzpatrick.
