The Southern Star - Our newsletter is now available online!

Alleluia, Christ is Risen! Happy and blessed Eastertide!

"Easter is both a culmination and initiation. For this year Lent is done, "the rain is over and gone," we have finished for the time being our re-living of Passiontide and are now concerned with Christ's glory and triumph; but they in their turn lead on to something further: the pattern of sacrifice is not completed until the divine life is brought to those who offer it; passion and death and glory all lead on to the coming of the Spirit, to the pentecostal fire."
- The Son's Course, by Fr Gerald Vann, O.P.


"If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world on fire."
-- St Catherine of Siena
