St. Mary’s Parish Seymour Mission Statement


We, the people of St. Mary’s Parish Seymour, live as a Catholic faith community called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

St. Mary’s Parish Seymour is dedicated to serving parishioners in this rural community of North Central Victoria with the spirit of the Gospel and guided by the Holy Spirit. Our mission is to foster a spiritual environment by providing a caring and supportive home for sacramental worship, together with family faith formation. Care is taken particularly with the pastoral care of the sick and elderly, the bereaved and needy.

We aim to fulfill this mission through the dedicated efforts of our entire parish family, united together by our faith and by providing the opportunity for Catholic Education through St. Mary’s College, thus enabling a spiritual renewal leading to the Kingdom of God.

CATECHISM CORNER

2 So that this call should resound throughout the world, Christ sent forth the apostles he had chosen, commissioning them to proclaim the gospel: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."4 Strengthened by this mission, the apostles "went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it."

Pope Saint Gregory the Great (Pont. 590-604)

Pope Saint Gregory the Great (Pont. 590-604)

It is very meet and right, with all the powers of heart and mind, and with the service of the lips, to praise the invisible God, the Father Almighty, and His only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who paid the debt of Adam for us to the Eternal Father, and effaced the bond of the ancient guilt by the Blood poured forth in loving kindness. For this is the Paschal festival in which you first did bring our fathers, the children of Israel, out of Egypt, and made them to pass over the Red Sea dry-shod. This, then, is the night which cleared away the darkness of sin by a pillar of radiance. This is the night throughout the world which now restores to grace and unites to holiness believers in Christ, separated from worldly vices and from the gloom of sin. This is the night in which Christ broke the bonds of death and ascended from the grave, the Conqueror. For to be born had been no blessing to us, unless we could have been redeemed. Oh, the wondrous condescension of your loving kindness towards us! Oh, the inestimable tenderness of your love! To redeem the servant, you gave up your Son. This holy night, then, puts to flight offenses, washes away sins, and restores innocence to the fallen, and joyousness to the sad. Oh, truly blessed night, which spoiled the Egyptians and enriched the Hebrews–the night in which Heaven and earth are reconciled! We pray therefore, Lord, that you would preserve your servants in the peaceful enjoyment of this Easter happiness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, now and forever. Amen.


Easter Message from Your Archbishop.

From Your Archbishop          Christ is alive; and he wants us to be alive. The Risen Lord, who will never abandon his People, is offering us the strength to set out on a new path with him. As shattered and as wounded as our local Church can seem, the Risen Lord, in his gloriously wounded body, is inviting us to share in his life and to walk with him. So today, with our wounds transfigured under the radiance of an Easter dawn, let us run with Mary Magdalene and with Peter the Apostle, to greet our future with Christ. We run with hope in our hearts. We run to tell others this Easter news. And we run because Christ is showing us the way. Keep running, because Christ is alive! He runs ahead, and beside us, all the way to the end.  For his complete letter see noticeboard.
