Living a Contemporary Catholic Life of Faith, Hope and Love

A time for us to reflect on where we have been, where we are and where we are going.

Facilitated by Rev. Dr Richard Leonard SJ

15th – 17th March at Sacred Heart Church, 50 Fairway Dr, Clear Island Waters 4226.

There will be morning sessions at 9:30 – 10:45am and evening sessions at 7:00 – 8:15pm.

Monday 15th March: Going out to the world: we need all the help we can get

One of the richest things Catholics take the world is our tradition. Some people think Catholic Tradition is a static bloc of doctrines that must be imparted to our young. By looking at Mary, the Mother of Jesus we will see how our tradition is rich and responsive to the needs of today.

Tuesday 16th March: Nine steps to making better choices for my life

On the strongest elements within the Catholic tradition is the process of discerning the promptings of God in my daily life.  How can we practically apply the best of our Christian spirituality to the choices we make at home, work and the wider community?

Wednesday 17th March: Where the Hell is God? Holding to Faith through the Tough Times

Our faith in God is easier when everything is going well. But what about the times in our lives when it is challenged, undermined and threatened by the things that happen to us, or those we love? This critical session will help out words around how we can hold to a God who walks with us in the “valley of tears”?


Rev Dr Richard Leonard SJ will also preside over the weekend masses at Sacred Heart for the 13th and 14th of March.


All are welcome, but bookings are required.

A time of grace

    Loved Richard’s passion for his vocation and missionary role. His personal experiences and reflections on his many God encounters were indeed a source of inspiration.
    Perhaps if and when he comes again he might like to address the challenging subject of how we reach out to the lapsed, the fallen and our separated brethren in an increasingly secular world. As a parent of 5, I feel that I may have failed in my duty, as only one daughter is a regular church goer and then to a protestant denomination. Since being an RE teacher at public schools nearly 10 years ago, I have embraced the subject of online apologetics. More than of passing interesting is the number of high profile, eminent theologians who have converted to Catholicism like ex evangelical Baptist/Presbyterian Steve Ray, Scott Hahn, Jimmy Akin and Trent Horn (all authors of many books). Their many lectures and discussions are also available on YT and other social media.
