The Cathedral Youth Ministry Team presents....
"Just as the branch cannot bear fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine,neither can you unless you abide in me." John 15:4
THE VINE program provides a monthly opportunity for young Catholics to learn, discuss, pray, and spend time together.
THE VINE's program will kick-off in this Year of Grace, with an insightful presentation by Dr Ray Campbell on the topic ‘Sexuality: A Catholic Perspective’.
There will also be time for discussion and an opportunity for fellowship with other young people from across Brisbane.
Write these details in your diary now!

Missionaries of Charity (Mother Teresa's order) Soup Kitchen
Due to the MC Sisters' recent move (last week) a health inspection has not been carried out on their kitchen. Until the inspection occurs the sisters are supplying their clients with takeaway meals, instead of the usual sit down meal.
Service begins at 10.30am (you are asked to please arrive by 9am to prepare for service)
The next two dates are
- Saturday 26 May (takeaway meal)
- Saturday 2 June (takeaway meal)
Throughout June and July the sisters will be away on retreat and will not open the Soup Kitchen again until August.
By volunteering to assist the MC Sisters and their soup kitchen clients you are making a huge difference to many lives.

Early-bird registration is now open for this year's Australian Catholic Students Association (ACSA) Conference.
It'll be held from 6th-8th July in Melbourne.
It's three days of great speakers and socialising topped off with a State of Origin football game (which Queensland always wins, duh) and the Mary MacKillop Ball (shine up those dancing shoes).
For more info on the conference itself and what the program is shaping up to be, head to the ACSA Website. Also, check out their event page on Facebook.
Closer to the date, like last year, we'll likely be coordinating flights etc. so stay tuned for more details.

May is the month we honour Mary. This month at Faith on Tap, we have Army Captain Joseph Moloney speaking about Our Lady.http://www.facebook.com/events/145591412232865/
Do Catholics worship Mary?
Did Our Lady have children after Jesus?
Which apparitions of Our Lady are approved by the Church?
Which very popular apparititions are NOT approved by the Church and why?
What does Eve, Ruth and Esther have to do with Mary?
Why is Our Lady called "The Ark of the New Covenant?"
Why did Luther and Calvin even believe that Our Lady is a perpetual virgin?
This talk aims to clear up some of the confusion surrounding Our Lady. Come along to The Pineapple and find out what the Catholic Church teaches about Our Lady and the important role she plays in our salvation as we draw on the biblical proof and the traditions of the Church to explore the Truth and dispel the lies about Our Lady, Queen of Heaven.
We also have some special guests from Sydney speaking about The Legion of Mary.
Adoration, Benediction and Confession will be available from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at St. Joseph's Kangaroo Point with FoT chaplain Fr. Bavin Clarke.
The church is accessible from Anglesey Street and it's only 400 metres from the Pineapple!
From 6:30pm - 7:30pm the special $10 FoT menu will be available in The Park bar as usual and the talk will begin at 7:30pm with a Q&A to follow.
So join us at the Pineapple on Monday the 14th of May for a great night out.
Faith on Tap is strictly for those between 18-35 years*
*(Priests and Religious of all ages are welcome)
We will be meeting at the UQ Lakes bus station at 6 p.m. and taking a bus (109/209/29) to the Gabba. It's ok if you arrive at the bus-stop a little after 6, or if you can only make it for the talk at 7.30, that's fine too. Please rsvp on the Newman Facebook Group so we know to look out for you.
God has created me to do him some definite service; he has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another. I have my mission — I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I have a part in a great work; I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
— Bl John Henry Cardinal Newman

“Dear Lord, help me to spread thy fragrance everywhere I go.
Flood my soul with Thy spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine.
Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Thy presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me but only Thee O Lord!
Stay with me, and then I shall begin to shine as Thou shinest; so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light O Lord will be all from Thee; none of it will be mine;
It will be Thou, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise Thee in the way Thou dost love best, by shining on those around me.
Let me preach Thee without preaching, not by words but by my example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to Thee.”
—Bl John Henry Cardinal Newman
