Isaiah Mary John
We hear from three very different characters in today’s readings and
perhaps each one has an echo within ourselves.
Isaiah is the voice of vision, looking beyond the everyday into a reality that is much more. It is not a voice of hope; it is more: an intentional seeking of that which reflects the divine abundance, the very gift of life.
Mary, the bearer of God, is the voice of affirmation; a committed ‘yes’ to the Divine vision and this opens the place from where our soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord.
John, is the voice of seeking, of wanting to know the reality of Christ; and he receives a response that can illuminate our doubts. For the answer is not in words but rather in the actions that show our true Christ-likeness.
"The eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy.”

Do you know we use our Community Hall, kitchen and other facilities for our celebrations and weekly and monthlyactivities, and that many other groups in our community use it as well?
Our commitment to community is given a ‘real’ expression in practical terms through continuing to maintain a precinct that welcomes all, especially those service groups that could not otherwise operate.
On behalf of the St Paul’s Council and community, we wish to express our sincere appreciation for the financial contribution from Lotterywest for the conservation work to our heritage listed community hall. Without this financial support from Lotterywest, we would not have had the capacity to undertake the required conservation work to ensure our facility remains a meeting place for so many different community groups.
St Paul’s is committed to growing community & sharing our facilities with the wider community and greatly appreciates the partnership with Lotterywest to assist us to continue to serve the community

Emmanuel, Gift of abundant Life
We are renewed in Divine Love
And we rejoice and blossom as we reflect your Glory.
In Christ is revealed our strength and our song
and in our being together we find our divine voice,
a harmony of love that dispels every fear
and that proclaims to all that the Lord is near.
Why come to church?
There are many and varied reasons that bring us here Sunday by Sunday: our personal journey and our innate desire for ‘community’ being just two.
We also enter into a ‘conversation’ that takes us beyond the everyday, a dialogue with and between ourselves and our calling into full humanity. And we come to encounter the Divine as we consume the sacraments, a process that mirrors our desire to be consumed by love’s Divine fire.
