Saturday Sessions – St Joseph: The One Who Chooses

7 May 2021


Saturday Sessions is an initiative of the Diocese of Parramatta held every Saturday and Monday via Zoom. All members of our Diocese and friends are welcome to attend.

The Saturday Session below was held by the Diocese on 20 and 22 March 2021. If you missed it, we invite you to listen to the recording and consider the discussion questions in your own time. You may even wish to organise your friends or parish group to watch and discuss the topic at a time convenient to you.

In this session, the Saturday Sessions community reflect on St Joseph in light of the Year of St Joseph announced by Pope Francis.

The reflection, read by Catherine Bourne from the Diocese of Parramatta, was written by Sr Colleen O’Sullivan, a Sister of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart. Sr Colleen is an experienced facilitator with a rich depth and understanding of spirituality and has presented extensively on St Mary of the Cross MacKillop.

“Perhaps in our unprecedented times, Joseph can show us how to make choices that lead to life and wholeness for ourselves and for those to whom we come in contact,” Sr Colleen says.

Saturday Sessions invites participants to watch a pre-recorded presentation in their own time or at a set time prior to discussion. A designated hour is set for a period of discussion about the presentation in small groups via an online video conferencing platform.

Sessions are held every Saturday at 9.15am and then repeated on Monday nights at 7.15pm. Check out the Diocesan Facebook page for weekly updates on the topic of the week.

The video, part of the Saturday Sessions series, alongside videos and other prayer resources are available on The Well, the popular video streaming site of the Diocese of Parramatta.
