We are a Eucharistic family; united, inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit, seeking the joy and fulfilment of Christ in building the Kingdom of God.
Linmeyer Catholic Community Parish established 2012
Who we are: A Eucharistic family…
It is through the celebration of the Eucharist (the source and summit of the Christian life – Lumen Gentium [Vatican II]) that we are formed into the Church, the People of God – the family of God. The LCC Parish places a strong emphasis on the family as the unit of the parish, rather than individuals.
The cause of who we are: … united, inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit…
There is one agent that builds up the Church, and that is the Holy Spirit. We recognise that the Holy Spirit achieves this primarily through unity (Christ prayed to his Father a number of times in the 17th Chapter of John’s Gospel that ‘they might be one’), and seeks to both “inspire” us and “guide” us.
What we strive for: ….seeking the joy and fulfilment of Christ…
A sure sign of the presence of Christ in the Christian community is “joy” (John 15:11), and the LCC Parish places a strong emphasis on the experience of true joy in the life and activity of the community. It is this joy of Christ that is a sign that the community is finding fulfilment in Christ.
Our mission as Christians: … building the Kingdom of God
As baptised Christians, we have all received the mission to participate and share in Christ’s mission which is to build the kingdom of God.
