WE ARE AN ONLINE RESOURCE HUB FOR EDUCATORS IN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS

Welcome to GPBS

A multimedia website connecting faith, liturgy and life

GPBS (Gather, Proclaim, Break, Send) is a multimedia online website connecting faith, liturgy and life. It’s for School and Parish communities searching for contemporary resources that speak to the hearts, minds and stories of people, especially the young.

Why GPBS?

GPBS is based on four key components: Gather, Proclaim, Break, Send – these components are essential elements for planning, preparing and proclaiming in liturgy and ritual and ultimately connecting with our life experiences. The GPBS team is committed to providing resources that are user-friendly and adaptable. We are continually developing and redeveloping resources after dialogue with people who are working in the ‘mission field’ – listening, discerning and creating. We are conscious of the time (and energy) taken in preparing liturgy and prayer that is engaging, challenging and life-giving. Therefore, our website is user-friendly and liturgy-friendly. At GPBS we are committed to supporting and promoting, where possible, Australian Catholic artists who give so generously of their time and talent. GPBS has a listening ear to the signs of the times and the movement of the Spirit in the lives of God’s people

The Scripture of the Week

For a while the judge refused; but later he said to himself, "Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so they she may not wear me out by continually coming". (Luke 18: 4 - 5)

The Sunday Gospel

The Prayer of the Week

Enduring Spirit, who does not break in suffering, nor wander from truth, empower us to follow your bold commands: to know God, to love God's way, to hold back from evil, to hate false ways, to proclaim the gospel, and to carry out our ministry fully. Like the widow who asks Jesus for justice, "help us to pray always and to not lose heart". Amen.

The Words of Pope Francis

These days there is a lot of poverty in the world, and that's a scandal when we have so many riches and resources to give to everyone. We all have to think about how we can become a little poorer. (Morning Address, 30 July 2017)

I don’t know what to do first.

It sounds so simple: “Line up your priorities!” As if your priorities will somehow get in line! Part of the issue is that, of course, the priorities are not just “yours”

I’m swamped with paperwork!

My teaching colleague, working on a report about our school, lamented, “I didn’t become a teacher to do paperwork!” I am guessing most of us would say
