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

John spoke up, "Teacher, we saw a man using your name to expel demons and we stopped him because he wasn't in our group". Jesus wasn't pleased. "Don't stop him. No one can use my name to do something good and powerful, and in the next breath cut him down. If he's not an enemy, he's an ally. Why, anyone by just giving a cup of cold water in my name is on our side. Count on it that God will notice". (Mark 9: 38 - 41)

The Prayer of the Week

Strengthen us, O God, to choose to live faithfully in all the situations we face. Make us bold and courageous advocates for those who are facing danger or risk. Help us be wise, persistent stewards of all that you entrust into our care. Amen.

The Words of Pope Francis

So does the Holy Spirit act in our life and in the life of the Church in order to guide us to the truth? First of all, the Spirit recalls and impresses in the heart of believers the words Jesus spoke and, through these very words, the law of God - as the prophets of the Old Testament had foretold - is engraved in our heart and becomes within us a criterion for evaluation in decisions and for guidance in our daily actions; it becomes a principle to live by. (Pope Francis, General Audience, 15 May 2013)
