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

This is the one (John the Baptist) of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight". (Mathew 3: 3)

The Sunday Gospel

The Prayer of the Week

When we opt for the easy way, the familiar routine, bring us out of our comfort zone, loving God. Change us. When we are aware of a challenge and have the chance to go a new way, bring us out of our comfort zone, loving God. Change us. When we receive the opportunity to join a just cause and work with others, bring us out of our comfort zone, loving God. Change us. When we realise that the faithful way will cost us time, cost us energy, cost us peace of mind, bring us out of our comfort zone, loving God. Change us. Amen.

The Words of Pope Francis

Consumerism is a virus that attacks the faith at its roots, because it makes you believe that life depends only on what you have, and so you forget God, who comes to meet you and who is at your side. Moreover, the Lord comes but you follow more the appetites that come to you; the brother or sisters knocks at your door, but they are an annoyance, because they disturb your plans. (Address, St Peter's Basilica, 1 December 2019)

Our prayers seem so routine. How do I make it more meaningful?

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!
