Why GPBS?

GPBS is more than a website or media hub. GPBS is your go-to space for connecting students and staff in Catholic schools through relevant faith experiences and engaging liturgy that intersects with our day-to-day human encounters.

At its core, GPBS is all about accompanying Catholic schools as they cultivate rich experiences of faith that speak to the contemporary world. With an annual online subscription package, you can access daily, weekly, seasonal and annual prayer and liturgical resources and multimedia.

Additionally, the GPBS Mission & Ministry Team can work directly with your school community to facilitate student and staff retreats, workshops, leadership formation and professional learning opportunities that foster the ability in your team to do the same.

Scripture of the Week

At once, this same Spirit pushed Jesus out into the wild. For forty wilderness days and nights Jesus was tested by Satan. Wild animals were his companions, and the angels took care of him. After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee preaching the message of God: "Time's up! God's kingdom is here. Change your life and believe the message."

Prayer of the Week

We come to you, O God, in this Season of Lent, to reflect on Jesus’ journey to the cross, and beyond that to resurrection. We dare to do that, supported by stories of the many promises and the covenant you made to your people throughout history. Come to us in this season, O God, and remind us once again that you’re always with us: in death and resurrection, in desert and in flood. Amen.

Frankly Speaking

Eat whatever you want for Easter, the sacrifice is not in the stomach, but in the heart. People refrain from eating meat, but don't talk to their siblings or relatives, don't visit their parents or bother them or attend to them. They don't share food with the needy, forbid children to see their father or mother, forbid grandparents to see their grandchildren, criticise other people's lives, beat their wife, etc. A good barbeque or beef stew won't make you a bad person, just like a fish fillet won't turn you into a saint. Better to seek to have a deeper relationship with God through better treatment of others let's be less arrogant and more humble at heart.
