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

Jesus took Peter, James, and John off by themselves. They went up on top of a nearby mountain where Jesus had an out-of-the-ordinary type of experience. He had a glow about him and he was really talking with two prophets who had been dead for years. The apostles saw Moses and Elijah meeting with Jesus. Then a voice came out of a nearby cloud and said, 'This is my beloved Son. Listen to him'. Then all of a sudden these guys saw Jesus standing alone. They didn't tell anyone about this, but kept it to themselves. (Luke 9: 28 - 36)

The Sunday Gospel

The Prayer of the Week

God of love, our families are woven together with the stories and practices of many religious traditions. Here in this school may we be an example of living harmony and respecting what is different and unique in how we approach you. On this Lenten day, we will love our neighbours as ourselves. Amen.

The Words of Pope Francis

"Put on Christ!" in your life, and you will find a friend in whom you can always trust. "Put on Christ!" and you will see the wings of hope spreading and letting you journey with joy toward the future. "Put on Christ!" and your life will be full of his love; it will be a fruitful life. (World Youth Day, 2013)
