St. Andrew and the Multiplication of Small Offerings
By Marion Chan

In the story of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes, we tend to overlook one Apostle standing in the background. He is the one who told Jesus that there was a boy with a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish. I think that there is something to be learned from him in that story, and how he presented to God something so small and so lacking. He asked Jesus what it could do. To quote the Bible verse, John 6:9, he said “There is a boy who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what good are these for so many?”

By By Nancy Gonewai, CCD Teacher

That most beautiful light is our very own and uniquely Filipino Parol — heralding for us the light and the message — of the Star of Bethlehem. Sixteen years ago, as a newly-arrived foreigner into this diverse and pre-dominantly Catholic country, my first encounter with CCD’s (Continuing Catholic Development) Light-A-Parol project fascinated me. This fascination continues to the present day — with its very ideals, the labour of love in the making and display of the parols.
