From Kathy Mullaney, Wellesley, MA
Arriving at St Anthony's in the Field
in Terrey Hills, Sydney, Australia, we parked behind
the round parish building and strolled up to the Churchy
initially viewing their kitchen through the full wall
of sliding glass doors with its huge harvest dining
table. It reminded me of Susan Troy (National Prayerful
Voice chair) reminder that the Mass, the re-creation
of the Last Supper, is basically sharing a meal together
- this Church had it right. One of their Family Groups
was about to have its "Christmas in July" celebration
after the 5pm Mass. Children hopped and skipped around
the grounds flowing in and out of all the open church
and kitchen doors while the adults greeted each other
and busily prepared to share their evening together.
There was much community living everywhere!
