Bp Richard led last month’s discussion session by talking about the sequence of the Holy Eucharist.   He explained  the use of the instruments on the altar, the candles and the jewels in the altar stone, the symbols of the seven rays and the spiritual symbology of the instruments of transformation – the chalice and the paten.

On 2 July the discussion will look in more detail at how the instruments play their part in the unfolding of the divine mystery.

Our Church

St Michael's is the Gold Coast parish of the Liberal Catholic Church in Australia.

It is not part of the Roman Catholic Church .

The Liberal Catholic Church allows priests to be married. As all the clergy are required to make their own living, their church activities are purely voluntary.

We recognise that there are many paths towards finding an understanding of God and our place in the glories of creation, including insights from other religions.
