Fruits of the Jubilee

Remember when...

In 1997-2000 parishes and dioceses across Australia undertook a host of pastoral initiatives designed to prepare and celebrate the Great Jubilee of 2000. I supported their efforts by producing four parish bulletin kits, published by The Story Source.

Fruits of the Jubilee offers a selection of 200 items from those kits, revised for use beyond the Jubilee year. After all, why let all that adult education material sit on a shelf just because the Jubilee year is over?


  1. Jesus: Short statements about the gift of Jesus, the sacrament of baptism and the sacredness of Scripture.
  2. Holy Spirit: Brief reflections on themes of conversion, the call to repentance, unity and reconciliation.
  3. Father: Practical ideas for exploring the Father’s love for us and responding to the summons to ‘build a civilization of love.’
  4. Great Jubilee: Bite-size reflections on the gift of the Eucharist and what it means to live and grow as a Eucharistic people.
