Thank You!

…for your sign ups in the parish hall last weekend to assist our Refugee Family with what they will need for the 3-bedroom semi-detached house which we have leased for them for the upcoming year, as well as the gift cards for their clothing needs for the coming winter. Your extreme generosity has meant that all of their needs are now covered! If you have signed-up, please drop off your item(s) in the parish hall next weekend, September 28/29.

…for your support of Hurricane Dorian Disaster Relief. We continue to offer our prayer and financial support for the victims of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas using the yellow Humanitarian Relief envelopes at the doors of the church, marking them “Hurricane Dorian Disaster Relief”.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is involved in national and international areas of pastoral activity, including social justice, ecumenical and interfaith relations, collaboration with Aboriginal Peoples, life and family issues, liturgy, catechesis, doctrine and relations with Catholic associations and movements.

The Collection helps to support these endeavours.

Mass for the Anointing of the Sick…

On Saturday, September 28 at 9:00 a.m. we will celebrate a special Mass for the Anointing of the Sick. Please extend an invitation to those Roman Catholics in your families whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age, as we would be happy to anoint them during the mass.

If you have a loved one who is homebound, or seriously ill please call Fr. Mauricio or me for an initial visit and possible Anointing of the Sick. We would then be happy to offer them the option of receiving communion at home. Special thanks to our Pastoral Care Team for their assistance with this mass, and for their weekly visits to the sick in their homes, at Sunrise and Parkland on the Green, and at Credit Valley Hospital.

Harvest of Talents Ministry Fair on October 19/20…

We are excited to offer a new opportunity for our parishioners to offer their time and talent in service of one of our 35 parish ministries at our Ministry Fair after each mass in the parish hall. Please mark the weekend of October 19/20 in your calendar and plan to join us!

Little Rock Bible Study…

Join us for “Life Eternal” on Thursday evenings from 7:00 -9:00 p.m. in the parish hall beginning on October 3. This study has 7 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 6 lessons. The biblical promise of eternal life appears late in Scripture and blossoms into fullness with the resurrection of Christ. Explore the growing nature of the hope of those who have called upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the past, and the crystallization of our hope for eternal life in the victory of Christ over death. Those with some familiarity with Scripture will find it both inspiring and informative as the hope of eternal life develops and crystallizes through the sweep of salvation history. The cost is $30 per person.

EDGE Ministry…

Our parish will continue with the EDGE Program geared to students in Grade 6, 7, 8. every 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Our next meeting is on Monday, October 7 in the parish hall. The topic is Integrity: An EDGE Night on the Sixth Commandment. Bring a friend!
