From the Desk of Fr. Tim …

Harvest of Talents Ministry Fair!

We are so blessed as a parish community with 32 parish ministries that involve hundreds of parishioners in service of our parish and the local community. In lieu of a homily today, we will invite you (after the recessional hymn) into the parish hall as we celebrate these ministries. Please visit and discernment as to which ministry you might offer your time and talents as we continue to be a parish community of loving service “for the greater glory of God” (St. Ignatius Loyola). A representative will be at each table so that you can find out more about each ministry and how it serves our parish or the greater community.

World Mission Sunday…

Today, on World Mission Sunday, we are invited to celebrate our mission’s vocation, to pray for the people who are actively engaged in mission, and to generously contribute to our worldwide mission solidarity fund through this collection. Your gift helps people in remote villages, towns and cities through the witness and work of missionaries and local priests. Children, the elderly, refugees, the sick and orphans are helped through the services of religious Sisters and Brothers who bring the Gospel to the poorest of our human family. The message of hope and peace that only Christ can give is also proclaimed by catechists.

Please offer your prayers for the work of the Church in missions today and be as generous as you can on this World Mission Sunday!

October 21 is Election Day – Time to Vote!

The Archdiocese of Toronto invites every eligible Catholic to vote in the federal election on October 21. One of the five core directions of the Archdiocese of Toronto's Pastoral Plan calls on us to be engaged in the public square. As a charity, the Archdiocese of Toronto must remain non-partisan and cannot direct the Catholic community to vote for a particular candidate or party. What we can do is educate voters and to ensure they are informed to make a responsible decision on election day. We can also share info on issues from a Catholic perspective – visit www.archtoronto.org/election for more info. Please take the time to pray for those seeking elected office, reflect on your vote from a Catholic perspective and most importantly, cast your ballot.
