From the Desk of Fr. Tim …

A Prayer for Thanksgiving…

Thanksgiving at LoyolaGod our creator, your gifts to us are countless and your goodness without limit. As we come in thanksgiving teach us to use wisely the riches of land and seas, and all the blessings which come from you. Grant us hearts that know the needs of others that we may give as freely as we have received from you. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen

Thanksgiving Food Drive…

Special thanks to our Youth Ministry and the Knights of Columbus for their assistance in receiving your donations and transporting them to the Salvation Army Food Bank after the Sunday Noon Mass.

New Parking Lot and Glen Erin Drive Access Now Open!

We are happy to invite you to use our new Glen Erin Drive access and to park in one of our new 148 parking spots…especially in these next few weeks as the parking lot to the south and east of the church will be under construction. On weekends we hope to have access from our main entrance on Burnhamthorpe Road, linking to the existing parking areas around the St. Kateri Centre and the new parking lot to the west of the church. During weekdays we will close the main Burnhamthorpe access due to construction, and we therefore invite you to use either South Common Court or Glen Erin Drive to access the new parking lot and other areas not under re-construction.

Ministry Fair Next Weekend!

Please join us for our Parish Ministry Fair after each mass next weekend October 17/18. The mass will be shortened and no homily will be given so that we can visit the parish hall after mass where each one of our 30 parish ministries will provide an information display. It will be an opportunity for us not only to give thanks for all the great ministries at work in our parish community, but for each of us to consider how we might offer our gifts and talents in service of the Lord here at our parish.

World Mission Sunday Special Collection - Next Weekend, October 17/18…

On World Mission Sunday, we, along with Catholics throughout the world are called to offer our prayers and generous financial support thorough the Propagation of the Faith, for the worldwide mission of Jesus. Your gift helps people in remote villages, towns and cities and helps Religious Sisters and Brothers bring the Gospel to the poorest of our human family and so much more. I also ask that you offer prayers for the work of the Church today in the Missions of Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and remote regions of Latin America.

Liturgy of the Word for Children…

Liturgy of the Word for Children has resumed at the Sunday 10:30 a.m. and Noon Masses…just a reminder that this programme is for school-aged children currently enrolled in JK up to Grade 3 or 4. New volunteers are always welcomed for this ministry- both adults over 18 (who are interviewed and must provide a police check) and youth aged 16-18 to assist (interview and reference check). Please speak to Fr. Tim if you are interested.

Little Rock Bible Study Begins Thursday, October 22nd at 7:00 p.m…

This fall’s Little Rock Scripture Study is entitled Psalms I and begins Thursday, October 22 at 7 p.m. for 7 weeks ending Thursday, December 3rd…all are welcome especially newcomers! Registration (on first evening) is $20 per person for books and materials.

The Book of the Psalms is a unique collection of the song-prayers of Israel. To study Psalms is to study prayer, ultimately to enter into prayer. The study will challenge participants to reflect on their own prayer and life experiences. Psalms I focuses on a selection of twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories: Psalms of Descriptive Praise, Psalms of Trust or Confidence, Wisdom Psalms, “Psalms of descriptive praise, also known as hymns, praise God for his ongoing, regular care of the world and humanity” (from p. 8 of the commentary). Psalms of trust or confidence reinforce the belief that the God who made and loves us will protect us in difficult situations. Wisdom psalms are an acknowledgment of God's justice in the right ordering of human affairs.

Update on Flat Roof Replacement – Now Spring 2016

As you know we have tendered a contract for the Replacement of Flat Roofs (above our parish hall and kitchen, vestibule, sacristy and offices). While we had hoped to have this completed before the winter it will not be possible to do so now until April 2016. In the interim we are doing some more patching repairs to take us through the winter…we hope!
