Thank You!

We are happy to see increasing numbers attending either our weekday masses (church only until capacity is reached) or Saturday 5:00 p.m. or Sunday masses (church…with livestream into hall once church capacity is reached). Please note that the use of masks or face coverings remains mandatory here in the church. We thank you for your co-operation!

We remind you that Cardinal Collins has continued the dispensation from Sunday mass for those of any age whose health is compromised, have a fever or who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. The livestreaming of the mass on our parish website will also continue each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. for those who cannot join us for mass at the church.

Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist

For the past five years Loretta and Mario Rodriguez have faithfully co-ordinated the organization and scheduling of our Ministers of the Eucharist at each weekend mass. I wish to thank them for their dedication and hard work!

We welcome Audrey D’Souza as our new Co-ordinator for the Ministers of the Eucharist and thank her for accepting this role during these challenging times.

Knights of Columbus Roses for Life/Life Chain

I thank the Knights of Columbus for their work for pro-life causes, especially through the donations you will offer them for the pro-life lapel ROSES FOR LIFE that are available at the back of the church and hall after each mass this weekend.

Please join your fellow parishioners after the noon mass on Sunday, October 4 outside our church along Burnhamthorpe Rd. West. Life Chain is a prayerful, peaceful, and powerful witness to the evil of abortion and the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception. Please see the poster on the bulletin board.

Bible Study has resumed…Please join us!

The Eucharist in Scripture is this fall’s bible study topic. It will explore the biblical theme of meals shared in faithful fellowship and in covenant relationship with God. Old Testament meals and promises to provide a foundation for gospel meals with Jesus, culminating in the Last Supper as it is understood throughout the New Testament. Jesus' bread of life discourse and the early church's practice of "breaking bread" are also explored.

This is an excellent introduction to bible study for those who have not yet attended one of our Little Rock Bible Studies! We begin this six-week Thursday evening bible study on Thursday, October 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the parish hall…registration is $30 per participant. Everyone is welcome!

First Friday 9:00 a.m. Mass and Holy Hour

Join us on Friday, October 2…due to popular demand this mass will be livestreamed into the parish hall once capacity is reached in the church. All are welcome!

First Saturday 9:00 a.m. Mass and Rosary

…this Saturday, October 3.

World Day of Prayer for Migrants and Refugees: Cardinal Collins’ Livestream Mass at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday September 27

We thank our parishioners and especially our parish Refugee Committee for their assistance over the past year in assisting single mom Assaba Bill and her four children. I am pleased to report that they are doing well and are now able to be financially independent and able to remain in the rented accommodation that we provided for them throughout this past year.

This year’s Archdiocesan Mass for the World Day of Migrants & Refugees will be celebrated virtually by Cardinal Collins today at the 10:00 AM Mass at St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica. The Mass will be livestreamed here: https://www.stmichaelscathedral.com/live/ Following the livestream, the Mass along with prerecorded videos from several guest speakers will be made available on ORAT’s website: www.orat.ca .

These are intended to draw our attention to the plight of so many who have been displaced from their homes and homelands. Please pray for the precarious status of refugees during this time of pandemic.

ShareLife 2020 Update…

With churches closed at the start of the 2020 ShareLife Campaign, our ShareLife Sunday collections were delayed. In the meantime, the challenges faced by the people helped by ShareLife-funded agencies have only increased. “The needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ are greater than ever before," says Cardinal Thomas Collins. "In order for ShareLife agencies to continue their vital work, it is crucial we meet our parish campaign goal of $13.8 million. Our goal can be met, but only with your help.

Last weekend we welcomed Mr. David Bruce, Associate Executive Director of St. Michael's Homes in Toronto as our guest speaker for the Sunday masses.

We thank you for your great response thus far to this year’s ShareLife campaign. We have received $180,203.70 in donations to date towards our parish goal of $234,600. Due to COVID-19 the campaign will now extend into the fall with special collection dates of October 11 and November 8 for those who have not yet had a chance to donate this year. Parishioners can still contribute by credit card through the ShareLife website www.sharelife.org by dropping their envelope in the collection basket or by mailing their contribution to the parish. October 11 is ShareLife Sunday. Please give generously.

Thank You for your continued financial support…
