Pastor’s Pen

In these last weeks of Ordinary Time at the end of the liturgical year, the Church reminds us that this world will come to an end, and that our call is to be watchful and ready. Often, however, our attention is drawn to the suffering and evil that will mark the end. These readings also invite us to pay attention to the signs of life. God is working out his glory in the new leaves of spring as much as in the dark of night. Every generation sees the violence, evil and suffering in the world, and wonders if it might be the end. It doesn’t matter if we are the last generation or not. We are called to be watchful and ready, proclaiming light to all who wander in the dark. We are called to be prophets of light and hope in the midst of the suffering our friends, families and neighbours are living now, all around us.

The parish is truly grateful to all of its altar servers for their participation at the celebration of the Eucharist and ceremonies throughout the Church year.



This past Sunday we had our Ministry Fair.  We have been announcing about it and the information was displayed at the back of the church for weeks.  I would like thank Carol Soloman for putting out the display and more importantly I thank her for coming up with an ideal theme for the ministry fair, BE PART OF A CARING COMMUNITY.  I would like to thank all the ministries that made up wonderful displays for their ministries. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the ministries please call the parish office.
