Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick

 

 

The Liturgy of the Word

 

In the Liturgy of the Word, God speaks to us, opening up to us the mystery of redemption and salvation and nourishing our spirit; and Christ is present in his own word.

 

Just as in ancient biblical times, we, God’s assembled people are cut to the heart; we cry out in joyful psalms and alleluias.

 

God’s story is one we know well; and we have come to celebrate and give thanks.  Assembled as God’s royal and priestly people, and stirred by the indwelling Holy Spirit, we respond to this proclamation with a profession of faith and with the offering of prayers of petition on behalf of the Church and the world.

 

After the celebration we will go back out into the world.  May the Lord be in our hearts and on our lips that we may worthily proclaim his gospel with our lives.

Summer Camp Opportunity

Summer Camp opportunity for youth 10 years to 17 years.  The scouts offer a 1 week summer camp to all youth aged 10 years to 17 years.  If you are looking for camp for your son or daughter the week July 25 to August 1, 2015, please email bob@236toronto.com or phone Bob at 416-465-8639 for further information.

 

Youth will be given opportunity to learn a number of skills including boating, canoeing, sailing, kayak, fire lighting, cooking and be able to use bows and arrows, rifles, repelling and wall climbing.

 

This a high adventure summer camp, sleeping in tents, what we call roughing it.  Every youth that camped last year with our scouts are all looking forward to come again this year and even our leadership team, can’t wait to get back to Haliburton Scout Camp.

 

Cost is $350.00 plus scout membership just for camp $40.00.  If youth wishes to join scouts weekly meeting, registration would be $90.00 from April instead of the $40.00.  Meetings are on Tuesday evenings.
