Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick


The Lectionary


In its lectionary, the Church has collected certain Bible texts which best express the mystery of salvation within the liturgy.


On most Sundays the first reading is related to the gospel text and gives it focus.


This is not true, however, of the first reading on weekdays, nor of the second reading during the Sundays Ordinary Time.


These are passages from a single book of the Bible proclaimed day-by-day or Sunday-by-Sunday in biblical order.


The responsorial psalm is related to the first reading. It is a proclamation of the word of God sung at the ambo. This proclamation is shared by the cantor and the rest of the assembly.


In the singing of the psalms the risen Lord unites the voice of his body, the Church, with his own eternal hymn of praise.


In the words of Psalm 122, “Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.”

Catholic Education Week

May 3-8, 2015

“Exploring Paths of Joy!”

  We invite all parishioners to join in celebrating Catholic Education Week 2015, which runs from May 3-8.  For more than 160 years, Ontario’s publicly funded Catholic schools have been integrating our faith into all aspects of school life, empowering one another to serve as faithful disciples.  We celebrate the distinctive contribution that Catholic schools provide, giving thanks and offering our prayers for all those who diligently nurture this precious gift.  For more information about Catholic Education Week visit www.goodnewsforall.ca






The 18th annual National March for Life will take place in our Nations’s Capital on Thursday, May 14, 2015.  This year’s theme is “Let Life Win” – it being an election year.


            Last year over 25,000 people – young and old, strong and infirm – along with political and religious leaders, gathered peacefully on Parliament Hill to listen to speakers express their plea for a better Canada, one that will respect all human life and uphold the dignity of all human beings.  Come and join the thousands in this impressive public witness to the intrinsic value of human life.
