WE ARE BACK IN ORDINARY TIME

The Church’s year is made up of two high seasons (Lent-Easter and Advent- Christmas) and two blocks of what, in Church language, is called Ordinary Time. It is most noticeable in the changed décor of the Church. The Easter banners have gone and on most Sundays the priest wears green vestments. Some of the music which is integral to the Mass also tends to be different. We will be in that mode for a good stretch of time, basically until the Advent season begins, November 27th.

Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule: this Sunday, Trinity Sunday, and next Sunday, Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ. The vestments are white to mark the two feasts that the Church observes on these Sundays. These two feasts could be seen as spin-offs from the enormous and foundational event we celebrated in the fifty days of Easter and for which we prepared in the forty-day Lenten season: the crucified Jesus being raised from the dead.

Trinity Sunday makes us focus on the source of that central mystery of our faith, the communion of life and love which is God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ makes us face the Mystery of the Eucharist where, ideally, we are formed as a communion which has its origin in the communion of God Father, Son and which is called to reflect that communion of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.



OUR LADY OF VICTORY NEEDS YOU
Our Parish is at a crossroad when it comes to volunteers. We face a serious shortfall. There is an urgent need for Parishioners to come forward and volunteer as church wardens.

There is a myth that being a warden is a complicated and time-consuming commitment. This is not the case. What I am proposing is that interested candidates would attend an information session where questions and responsibilities would be addressed. Once all issues have been addressed, candidates could make an informed decision on whether to move forward or not.

We really need to address the Wardens issue as soon as possible in order to comply with rules and regulations that govern the administration of the Parish.

If you are interested in attending an information session on being a Warden, please contact me at 819-986-8901.

Bill Cameron, Chairperson of the Fabrique Our Lady of Victory Parish


GOLFERS, MARK YOUR CALENDARS

 

The 10th edition of the Archbishop of Gatineau's Golf Open will be held on September 9th at Kingsway Park Golf Club. For Archbishop Durocher, who is also celebrating his 25th anniversary as a bishop this year, this will be an opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the tournament so that he can support the mission of community organizations in the region. So, you are invited to form your team, the registration period will begin in the next few weeks. Thank you!
