Reading I Exodus 17.8 -13 Responsorial Psalm Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth
Reading II 2 Timothy 3.14 – 4.2 Gospel Luke 18. 1 - 8
Food for Thought
  • This woman was socially vulnerable – at the mercy of family and friends. This judge is a person of power and influence.
  • God grants justice to those who persist, and grants it speedily. Do I persist in my faith, in my prayer; or do I falter regularly?
  • Can I ask the Lord about this? Can I imagine this scene? Ten miserable individuals have to call on Jesus from a distance for fear of contaminating him.

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH? WELCOME!
Welcome to those who want to make our parish their faith home. You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest. Thank you and welcome.

Development and Peace

Update on 2006 mining campaign
Last year DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE began its focus on mining with a letter campaign calling on the federal government to regulate how Canadian companies mine overseas.

Over 152,000 letters were received. At least 36 Members of Parliament were visited by DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE members concerned about mining. DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE participated in a national consultation (roundtables) on Canadian companies in the mining, oil and gas industries working in Global south. The report out of those roundtables is an exciting step forward for this issue. It calls for a whole framework on how these industries should operate. The current education campaign theme comes from these roundtables and report.

Next week, a more in-depth look at the 2007 campaign.

INVITATION TO THE FALL ZONE WORKSHOP NOVEMBER 17TH
Challenged with the huge task of gaining an understanding of and familiarizing ourselves with the components of a living faith, here and now, we question whether we will be able to help anyone in search of meaning and spirituality guidance, or whether we are capable of helping them make a few evangelical steps forward. And we are asked to do this in ever-changing times. But how to make it tangible in today’s reality? Together let us continue our attempts at wrestling with the concepts mandated to us by our Bishop with the publication Discovering Jesus Christ the Path to Freedom, exploring its vision and taking a look at where we are with our communities sharing the responsibility to announce the Gospel in today’s world and offer Jesus Christ, life force, the way to become fully human.

What: Exploring “the how” to becoming schools of catechesis
When: Saturday November 17th 2007 – 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Where: Our Lady of Annunciation parish – 189, rue Archambault, Hull

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING PARTICIPATING AT THE ZONE WORKSHOP
We have a little ‘homework’ to do before we go to the Zone workshop together! It involves naming all the things we ‘do’ and all that we ‘are’ as a two-parish community. If we are to be serious about our role in our Christian mission, we need to understand who we are today, in order to be enabled to move into tomorrow. There won’t be time to spend on this portion of the exercise at the Zone meeting, but to get the most out of it, it is imperative to have this for the meeting. Please join us on November 4th at the rectory from 2 pm if you are considering participating at the Zone workshop.

REGARDING OUR GENERAL ASSEMBLY MEETING LAST SUNDAY
The wardens and PPC members would like to thank each and every one of you who were able to participate at this important meeting last Sunday.

The meeting held to the promised length of two hours and your ideas, comments and thoughts will help determine what we do next. If you have any other comments to add, please contact any one of the PPC or Fabrique members or drop them a note in the Sunday collection basket.

The wardens and PPC will meet to discuss our action plan and will mail this report back to the whole community once it is finalized. If you need to adjust your mail address, please contact Alma during office hours, or drop a note in the Sunday collection basket.

Your support for our 2-parish community
is both generous as well as appreciated.

Thank you!
