Food for Thought
  • Here is a new image of God. The vine-grower has a sharp knife and a keen eye to the vine’s health. If he cuts it, it is to make the plant more vigorous and fruitful.
  • Lord, when I feel your sharp touch, I may resent it, but I trust your love for me

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.

OLV PARISH NEWS
Earlier this year, the Wardens indicated that they would be seeking new revenue streams to assist in offsetting administrative and operating costs. One of our initiatives was to seek ways to use the Rectory as a revenue generating area.

As of May 1st, we have our first tenant, Just.Equipping, who is renting office space in the dining and living room areas of the Rectory. Just.Equipping is a not for profit Canadian charity committed to educating, training, and equipping prison chaplains and workers. Their activities are directed towards Africa. As an example, Just.Equipping has undertaken training sessions in Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroon.

Just.Equipping fulfills its mission by:

  • Sending teaching teams of 4-5 people to developing countries for intensive training sessions; and
  • Bringing to Canada a small number of key leaders to benefit from the annual Restorative Justice Sessions at Queen’s University in Kingston.

In addition to renting office space, from time to time Just.Equipping will also be renting bedrooms for students coming from Africa to participate in their programming.

The Wardens are pleased to be able to partner with such a worthwhile organization.

PRAYERS & SYMPATHY
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Ginette Cadieux Pearson whose funeral took place at OLV on Saturday. Please remember Brian, Jason and the Pearson & Cadieux families in your prayers.
