Food for Thought
Each year we celebrate an international day of prayer for the sick. Pray for them today, and learn from them. Remember the words of one saint, bed-ridden for 38 years. “We are all dupes. We seek happiness, and find sorrow. We offer ourselves for suffering, and find joy.

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

Each Lent, Development and Peace, the Canadian Catholic Church’s international development agency, invites Canadian Catholics to give, with love, to those with the least in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. The popular Lifestyle Awareness Calendar helps families reflect on the gifts they enjoy, and collect alms so that others may share in the feast of life.

This year the Calendar has more activities for families with young children, including growing a Lenten plant that can be used as a Symbol of Solidarity. A copy of the Calendar is included with the bulletin. Tell others about it. Development and Peace’s annual collection will take place the weekend of March 20-21, Solidarity Sunday.
