Food for Thought
  • Jesus chose Peter, James & John to witness his glory before he faced the passion. It woke them up, this mysterious and memorable moment on Mount Tabor.
  • Thank you Lord, for the moments when I feel you close to me. They strengthen me to face desolate lowlands of my life.

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.

SERVING THE PEOPLE AROUND US

We have to serve those amongst whom the Lord has placed us, learning in this matter from Our Lady.

The greatest among you must be your servant, says the Lord. Thus we have to leave our egoism to one side and discover in ourselves those signs of charity which make others happy. If we do not make the daily effort to forget ourselves, we will pass by those who are near us over and over again without realizing that they could do with a word of encouragement from us for them to do better.

Egoism blinds; it narrows our horizons when we look at others; humility constantly opens up a way to charity in practical details and suggests specific ways of serving. This joyful spirit of openness to the others, and the spirit of availability, is capable or transforming any environment.

The Liturgy Committee


DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE

As Pope Benedict reminds us in the encyclical Caritas in Veritate, “Food and access to water are universal rights of all human beings without distinction or discrimination.” Yet more than a billion people do not have enough food to live healthy, productive lives. Most live in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. This is where Development and Peace works in solidarity with partners to increase access to food for poor communities.

In the coming weeks, you will be provided with stories of some of the partners to better understand the food sovereignty issue. The annual collection for Share Lent will take place on the weekend of March 20-21, Solidarity Sunday.

SIGN-UP AND VOLUNTEER OLV
As mentioned last week, in an effort to reduce costs, the wardens are hoping parishioners will provide some of their time and volunteer to assist with specific tasks. You will find sign-up sheets at the back of the church. The tasks are sub-divided as follows;

- Cleaning of the Rectory (i.e. washing walls, windows, carpets cleaning etc.)
- Small painting jobs
- Dry Cleaning of Vestments
- Minor repairs
- Plumbing and Electrical work
- Pruning of shrubs

INCOME TAX RECEIPTS
