Reading I Acts 1. 1 - 11 Responsorial Psalm God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet
Reading II Ephesians 1.17- 23 Gospel Luke 24.46 - 53
Food for Thought
  • I’m walking out to Bethany with Jesus and the disciples. He seems to be giving us final instructions. We are filled with love, but also with foreboding. He constantly comes back to the promise of help, of the Holy Spirit, of the Comforter, of power from on high.

  • He raises his hand in a familiar blessing – and suddenly he is gone. Astonishingly I feel, in my companions and myself, not desolation. But 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.

Another way individuals can contribute is to donate gift certificates from local businesses or provide various gift baskets. As well, our local artists are also encouraged to participate by donating paintings or crafts.

POINT OF CLARIFICATION CONCERNING ST. GREGOIRE CEMETERY
It has come to the attention of the OLV Wardens that there may be some confusion regarding the recent policy issued for the St. Grégoire Cemetery. Please note that the objective of the policy is to update leaseholder files and to confirm that the leaseholders are aware of their obligations as leaseholders and, we repeat, not to reclaim burial lots for resale. Hopefully this will clarify any misunderstanding. For more information, please refer to the blue pamphlets that can be found at the entrance of the church.

CHURCH FUNERAL PARKING
Please note that when there is a funeral at our church, a member of the church will contact the City of Gatineau to obtain a parking tolerance. This tolerance will include the streets surrounding the church - Charles Street, Joseph Street, Pine Street and MacLaren Street only. It does not include the parking lot behind the fire station - the parking time limit must be respected in that lot.

This tolerance is usually effective 1 hour prior to the funeral service to 2-3 hours after the service. (Example: if service is at 11:00 am - parking tolerance will be from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm). After this time frame, the regular 2-3 hour parking restriction becomes effective.

NOTE: All No Parking and Handicap Parking must be respected at all times. Parking tolerance or not.
