Twenty Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)
WHAT IS THIS SPECIAL LAUNCH DAY ALL ABOUT?
In a recent pastoral message our Bishop, Roger Ebacher called on all the parishes in our Diocese to become "schools of catechesis". What does he mean by that? It has a lot to do with our parishes becoming communities where children, young people and - even more so - where we as adults continue to be formed as disciples, as followers of Jesus Christ. Are our two parishes the sort of places where such formation takes place?
For that to happen we need to take good care of the four areas that make up parish life:
These activities do not just happen. Nor can they be left to the priest and "always the same few lay-people". We are all baptised, and as such called and empowered to continue the mission of Jesus. That mission consists in activating the four areas of activities that make up a healthy parish.
None of us can do this on our own. But together and with each one of us making a small contribution we can make sure that the Spirit which Jesus promised will not let us down. Are you game?
SORRY, BUT THE WEEKDAY MASS IS CHANGED TO WEDNESDAY:
The Mass is at 9:00 a.m. Choir practice will take place after Mass.
TWO DIOCESAN EVENTS COMING UP:
SPECIAL COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND (SEPT. 25/26) for the Needs of the Church in Canada. Each year at this time the Bishops of Canada ask for your support and prayers in order to carry out some of the most vital and important activities in the life of our church. Your participation in this collection ensures that the voice of the Bishops is heard nationally on such issues as concern for justice and peace, the definition of marriage, the elimination of racism, the importance of families, the protection of the environment, and defending human life from conception until death.
Your contribution to the Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada provides you an opportunity to participate in the work of the Bishops in helping to bring the Good News to a world in need of Christ's message of hope and love.
