  • You put that question: ‘Who do you say that I am?
  • As I pray about your question, your own words echo in me: ‘’ I am the Way the Truth and the 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.

49th International Eucharistic Congress in Quebec City - June 15th to 22nd


After eight days attending various celebrations and activities in Quebec during the 49th International Eucharistic Congress in Quebec City, I’ve come back to my community with many kinds of feelings and thoughts. The literature prepared for the Congress indicated that the goal was for Catholics from around the world to celebrate their faith in the Eucharist and to bear witness to the Gospel by sharing moments of prayer, reflection and fraternity. How wonderful it was to be with so many different people, of all ages, from around the world and we all had one thing in common – our faith! I met with the other members of the Parish Pastoral Council since my return and they’ve agreed to help me sort through my 26 pages of notes so that we can produce monthly communiqués to parishioners on the Eucharist.

Until then, you can visit the diocesan website at www.diocesegatineau.org and access the ECDQ.tv site to view the daily catechesis presentations, witnessing presentations as well as the homilies - you just scroll down to the event of your choice. The blurb that I sent for the bulletin last week touched on the Eucharistic Congress program a bit and, together with the other “pilgrims”, we will eventually produce a record of all that we saw and heard. The diocese will also be producing something so that all parishioners can get a sense of the great experience of such a congress. The diocesan delegation (132 delegates were registered at the Diocese at last count) has met three times to prepare for the Congress, each time with some kind of reflection on the Eucharist and what it means to each of us personally. What PPC has asked me to do when I return from the Congress is to share with our two-parish community something of this unique experience of true Eucharistic renewal.

Pope Benedict joined us at the closing mass held on the Plains of Abraham, via satellite, and his concluding words to us were to pray for vocations. He also advised that the next Eucharistic Congress will be held in 2012 in Dublin, Ireland. Stay tuned for more information on the Congress in our bulletins.

WEBMASTER
Our "WebMaster" steps down: Ambrose Ward has been our Website Administrator since the inception of our website at www.stmalachyolv.com and must now take leave of these duties. He has been a tremendous asset to our 'spreading the Word' out there in the land of the Wide World Web, and we thank him for all his has done in that capacity. And now we must call on a replacement to fill his shoes. To date, however, we have had no offers or inquiries. Since it is unfair to Ambrose to keep him 'on duty' forever like this, the PPC will try its best to take over these weekly tasks, for now. We will continue the search for his replacement though. If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, please let us know! You can contact any one of the PPC members or leave a message with Alma at the office.

THANK YOU TO THE RELAY FOR LIFE COMMITTEE
A special thank you from OLV & St Malachy parishes to Monique Simpson and her Co-organizing Committee members and all who helped in any way to make this event such a success. The amount raised was over $66,000, in Buckingham and area.
