Reading I 1 Samuel 3.3b – 10, 19 Responsorial Psalm Here am I Lord; I come to do your will.
Reading II 1 Corinthians 6. 13c -15a, 17 - 20 Gospel John 1. 35 - 42
Food for Thought
  • Such a searching question that is: What are you looking for? Many would say: I’m not looking for anything. I am just trying to survive. Bur in somber moments we realize that we would like our lives to amount to more than just getting and spending, eating and sleeping.
  • Lord, I want you to look at me as you looked at Simon. Invite me to see where you are to be found and to remain with you.

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.

WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY 2009, JANUARY 18-25
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity invites the whole Christian community throughout the world to pray in communion with the prayer of Jesus “that they all may be one” (John 17:21). In 1966, the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches and the Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity began collaborating as a common international text for worldwide usage.

Although our parishes have not planned a special mass during the Week other than the Sunday celebrations, for those interested in participating in daily scripture readings and reflections, the Daily Scripture and Prayer Guide, produced by the Graymoor Ecumenical & Interreligious Institute is an excellent instrument to promote Christian unity. Copies of the Guide can be found on the table at the entrance to the churches.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION AND PRAYER
You are all invited to join the group of prayer and adoration in the Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament every Sunday from 4 to 5 o’clock pm in St. Aloysius Church (300 rue, Abbe-Murray Gatineau) Please note that this coming advent 2008 will mark the 12th anniversary of Eucharistic Adoration and Evening Prayer at St. Aloysius Church.

In the words of Mother Julienne of the Rosary, who is presently a candidate for sainthood in Rome, “Pray that our Lord will send many adorators to His Church. My dream is that there be many priests, parishes, Eucharistic families, communities, prayer groups and generations of worshippers. Love and glory to the Holy Trinity through the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.”

TWICE A YEAR A “MARRIAGE PREPARATION SESSION” IN OUR DIOCESE
The next Marriage Preparation Session for couples who plan to get married in one of our English parishes in the Diocese will take place November 28-30.
