OF

FROM THE PASTOR'S PEN

As I'm sure all of you are aware, bishops from around the world are gathered in Rome for the Extraordinary Synod on the Family.  Much has been published in the media this week, most of it incorrect, some of it just plain false.  It's important to keep in mind that discussions are still underway, and this Synod is in fact just a preparation for a much bigger meeting next year.  Satan is always looking to sow confusion, and so we need to evaluate everything we hear in the media, and remember that our Holy Father has not and cannot change Church teaching.  Please continue to pray for the Pope and bishops as they meet, and pray that those who communicate the message may do so with honesty and integrity. 

 

 

MASS FACILITATORS

We are in great need of “Mass Facilitators.”  A Mass Facilitator is a person who assists the Pastor in setting up the Altar and cleaning up (15 min before and after the mass).   All are most welcome to contact Father McGrath or Carl Dalla Costa @ 323-9112 about helping with this job.  Women and students (qualifies for volunteer hours) are most welcome.
