NEW CHURCH – OLD AND NEW IDEAS
This fall we will look at our new “green” church from different perspectives, including: “Who started us in this direction? Why did we choose this way of placing the pews, the altar, the pulpit (ambo)? Do we as Catholics have any tradition linking ecology and religion?” — and any other questions you may have. Each topic will be repeated the following week. You are invited to join us on:
DATE: Wednesday, NOVEMBER 1st (to be repeated on November 8th)
TIME: 10:30 AM to noon
PLACE: Come to the Parish Office
We hope the discussions will be informative and enjoyable. We are also prepared to offer this series of presentations on alternate Tuesday evenings for those interested, beginning NOVEMBER 7th at 7:30 PM. If you wish to attend Tuesday evenings, please phone Mary Landry at 416-293-3760.
On TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 31st
we will begin with the topic: How is our Christian life and ethics similar to those of other faith traditions? How are they different?
TIME: 7:30 – 9:00 PM
PLACE: Come to the Parish Office
CEREMONY OF THE BLESSING OF THE SICK
WILL BE AT 3:00 PM ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2006.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is one of the Seven Sacraments. This Sacrament is celebrated with those who are seriously ill, those who are preparing for surgery and the elderly. The preferred place for celebrating this Sacrament is in the Church with family and the members of the parish community present. All are more than welcome to attend.
I invite any girl or boy from grade 5 and upwards to join our Altar Servers. This is an important ministry in our parish. Mr. Tom Li, who is in charge of our Altar Servers, will be holding a training session on Sunday afternoon, October 22. If you are interested in serving the parish in this way, please call the parish office and leave your name and phone number or speak to me after one of the Masses.
The parish is creating a social club for all people between 20 and 30 years of age. Whether you want to network or meet people to hang around with, you are welcome! Our first meeting will be in the Church (date to be determined). All who would like to join or who need more information are asked to email Felipe Sanchez Rijckewaert at: email@example.com
