Meetings will begin on Monday, SEPTEMBER 17, 2007 at 7:30 PM. THESE EVENINGS ARE FOR PERSONS INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH. Because the Parish Community itself is considered the official teacher and guide for potential new members, it is important that some parishioners participate by being present and by sharing their Faith in various ways. Adult Catholics who wish to celebrate the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation are welcome. For information call Mary Landry at 416-221-8866 ext 224.
TUESDAY NIGHTS AND WEDNESDAY MORNINGS ARE LEARNING TIMES
One group meets every second Tuesday evening. The other group meets every second Wednesday morning. Each group decides what the topics will be. Both classes are held in the Library. The first Wednesday meeting is on September 26th at 10:30AM. The first Tuesday meeting is on October 2nd at 7:30PM.
ALTAR LINEN CARE
We are in need of more ladies to help wash & iron the altar linens. This is a very worthwhile spiritual work of mercy and an honour to prepare the linens for Holy Mass. If you can spare one turn a month or every six weeks to help in this ministry please call Marie at 416-221-8866.
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD
This liturgy, which is for children 4 – 10 years old, will begin on Sunday, September 23 at the 10:30AM Mass. We are in need of volunteers to help us interpret the readings through discussion and activities. If you are interested then call Tim Lychy at 416-953-0555 or email: email@example.com
PREPARING FOR A PROVINCIAL ELECTION – A CATHOLIC PERSPECTIVE
A provincial election will be held in Ontario on Wednesday, October 10, 2007. All those who are eligible to vote are encouraged to exercise their democratic right to do so. In the coming days, Catholics are asked to take an active role in learning more about the candidates seeking election in their riding, the views of political parties, and how they will impact our community. A number of resources have been prepared to help Catholics reflect on the important role we play in choosing those who will lead our province. You may access these resources by visiting the Archdiocese of Toronto website at: www.archtoronto.org
