Meetings will begin on Monday, SEPTEMBER 24, 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
For the past few years, Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings have been devoted to religious topics decided on by those who wish to participate. We have studied and discussed parts of the Bible, Church history, viewed videos, listened to tapes and read short but substantial books about Christ and the Church. On Wednesday morning, September 26 at 10:00 AM and Tuesday evening, October 2nd at 7:30 PM, each group will discuss what we wish to study through the fall. If you are interested, please come with your questions, your “puzzlements”, your concerns and interests about the faith (and sometimes doubts) we share.
For further information call Mary Landry at 416-221-8866 ext. 224.
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
For children 4 – 10 years old on Sundays at the 10:30 AM Mass.
We are in need of volunteers to help us interpret the readings through discussion and activities. If you are interested call Tim Lychy at 416-953-0555 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
CASSEROLES FOR THE GOOD SHEPHERD CENTRE
Your prepared chicken rice casseroles (frozen please) will be collected at the Masses next weekend for delivery to the Good Shepherd Centre. More volunteers are encouraged to get a copy of the casserole recipe and a pan and give it a try. For more information, please contact Irene Albrecht at 416-221-2791.
COLLECTION FOR THE NEEDS OF THE CHURCH IN CANADA on September 30, 2007
Each year the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is asked to speak out, give leadership, or provide
guidelines for the faithful on a wide variety of topics. In order for our bishops to be able to make proper judgments on modern topics, they must have the benefit of research and expert advice. Research and gathering information require staff, time, and money. Finding ways to provide channels to the Bishops from the people of God and ways of disseminating the thinking of the Bishops to the people of God also requires resources. Through the yearly Bishops’ collection for the needs of the Church in Canada, an appeal is made to all Catholics to be generous in supporting the work of their Bishops. In addition to contributions, we are also asked to pray for the work of the Bishops and to participate in and cooperate with the various projects of the CCCB. I

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
