Ministry Fair Today…Let your Light Shine!

Please join us for our Parish Ministry Fair after each mass in the parish hall. The mass will be shortened and no homily will be given so that we can visit the parish hall after mass where each one of our 30 parish ministries will provide an informational display. It will be an opportunity for us not only to give thanks for all the great ministries at work in our parish community, but for each of us to consider how we might offer our gifts and talents in service of the Lord here our parish.

Thank You…

…for your donations through our Thanksgiving Food Drive for our local Salvation Army Food Bank. Special thanks to our Youth Ministry and Knights of Columbus for receiving these items and driving them to the Food Bank.

…for your Humanitarian Relief financial support of those affected by the hurricanes in the Caribbean and the earthquakes in Mexico. Your donations of $9,660 will be forwarded to those in need within the month!

…for your support of next Sunday’s World Mission Sunday Collection. Since 1922, the Pontifical Missions Societies through the Society for the Propagation of the Faith has supported the temporal needs of missions as well as creating awareness of the work of the missions throughout the world. Some examples of projects include: building churches, pastoral centers, cathedrals damaged by tsunamis and earthquakes; constructing religious houses of formation and homes for clergy; funding formation programs for lay missionaries, radio and television production, audio visual materials for remote mission areas; as well as supporting pastoral work in various rural dioceses.

Respect for Life Month…40 DAYS FOR LIFE – Wednesday, October 25

From September 27 through until November 5, you are invited to join other parishes in Mississauga for a peaceful daily prayer vigil asking for God’s protection of all human life.

30th Anniversary of the Dedication of Our Church…

Wednesday, September 27 marked the 30th Anniversary of the Dedication of our beautiful church by Gerald Emmett Cardinal Carter in 1987. In honour of this event, we would like to replace our altar fixtures, which are falling apart after 30 years of wear and tear. We thank the donors for these original items, and invite a new set of donors to consider donations in support of a new processional cross, a set of altar candles, an Easter candle stand, and an incense stand. If you are interested in donating one or more of these items in memory of a loved one or in the name of your family, please speak to Fr. Tim.

Catholic Women’s' League… The General meeting will take place in the parish hall this Tuesday, October 17 at 6:45 p.m. for the 7:00 p.m. presentation of The Saint John’s Bible. This is the first completely handwritten and illuminated bible commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since the invention of the printing press nearly 500 years ago. This is only one of 299 Heritage Editions comprised of 7 volumes each measuring 2 x 3 feet in size. The bibles have been painstakingly printed so that this exquisite bible could be shared and appreciated around the world. The CWL are grateful to the Diocese of Hamilton for bringing the Historical Volume for viewing and for going through a Visio Divina exercise with us. The business meeting and a social will follow at 8:00 p.m. Come and see, bring a friend for fun, faith and fellowship with the CWL.
