I am the resurrection and the life

Our world desires bind us up in burial cloths fashioned from our sins that block the will of God from our sight. By putting aside selfish ways and trusting in God’s love and mercy, we allow Christ to call us forth from death so that we might lead a resurrected life in the Spirit.

Pope’s special Urbi et Orbi blessing: ‘God turns everything to our good’. To access the Meditation from the Pope as written in the Vatican News, please click HERE.

During this difficult time the Church will be open during the office hours if anyone would like to have a private time to pray. Let us keep our church family, community members, and global family in our prayers.

During this time of isolation parishioners have asked how they can make their weekly donations to the Church. Pre-Authorized Debit can be arranged by calling the office. You can also drop off your collection envelope during office hours.

Thank you to those who have called the office to start pre-authorized donations, or dropped off their contribution. It is very much appreciated!

Holy Week will soon be upon us, let us be mindful of the sacrifices that Christ made for all of us. This was anything but a usual Lenten season and we have been challenged in many ways. We have seen some extraordinary works of mercy when neighbours come to the aid of neighbours! Let us be the light in the darkness and Christ to all we meet. May Christ’s resurrection not be lost in the headlines of fear but be the glowing light of comfort, redemption and mercy in each one of us!

Development and Peace Share Lent 2020 Update

During these uncertain times we are mindful that many of you are experiencing financial difficulties. Nationally, the Share Lent collection has been postponed. At this time, it is important that we support the most vulnerable members of our communities: the homeless, those in nursing homes, the unemployed, our frontline support workers and our healthcare professionals. People in the Global South are some of the most vulnerable members of our global society. Our parishioners have been very generous supporters of Development and Peace - Caritas Canada in the past and we are very grateful for your ongoing support. Please stay safe and stay well.

St. Vincent de Paul - Although it may be some time until you once again see Vincentians holding the Silent Begging crosses, we would like you to know that emergency food deliveries continue, with the need to feed greater than ever in our community. Please make your cheques out to Saint Vincent de Paul and mail your envelope to St. Patrick’s Parish or your contribution can be placed in the mailbox at the office door during office hours. Thank you.

Grassroots Kind Hearts continues to serve the homeless in our community during the COVID-19 virus. Measures will be taken to protect those who serve and those in need. Donations of lunch bags, granola bars and drinking boxes would be greatly appreciated. If you can help, Emily will happily pick up donations. Please call her at 250-287-3003 or email: emhepburn@gmail.com
