February 2018

Fasting and Abstinence

As Catholics we are aware of the practices of fasting and of abstinence. Fasting is about how much or how little food we take in over a period of time. Abstinence has to do with the kinds of foods we deny ourselves (e.g. meat, chocolate).

Ash Wednesday

Lent begins on February 14th. The symbol of ashes is a reminder of our humanness and of the passage of time. Ashes symbolize our desire for God’s mercy and compassion. They are an expression of our sorrow for our sins and of our desire to resist temptation in the future.

Family Day

The 3rd Monday in February is a statutory holiday called Family Day. Schools will be closed, as will many offices, including our Parish Office. While it is a civic holiday it is an opportunity to reflect on the gift and importance of families.

5th Ordinary Sunday (Bulletin)

We're sorry, but Fr Sullivan was unable to provide us with his thoughts for this week.
Please see enclosed for the weekly parish bulletin.

Colouring Mama Mary

We are still accepting finished colouring artwork for our Mama Mary display. Pictures can be dropped off at our Welcome Desk after Mass or to the Parish Office during the week.

Edge Youth Ministry

Edge is a Catholic youth ministry program that provides a safe, fun for youth to find solid Catholic community, get answers to their questions about faith, and most importantly, experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.
