TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

September 24/25, 2011

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Ezekiel 18.25-28

Responsorial Psalm:             Lord, be mindful of your mercy.

Reading II                            Philippians 2.1-11

Gospel:                                Matthew 21.28-32

 

·         We all want more than talk.  We look for integrity in our lives and in the lives of others.  We find it hard to live with hypocrisy.  Jesus seems to accept that we will not always do good willingly.  This is spiritual and human realism.

·         Christian commitment is walking with Jesus.  It is being in the world like Jesus, bringing his attitudes of compassion and justice with us.  It is trying to affect the world as he did.

ARE YOU NEW TO OUR PARISH?

            Welcome to all who want to make their faith home here! You may have come from other places. You may have been “away for a while”. Be assured that we love to have you among us. We would appreciate it very much if you identified yourself at Mass. It would also help if you would take the time to fill out a registration form. The next time you are with us, you may leave it in the collection basket or give it to one of the ushers or to the priest.

            Welcome.

 

For our CHILDREN

 

Each Sunday (except special events.)
Come and join us downstairs for our Liturgy of the word with children.  We will continue with the Liturgy of the Mass at a level that the Children will find easier to understand. For more info. Contact Louise MacMillan (819-643-1156 or Donna Escander (819-568-1057)

 

 

 

DIOCESAN PASTORAL LAUNCH – “Walking our Land”

 

Every year, the Diocese “launches” into the new pastoral year with a gathering of all those involved in their parishes.  This year, there will be four separate gatherings. 

 

The English Zone of the Gatineau Diocese will gather on Saturday, November 5th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at St. Mark Parish in Aylmer.  The Diocesan Coordinator of Pastoral Care, Michel Nolin, extends an invitation to all priests, pastoral team members, including liturgy ministers, wardens and anyone else interested to attend this launch.  Registration is required in advance – all those interested should advise our parish Secretary no later than October 21st.

 

ROMAN MISSAL

            The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has received recognition for all sections of the English translation of the revised Roman Missal for use in Canada.  The Permanent Council has agreed that the first Sunday of Advent, November 27, 2011, will be the date for the implementation of the English translation of the Missal.

            Why is the Catholic Church implementing a revised English translation of the Order of Mass? The words are being revised for two basic reasons. One is that the contents of the book that we have been calling the Sacramentary have been expanded.  Such books are always published first in Latin, and then need to be translated into vernacular languages.  Now that there is a third edition.  The Sacramentary is out of date.  More significantly, the Vatican has changed its theory of translation.  It used to allow a free rendering of the words inspired by the idioms of the vernacular language.  Now the Vatican is asking for a translation that adheres more closely to the original.

            Although the changes will come into effect only on the first Sunday of Advent, November 27th, Fr. Gyan would like to begin practising the changes in the fall.

 

ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE TO SAINT-JOSEPH ORATORY

            To celebrate the first anniversary of Saint Brother André canonization, the Dioceses of Ottawa, Alexandria-Cornwall, Pembroke, Kingston, Gatineau, and Mont Laurier are having a pilgrimage to the Oratory on Sunday, October 16th.  The celebrant will be Mgr. Paul-André Durocher, Bishop of Alexandria-Cornwall.   For more information, please call Mike Budge in the evening at 613-224-8110.

 

 

NEW TRANSLATION OF THE ROMAN MISSAL

On the First Sunday of Advent 2011, we will begin to use the new English translation of the Roman Missal.  Over the last few weeks, we detailed some of the new responses called for in the New Roman Missal.  This week, we include the new Apostles’ Creed - the changes are in bold face and underlined.

 

 

Apostles’ Creed

 

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth,

and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died and was buried;

he descended into hell;

on the third day he rose again from the dead;

he ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty;

from there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.
