Reading I                             Genesis 9.8-15

Responsorial Psalm:             Your paths, Lord, are love and faithfulness for those who keep

                                             your covenant.

Reading II                            1 Peter 3.18-22

Gospel:                                Mark 1.12-15


·                         The wilderness is the place of destruction and danger, of being tempted off one’s path and also of meeting God.  Jesus finds God’s path for him in the wilderness.

·                         Prayer is a wilderness time.  It can be dangerous for it brings us in touch with the evil as well as with the good in ourselves.  With practice, it introduces us to the peace of God in Christ – the harmony of the desert of Jesus.  It is also the place of rededication to God and of finding the strength of God.

The St. Aloysius Murder Mystery evening was a resounding success, great fun was had by all! In total over the 2 evenings, 185 guests attended the return of this well-loved event. The organizing committee, actors and backstage crew, would like to thank all who supported this event. Special thanks are extended to Shannon and Louise Lortie, Susan Arnold, Mary Jane Champagne and Ghislaine Cook  who did a fantastic job taking care of the front of the house, taking tickets, serving desserts, coffee and tea and generally making sure our guests were comfortable. Also we thank all who provided us with wonderful desserts for both evenings; Mary Jane Champagne, Susan Arnold, Patricia Nicholas, Vera Brumm, Lorraine Whitworth, Alice Burich, Shirley Quinn, Margaret Paiement, Erma Avon, Louise MacMillan, Gail Nadeau, Ghislaine Cook, Barbara Morey, Clare Chamaillard, Mary Daly, Theresa Lalonde, Rita Lacelle, Marilyn Ross, Marie Desmarais & Joe McCarthy, Joanne Lambert, Nancy Grenier, Diane Joanisse, Shannon Lortie and Louise Lortie.   We could not have done it without all of you.  Thank you.
