Reading I                             Isaiah 49.3, 5-6

Responsorial Psalm:             Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.

Reading II                            1 Corinthians 1.1-3

Gospel:                                John 1.29-34


·         Somehow John the Baptist realized that this Jesus is the one to come. In the guidance of the Spirit, John has come to make Jesus known, and in Jesus’ baptism John realized – he knew in his deepest being – that this was the Son of God.

·         What we know and discover in prayer, in our hearts, is often difficult to share or prove to another.  Today, allow yourself to open your heart to what the Spirit of God teaches in prayer.

            If you are interested in having collections envelopes for either parish, please contact the office or one of your Wardens.  Envelopes are a convenient way to make your contribution to support your church and at the same time receive an Income tax receipt.  Receipts are issued at the end of the year in time for your tax return.



            Registration for the Sacraments of Reconciliation/First Communion as well as Confirmation have begun.  Please pick up a form at the back of the church or call Carol at the office to register. 819-663-5244.




            Just a reminder that St. Aloysius parish is a charity that is recognized by Revenue Canada and thus enables the parish to provide tax receipts.  Recently, Revenue Canada has increased the tax credit for charitable donations.  Therefore, your tax credits on a charitable donation to the parish under the present regulations could be as much as 50% of your charitable donations.

Free course at St. Mark’s: Empowering Mature Christian Disciples: Facilitating Adult Groups

Baptized in Christ, we all have a role to play in the growth of others in their faith, whether in our homes, among friends, or within our parish community.  The pastoral priorities for the diocese in the coming year call us to support laypeople to participate in pastoral ministry.  To help parishioners develop the needed identity, vision and skills, St. Mark’s will be hosting two half-day workshops (February 1, 9:30-12:00 and March 1, 9:30-12:00) on Empowering Mature Christian Disciples: Facilitating Adult Groups, with Carol Kuzmochka from St. Paul University. 


These workshops are relevant for all parishioners and will provide particular help for anyone in a leadership role in the parish (Parish council or wardens) or involved in one of the sacramental preparation programs, or who would like to lead activities for other adults in the parish.  The workshops are free and are open to all parishioners, so we especially welcome those who are not yet involved, but who may want to reflect on their leadership role for the future. It would help us in our planning to have a general idea of how many people will participate, so if it is possible for you to RSVP, please leave a message with the St. Mark’s parish office (819) 684-6926 or contact Julie Cool at .
