Ezekiel 34.11-12, 15-17

Responsorial Psalm:             The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Reading II                            1 Corinthians 15.20-26, 28

Gospel:                                Matthew 25.31-46


·         In Jesus, we are all brothers and sisters in the image of God. God is so big that we are all like God.

·         But what does that mean? This is the big act of faith that we will soak ourselves in during Advent, that God became one like us, one of us, born, lived, suffered, and died like the rest of us. The real God is found in real people.



As a member of my Christian community, I think about a project we can do locally to prevent bullying.

 A parishioner needs a ride to attend Sunday Mass.  She lives in the Pointe-Gatineau area between rue Pointe-Gatineau and Saint-Louis.  If you can help, please give Carol a call at the office (819) 663-5244 and she will get you in contact with her.  Thank you for your help.



            Next week, you will see a tree at the back of the church with pink and blue angels on it.  This tree represents the children that are helped with our Christmas Baskets.   Each angel is a child that we help, showing their age on the back.  We include a gift for each of them in our food baskets. We would appreciate if you would take one or two angels home and buy a gift for them.  Please wrap the gift and have it returned to the parish by December 14th.  You may leave them at the back of the church or bring them to the office.  Please do not include your name on the gift and make sure the angel tab is attached on the outside of the gift. Thank you for your support.

                                                                        The Charitable Fund


            If you are interested in having collection 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.





This year we begin our annual Development & Peace educational campaign with the theme  "Sow Much Love".  This continues our campaign against global hunger which was launched by Pope Francis on December 10, 2013.  We enclose in your bulletin an insert addressed to Development & Peace supporters from our Archbishop Paul-André Durocher.  He points out that our participation and solidarity are key if we are to end global hunger.

Also we are handing out stickers.  - a great way to bring more visibility to the campaign.  Backgrounders are available on the tables at the back. Read about the realities of living in countries such as Colombia, Peru, Haiti, etc.

More information will be in the following bulletins.
