FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Exodus 3.1-8a, 13-15

Reading II                            1 Corinthians 10.1-6, 10-12

·         You look for fruit, Lord. We are not in this world just to absorb and take in. It is our job as your children to give something back.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

            Will be held on Friday evenings at 7 p.m. during Lent.  Please come and join us.

 

DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE

            This year, the Development and Peace Partner Profile features a full-colour story in drawings about the communities our Colombian partner, the Interchurch Justice and Peace Commission, helps. During our Fall campaign, we showed how the spread of agrofuel crop plantations in the Global South leads to the loss of land and livelihoods for small-scale farmers. In the Choco region of Colombia, small rural communities have been persecuted, their houses burnt to the ground, and family members assassinated to clear land for these plantations.  Justice and Peace helps them reclaim their land and their rights. “Thanks to Justice and Peace, we have some peace,” say community members.

 

CONFIRMATION SESSIONS begin Monday March 8th and will be held Monday evenings for six weeks with confirmation happening Sunday April 18th. All those registered will be contacted with details.

 

FIRST RECONCILIATION AND FIRST COMMUNION SESSIONS

        Begins Saturday, March 13th at 10 a.m. in the church.  Anyone wishing to receive their First Reconciliation or First Communion this year must register before the first session.


ST. ALOYSIUS RETREAT

            From the positive reaction we received from the people who attended our retreat during Lent last year, we will be having another retreat this year on March 19th and 20th. Fr. Bob Poole will be doing our retreat again this year.

            Hope you will come and join us and bring a friend. Everyone is welcome.
