FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

May 1/2, 2010

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Acts 14.21b-27

Responsorial Psalm:             I will bless your name forever, my king and my God.

Reading II                            Revelation 21.1-5a

Gospel:                                John 13.1, 31-33a, 34-35++

 

·         “Love one another.” This was not an easy, sentimental invitation. Jesus had just seen his friend Judas go out into the night, with a view to betraying him. He had loved Judas with an unselfish love, but had lost him.

·         Lord, you know me, you know that I could act as Judas did. You know that I do not want to go that way, but rather to live in such a way that everyone would know me as your disciple.

TWO WARDEN POSITIONS OPEN 

            Roger Séguin (effective immediately) and Rita Lacelle (effective July 1) have resigned from the Wardens’ Board for personal reasons.  We thank both of them for the excellent work they have done during their time on the Board. 

            According to the Quebec law governing Wardens’ Boards, vacant positions must be filled within 60 days.  Should the Board not be able to find anyone to take on the positions, the Bishop may appoint persons, parishioners or non-parishioners, or St-Aloysius may lose its' status as a parish. The Maintenance warden is responsible for the upkeep of the church building, the rectory and the property and delegates duties to the caretaker.  He or she forms and presides over a committee to help in these tasks.  The Hall warden is responsible for the leasing of the church hall and the coordination of the use of the hall for parish functions. The Wardens' Board meets once a month for approximately one hour. The Board may have an additional ad hoc meeting for urgent matters or special circumstances.
If you would like more information, to nominate someone for these positions or to submit your own name, please contact Mike McCann at 819-669-1687 or leave a message for him with the parish secretary before the end of April. 

 

PRAY FOR:

Please keep our candidates in your prayers as they prepare for their Sacraments of First Communion and  First Reconciliation.

Saturdays will be 9 am to 4 pm (in the hall)

 

Please consider this invitation to join us and share it with your friends - everyone is welcome. Once you have decided, you will need to register with Carol Léonard by calling the office.

 

Thank you and God bless.

 

SUNDAY COLLECTION – It has been suggested to the Wardens’ Board that we look into the possibility of automatic withdrawal from bank accounts for the Sunday collection.  This obviously has its advantages, (you don’t have to remember to keep the right amount of cash for your envelope every Sunday; when you are away, your donation goes in anyway; the parish collection goes up....)  But apparently, persons who accept to do this have to pay a certain fee to their bank.  If there is sufficient interest expressed, we will pursue the matter and come back to you with full details.  Could you respond to the following survey, cut it out and put it in the collection basket before the end of April.

Name :  _______________________________________________________________

I would be interested in contributing to the Sunday collection through automatic withdrawal from my bank account.
