NET MINISTRIES
nd
rd
Is coming October 22 and 23 to lead our grade 5 and grade 6 students in a retreat called “Who Are
You?”. NET is a Catholic Youth Movement of young adult missionaries, bringing youth to Christ across
Canada. We are responsible to provide accommodations for the team of 10 young adults for the night of
October 22nd. It would be an AMAZING opportunity for families with elementary and high school students to
welcome two of the NET team into your house for the evening, hear their story, share a meal and provide
a “home away from home” for them. Please contact Colleen Hanley (842-3224 ext 23) if you can help with
billeting the NET team. We will need five households to say yes to this.
EUCHARISTIC ADORATION AND RECONCILAITION with individual classes at Msgr. O’Neil continue
this week on Thursday October 16th at 9:30 am in the Church. Please pray for our grade five/six class as
they encounter Jesus in the Eucharist and in the sacrament of Reconciliation. This is a very beautiful,
powerful and personal encounter with Christ for our youth.
SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday School has resumed during the 11 am mass. Children who are toilet trained up until they are in
grade two are asked to come forward when Father Tom calls them up at the beginning of the mass before
the Gloria. The children with the Sunday School leader and helpers will process out to the Father Langan
Parish Centre to learn about the simple rituals of mass and to experience the gospel stories in language and
activities geared to their age level. Children return during the offertory so they can receive a blessing at
communion. For more information please contact Colleen Hanley ([email protected]).
LIVING ROSARY PROGRAM
Thank you to EVERYONE who has donated rosaries to the Living Rosary Program in the school. We have
completed Msgr. O’Neil classes and have one more to go at St. Joseph School. There is a beauty about
having a unique rosary in your hands and being able to feel real beads moving through your fingers as we
pray. If you can help us out with any donations please drop them off at the rectory office. Our fabulous
rosary volunteers begin praying the rosary in the schools in October – please pray for us!
FIRST RECONCILIATION & FIRST COMMUNION INFORMATION
If you have a child in grade two this year they are able to celebrate the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First
Communion. We have begun our preparations for children to receive these beautiful Sacraments! Please contact Colleen
Hanley (519-842-3224 ext 23) to make an appointment to receive the information package and to register. If your child
has graduated from grade two and has not received First Communion or Reconciliation please contact Colleen Hanley as
well. Please share this information with your family members who have children in grade two! All registration packages for
the sacrament of first reconciliation and first communion are due this Friday October 17th.

DISCALCED CARMELITE SECULAR ORDER
A “Come and See” information meeting will be held on October
20st in the Father Langan Parish Center. The St. Mary’s Community
was founded by Fr. Dominic Borg and is based on the order’s
founding principles as set out by St. Albert. These principles were
adapted for secular communities through the OCDS Constitutions
for Canadian communities across Canada and approved by the
Pope. We are a lay community of prayer, committed to daily
reciting of recommended prayers and taking time to study the
Bible and the writings of the order’s saints. Through monthly
meetings, the individual is supported in the development of a
deeper faith life and a personal relationship with Jesus in the
truest Catholic tradition.
We have as our patroness and example Mary, Queen of Mount
Carmel whom we honour as Jesus’ mother. Parishioners who are
interested, are welcome to attend an open meeting on Monday
October 20st at 6:30 PM.
For further information, please call Deacon Andre at 842-3248 or
Kathy Myny at 842-4839.
