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!

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.
