(Letter from Bishop Albert ) Restorative Justice Week November 16-23 CELEBRATING FIFTY YEARS OF SERVICE TO CHURCH AND COMMUNITY: Thank you to all the wonderful people who have supported the Knights of Father Bigonesse Council over the past fifty years. Success can only be achieved with your help! A special thank you to everyone who attended Mass and came the banquet and program on Saturday, Nov. 8. It was fantastic! Thank you to the choir for making the Celebration of the Mass extra special. A special thank you to our pastor and Council Chaplain for your support and all that you do! As the Council enters the next half decade of service, it is a great time of all men between the age of 18 and 118 years to consider joining the Knights of Columbus. You are always welcome! Contact Tom Sieben To all the faithful of the Diocese of Prince Albert Last Week’s Collection Regular: $1,945.00 Auto Debit: $ Auto debit is for entire month Sincerely in Christ Albert Thévenot, M.Afr. Bishop of Prince Albert Greetings of peace and joy as we reach mid-November with sporadic snowfalls promising us winter will soon be here! Restorative Justice Week in Canada is November 16-23, 2014. This special week has been established, I believe, to help us become more aware of wrong doings, of bullying, and of crime in our society. The Gospel challenges us to be forgiving, to be compassionate by extending a helping hand to those who have been hurt through the violence and anger of others and to share in the acts of Christ by being merciful to all those whose journey in life has led to incarceration. So, let us open our hearts to the needs of others by praying, by sharing our time, and being a part of their journey. As children of God, we are all responsible for each other and for the world. Let us bring hope, bring Christ’s light to others, and change the world. (Letter and attachment are on the bulletin board. ) PRO-LIFE: That God’s people may use their many talents to proclaim the sanctity of life in the arenas of business, media, the arts, and politics, we pray to the Lord.
