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

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.

highlights the key misunderstandings people have about the Eucharist.
In this powerful presentation, he explains the Church’s teaching from a
scriptural and historical perspective in an entertaining and thorough
fashion.

This is an absolutely brilliant outline giving biblical proof of the Real
Presence of Christ in the Eucharist!...Mike, Bogota, NJ
