([email protected]) Deacon - Cyril Cogghe Pastoral Minister – Virginia Eade Coordinators of Youth Ministry – Dorothy deBakker & Christina DeVito OF ONE HEART AND MIND— Reading about the faith of the early Christian believers can be a real inspiration to those of us who have been Christians for a long time, as well as for those who are newly baptized. Can you imagine people of this world being “of one heart and mind” as was the first community of believers? Today’s First Letter of John seems to hold the key to how this can be accomplished. Keeping God’s commandments and loving all of God’s children seems to be the start of being “of one heart and mind.” We live in a world that stresses differences—differences among religions, among races, between genders, and among economic classes. Today we are summoned to focus on what we all share in common on this fragile planet of ours. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co. DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY, today, April 12th - God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others and also wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does to us. Join us as we gather in celebration of the abundant mercy of Jesus our Saviour at 3:00 p.m. at Holy Family Church. Please continue to keep Reverend Joseph Dabrowski in your prayers. He will be ordained this coming Tuesday, April 14th at St. Peter’s Cathedral as Auxiliary Bishop for the Diocese of London.
