    Advent - The Greatest Gift ! 
    One simple step that we can do during this Advent season to prepare ourselves for the two comings of Christ: Clear up the static. Sin, when left  unconfessed, can block our ability to hear what Jesus wants to say to us. Just as we hate the static on a cellphone call, we should hate our sins because they make it hard to hear Jesus. Clear up the static by celebrating the
    Sacrament of Reconciliation this Advent !

    Sign-up Sheets – Church Ministries 
    Once more, we look forward to the assistance of  our different ministries for our Christmas celebration; e.g., lectors, Eucharistic ministers, altar servers and ushers.  We have sign-up sheets available in the sacristy and (for the ushers) in the ushers’ room.  Kindly sign-up for the mass where you can assist, so that we can plan our masses   accordingly.

    Feast of Corpus Christi - 17 June, 2017 
    Nativity of Our Lord will be celebrating next year the Feast of Corpus Christi.  This all-day event will have activities and entertainment for the entire family. The day will end with a mass followed by a solemn procession through our neighbouring streets.
     Please mark your calendars.
