We are brothers and sisters in Christ who help and support each other even through our prayers. Every one of us could use extra spiritual support and prayers. Our new Parish Prayer Board found just outside the Adoration Chapel offers a place to leave your prayers. Consider also taking a prayer and join it to your own.

All Seniors are WELCOME to join...

Starting Tuesday September 20th

"These functional exercises are geared to assist seniors (both men and women) in the activities of daily living. You will work on upper and lower body strengthening, flexibility, balance and coordination through the use of music, balls & therabands (there is no floor or mat work). You work at your own pace -all levels of ability can be accomodated so if you need to be seated, exercises will be modified for you. All you need is a pair of non slip shoes and a water bottle. So come out, get active and feel great!"

    Life Chain 2022

    Sunday, October 2nd, 2-3pm

    Corner of King and Liberty

    Life Chain is held simultaneously in more than 200 locations across Canada each year. Life Chain is an easy way to join others in peacefully expressing our belief in the sanctity of life. Participants simply stand on the sidewalk with others. The organizer will provide a non-graphic sign to hold, and you may pray silently for an end to abortion and for those affected by it. Feel free to bring a chair, a coffee and good spirits.
