Message from Fr. Mike for Sunday, Nov. 13
My dear St. Philip Neri Parishioners,
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May the Lord let his face shine upon you
May the Lord look on you and fill you with his peace.
Something from the Parish:
St. Philip Neri Parish needs HELP with you time and talents and treasures.
To complete the Parish Directory, we need a TEAM to creatively design and lay out the photos and parish roster (of parishioners) to make our new Directory look colourful and professional. Please call the Parish Office to offer your time and talents to help out this important gift for all our parishioners.
We also invite each "Parish group" to gather your folks for a group photo for the Directory. A photographer will be available. We would love to include photos of the following groups:
All Choirs of both weekend Masses
The Golden Age Group
The Knights of Columbus and CWL
Parish Pastoral Council
Love Your Neighbour Committee
Art and Environment Committee
Truth and Reconciliation Committee
The group photos will be taken inside the church. Stay tuned for more directions in terms of date and time.
Praise be Jesus Christ … and Mary Immaculate
St. Philip Neri … pray for us
St. Eugene de Mazenod … pray for us
St. Kateri Tekakwitha … pray for us
Wherever you go, go with God … Whenever you go, go make a difference.
A Prayer for Ukraine
God of peace and justice, we pray for the people of Ukraine today. We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons. We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow, that your spirit of comfort would draw near to them. We pray for those with power over war or peace, for wisdom, discernment and compassion to guide their decisions. Above all, we pray for all your precious children at risk and in fear that you would hold and protect them. We pray in the name of Jesus the Prince of Peace. Amen.
Tomorrow, Friday, November 11, we set time aside to reflect on and honour the courage and sacrifice of the 2.3 million Canadian military men and women who have served our country, all over the world, in battle - those who fought for Canada in the First World War (1914-1918), the Second World War (1939-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953) - as well as those who have served since then, in conflicts and in peace-keeping missions around the world. We especially honour the over 118,000 Canadian military who paid the ultimate price, and gave their lives and their futures for the peace and freedom we enjoy in Canada today. They did their duty for us and now it is our duty to remember them and to acknowledge and to be grateful for their incredible sacrifices.
Just to refresh your memories a bit about the observance of Remembrance Day, it was "first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called 'Armistice Day' to commemorate the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday, November 11, 1918, at 11 am—on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month". In 1931, Armistice Day was renamed "Remembrance Day, and we continue to pause on this day, to remember.
Now, let's see what you will find in this week's Newsletter:
The Parish Office will be closed on Friday, Nov. 11, for Remembrance Day, but there will still be Morning Mass at 8:30 am on that day, as well as Freedom Friday, beginning at 5:00 pm.

Awakening with Joy and Purpose as We Age
Saturday, November 19
Awakening with Joy and Purpose as We Age will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, in-person at Queen’s House, 601 Taylor St. W., as well as online via Zoom.
We often find ourselves “sleep walking” through life, busy and distracted, unaware of important moments and messages which teach us what we need to live a life of purpose and joy. Meditation and mindfulness awaken us to conscious living, an awareness of the divine in everything. Major life events and aging plunge us into the second half of life where we become more aware of our spiritual journey, our life changes, and inevitable death. Are we victims or sages, giving up or embracing the mystery? Are we open to encounter the divine within, finding true meaning and ultimate peace? This day away will give time to connect with ourselves, other people, and with God. The day will include spiritual talks, mindfulness meditation and contemplative prayer, along with gentle restorative yoga. No previous experience necessary; optional poses for chair or mat will be available, choose to “simply sit with shining eyes and breathe the breath of life on our shared spiritual journey.”
Facilitators of Awakening with Joy and Purpose” are Diane Waldbillig and Elaine Zakreski of Holy Yoga. Fee: $85 onsite; $70 zoom. Registration at https://www.queenshouse.org/programs/
or call Queen’s House. at (306) 242-1916. Registration deadline is Nov. 14.
