Our Weekly Parish Newsletter for Sunday, May 14 - 6th Sunday of Easter
"Jesus said to his disciples: 'If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever ...
The one who has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and the one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.'"
(John 14. 15-21)
Message from Fr. Mike for Sunday, May 14

Happy Mother's Day!
God is good … all the time
Praise be Jesus Christ … and Mary Immaculate
St. Philip Neri … pray for us
St. Eugene de Mazenod … pray for us

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.
May I begin by wishing all of our wonderful mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers, mothers-in-law and God-mothers, both here on earth and in Heaven, a very happy, and joy-filled Mother's Day! We are SO very grateful for your unconditional, unwavering love and friendship, for all the important "things of life" you teach/taught us, for the fine spiritual example you set for us, and for always believing in us and being there to cheer us on. You are truly a gift from God. While it is impossible to match your work ethic and your commitment to your faith, your family and your community, we can definitely, in your honour, give it our best shot! May God bless ALL of our Moms, as they have so richly blessed us.
As a mother of three very high-energy, athletic, risk-taking boys, and now with three grand-boys with pretty much these identical "adventurous" attributes, I kind of have to agree with Mark Twain here - while there was never a physical challenge that these boys would not attempt, (while always risking life and limb), that were enough to make me have 911 on speed dial, I did kind of admire and enjoy their creativity, bravery, courage, athleticism, sense of fun, and the ability to pretty much always land on their feet! Thank the Lord! Having said all that, I continue to pray for some grand-daughters - who hopefully will be a little less risk-takey (or not)! Anyway, Happy Mother's Day to Moms of both boys and girls!
Okay, let's see what's coming up in our Parish and around our Diocese as we skip further into May:
