St. Francis Xavier Relic (arm)

Our parish has been blessed to be chosen to hold the exposition of St. Francis Xavier relic (arm).  Archbishop of Ottawa and the Jesuits (CCO) in Canada have arranged for the relic tour as a gift for Church in Canada, closing our 150th anniversary. SFX Relic will be at our parish on Saturday, January 13, 2018.

We need volunteers for inside and outside of the church to help with ushering of visitors from 9:00am to 10:00pm on Saturday 13 January 2018.
Please reply to me and advise what time you can attend and help to usher the visitors to the parish.

ICON of the Holy Family

Our District 102 will be receiving the travelling ICON of the Holy Family on December 31, 2017 to January 28, 2018

Joseph Remedios PGK, District Deputy 102, has scheduled for our Council to receive the ICON at our Church for the following time:

ST Francis Xavier:               December 31, 2017 - January 05, 2018
Credit Valley Council:           January 5, 2018     - January 10, 2018
ST Faustina Council:            January 10,2018     - January 16, 2018
Our Lady of Mount Carmel:  January 16, 2018    - January 22, 2018
ST Josephine Bakhita:         January 22, 2018     - January 28, 2018

My request to each of you is that a rosary should be planned for each day the ICON is in our Church and that we recite the prayer that is travelling with the ICON, we have to promote this in the Council and  have every day a different Brother & his Family  lead the Rosary and prayer.

Brothers yes, this is a very busy time of year, however we can definitely sacrifice some time to pray together and prove the Principles of our Founder.

Thank you and God Bless,

Vivat Jesus
