VOLUNTEERS RETURN TO COMMUNITY SPIRIT

As of April 4th, Holy Family volunteers are once again assisting at bingos at Community Spirit Gaming Centre, filling three assignments this month and 38 more from May to March 2023. Volunteer duties include greeting customers and supporting centre staff and customers so that their experience at the hall is fun, friendly and safe. Holy Family Parish is one of 50 local charities to benefit from the partnership with Community Spirit and the funds raised help to maintain our property and support parish services.   

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Parish Rosary Hour will be held Monday evenings from 7 to 8 pm.  

 

Mary, Queen of the Holy Rosary, pray for us!

 


 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eucharistic Adoration takes place each Thursday from 1 to 5 pm and concludes with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All are invited to visit our newly renovated washroom with its new counter, cabinets and fixtures, fresh paint, and Covid-friendly features. Special thanks to Friar Jim for taking care of countless details, to Armando Sardinha for the design, and to Phil Stennett for many hours of labour. Our bingo workers raised the funds to finance the project and Ted Splinter donated countertop and cabinets. A wonderful project all!

 

 

 


 

 

 

Each year, on Good Shepherd Sunday (April 25 this year), the Church celebrates the World Day of Prayer for Vocations.  As revealed in the name, the day is an opportunity for Catholics around the globe to pray more intentionally for an increase in vocations to the priesthood, religious life, and the diaconate.  You can read Pope Francis’ special message for the World Day of Prayer here: https://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/messages/vocations/documents/papa-francesco_20210319_58-messaggio-giornata-mondiale-vocazioni.html

 

Praying for vocations is necessary, but insufficient.  Remember to also encourage young men to consider the priesthood or religious life.  

 

                1. Identify a young man, who you observe has the gifts and persona that make for a holy priest or religious.

                2. Ask—clearly and bluntly—that young man if he’s ever thought about being a priest or brother.

                3. Tell him the gifts you see in him, which are leading you to ask.

 

 

 


 

 

THE FATHER CHARLES GAZELEY STUDENT BURSARIES FOR 2021 - AND THE WINNERS ARE!

 

 

Johnathan Stennett for ages 9 to 13

Bronis MacDougall for ages 14 to 18

 

We thank all students for applying, and Johnathan and Bronis in particular, for demonstrating their love of the Catholic faith, and how it makes a difference in their own lives and in the lives of the people around them.

 

The Father Charles Gazeley Student Bursary was instituted in 2020 to recognize the contributions of young Catholics to parish life and faith at Holy Family where Father Gazeley served as pastor from 1993 to 2007. Father Chuck, as he was known, died in October 2017 in his 86th year and in his 59th year as a priest for the Archdiocese of Kingston. He was well known for his love for children and his care for their well-being and for his love for Holy Family Parish. The first two years of the bursary is funded from Fr Gazeley's bequest and one year by a donation from his niece.

 

 


 

 

 

Carlo Acutis, who died at age 15 in 2006, and is buried in Assisi, Italy, was just beatified on October 10.  Carlo, who was very gifted with using the internet and desired to spread the Gospel through it, created this website, a compiled list of all the Eucharistic miracles around the world.  He wanted to help build up people's faith by this means. You can read about each miracle by clicking on the city and the date of the miracle.
