“The worship of the Eucharist outside of the Mass is of inestimable value for the life of the church. ” – Ecclesia de Eucharistic by Pope John Paul II
Please consider taking time out this Friday, in prayer and worship of the Eucharist. For those who would like to schedule an hour to ‘keep watch’, signup sheets for specific times slots can be found at the back of the church.
Father, Creator of all, thank You for summer!
Thank You for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight.
Thank You for the beauty I see all around me and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy Your creation.
Thank You for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family, and for the more casual pace of the summer season.
Draw me closer to You this summer.
Teach me how I can pray no matter where I am or what I am doing.
Warm my soul with the awareness of Your presence and light my path with Your Word and Counsel.
As I enjoy Your creation, create in me a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for You.Amen.
Father Joseph and the staff of St. Cecilia’s Church wish you
a safe, healthy and joyful summer season.

THIRTEENTH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME
Living the Gospel by supporting at-risk youth
The single mother of Trinity worried about who might influence her daughter after school, given the presence of gangs in the neighbourhood. She enrolled Trinity in a program at the St. John Paul the Great Family Centre, a ShareLife-funded agency. Along with helping with homework, the centre provided music training that would otherwise be too costly. Now 15 years old, Trinity volunteers at the centre so others can benefit just as she has.
Please consider making a sacrificial gift to ShareLife through your parish or sharelife.org
Note that you may contribute during any week-end collection until July 28th and on-line until July 31st, the end of the campaign. We are approximately $5,500 short of our parish goal. (not including any on-line donations since last reporting). Together we can reach our goal of $36,000.
Let’s ” live the Gospel” and provide for those in need.
