Niech Bedzie Pochwalony Jezus Chrytsus! Praise be Jesus Christ!

This Sunday we return to the Ordinary Time of the liturgical calendar year with the green colour of vestments that will continue all the way to Advent.

God’s Word to us tells of the sufferings of the prophet Jeremiah with the Lord assisting him. Jesus, in the gospel, tells us not to fear those who kill the body but rather those that can kill the soul that will lead to eternal punishment and loss.

I want to thank all our parishioners who volunteered their time and labour these two past weeks in food preparations, decorating and in promoting our St. John’s Day Dance.

We were informed of the death of Judith Marie Poulaine (formerly of Mt. Pleasant St.and who often came to our church) and ask for remembrance in your prayers.
