Niech Bedzie Pochwalony Jezus Chrystus! Praise be Jesus Christ!

“Come to Me, all of you who labour and find life burdensome”. At times, all of us may feel and find ourselves burdened with all the crosses of life. In the Gospel for this Sunday Jesus invites us to leave our burdens and troubles with Him and He will assist and help us.
As we enter our brief but beautiful summer weather here in Cape Breton, our attention turns to our lawns and outdoor grounds. I want you all to know the volunteers from our Property Committee especially Jimmy Campbell and John Morykot are responsible for keeping the grass cut and keeping our grounds so very nice looking. Special thanks to them!


TEMPORARY SUNDAY MASS TIME CHANGE: For the next several Sundays, our principal Sunday Mass will begin at 10:15 am as Father Rich will be having a special 8:45 am Mass in Big Pond where there will be breakfast served ($7) in the Fire Hall. He needs a little extra time to make it back to Sydney.
