Niech Bedzie Pochwalony Jezus Chrystus! Praise be Jesus Christ!

The Word of God is presented to us by Jesus as like a seed that is sowed. If a seed is to grow into a producing plant it must be nourished. We also need to nourish with the graces of the Sacraments the seed of faith that was planted in us at our baptism.

This week I have two trips to Halifax as I will speak at Father Michael Lund's First Mass at St. Anthony in Dartmouth on Monday. There will be Masses only on Wednesday and Friday this week. On Thursday, I will meet Father Igor Kozhydlo arriving from Poland and bring him to Sydney as he will be in residence when I am away.


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.
