“Toi, quand tu pries,

retire-toi dans ta pièce la plus retirée 

ferme la porte,

et prie ton Père qui est présent dans le secret;

ton Père qui voit dans le secret te le rendra.”

“You, when you pray,

retire to your most withdrawn room

close the door,

and pray to your Father who is present in secret;

your Father who sees in secret will return it to you. “

 

Other Events and Messages:

  • Our statues – I thank Jean Beausoleil who agreed, over the next few days, to replace the statues at the “Cénacle”. Thus, he will arrange them to make it a place of prayer where it will be good to meet there in complete intimacy and in good company, to implore the saints and saints whom they represent in order to intercede on our behalf. John also prepared prayer leaflets to accompany us in our meditation. In addition, a leaflet has been prepared to explain the meaning of “a particular place of prayer”, The Cenacle, inside our church. ** Prayer is shown on the left.
  • Financial report 2019 – Our financial report for the 2019 tax year is available at the back of the church.
  • La Forge Winter Carnival will take place on Saturday February 22 and Sunday February 23.

  • 2019 tax receipts: The 2019 tax receipts are now available at the back of the church. If you have any questions, please contact Orane. Please take them ASAP.
  • Children’s Liturgy:
    Thank you to Mrs. Nicole Otis who takes over the coordination of the children’s liturgy during Sunday morning mass. She will welcome them at the back of the church, on the right side. The children will enter the procession during the entrance song at the same time as Father Sébastien.
  • New members for the PPC. The results of our brainstorming session were submitted, as well as nomination tickets for new members of the PPC. During the next few weeks, I invite you to pray and reflect in order to identify people in our parish who would be available and willing to contribute from their time doing these activities. While some people would be more interested in being part of the PPC (stewardship and coordination), others might be more attracted to be part of a team or the other, the Word (1) Prayers, (2) Celebrated, ( 3) Announced or (4) Lived. I invite you to complete one (or even more than one) “Nomination Ticket for the Parish Pastoral Council and its teams” (yellow sheets), in order to be able to communicate with these people. These are people who, in your judgment, would be interested and / or able to perform this service. Once completed, you can take it to the office or leave it in the quest basket by February 23.
  • Registrations for the Sacrament of Confirmation
    Those over the age of 12 (7th grade) who would be interested in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation and who are not attending Cité des jeunes Catholic secondary school are asked to contact Ms. Orane at 335-3473. Preparatory sessions will take place in February. Please register as soon as possible. Confirmation will take place in late April or early May.
  • Sponsors – Thank you to the people / companies / groups who help us defray the cost of printing our parish leaflet by sponsoring it. The Leaflet is $ 20 / week and the Sanctuary Lamp is $ 5 / week. Envelopes are at the back of the church. 
  • Mass intentions – Church standards require that we not keep more Mass intentions than we can pray for a year. Thus, since we have an additional intention of Masses from the “Funeral Offerings”, we share the intentions with priests who have none.
