In the second reading, Saint Paul gives thanks to God for the assembly of Christians at Thessalonica, who were proving to be faithful disciples. The Gospel Paul preached to them, and the Gospel we hear today, is filled with the power of the Holy Spirit; let our lives bear witness to its truth and power.

Journey of Hearts and Hands 2017 Diocesan Appeal

The 2017 Appeal theme, Grateful to God…Generous to Neighbour, invites us to unite in the mission to serve the Lord through acts of charity and love as a way of giving back for the blessings we have received from God. The Appeal provides a practical means to offer help, and to support projects that allow us to serve people more fully. Your pledge to the Appeal will assist us to reach our parish goal of $44,000, which will truly benefit our parish by continuing to build our funds towards the church expansion project, and also the initiatives and programs throughout Vancouver Island and our surrounding islands. By now all households should have received information and a request for support of the Appeal. When you have made your decision, please return your gift to the parish or mail it directly to the Diocese. Please give prayerful consideration towards our Appeal and know that you can truly make a difference.
