TWENTY-NINETH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME – OCTOBER 19TH, 2014
WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
Today,
World
Mission
Sunday,
with
Catholics
throughout the world, we
are called to offer our
prayers
and
generous
financial support, through
the Propagation of the Faith,
for the worldwide mission of
Jesus. Your gift on World
Mission Sunday helps…
• People in remote villages, towns and cities through
the witness and work of missionaries and local
priests.
• Children, the elderly, refugees, the sick, and orphans
through the service of Religious Sisters and
Brothers.
• To bring the Gospel to the poorest of our human
family
• Catechists proclaim the message of hope and peace
that only Christ can give.
Please offer prayer for the work of the Church in the Missions
today – Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and Latin America.
And please be as generous as you can today, World Mission
Sunday.
Oggi, è la Domenica Mondiale per le Missioni, ed insieme a
altri Cattolici in tutto il mondo, siamo chiamati a pregare e a
donare con generosità, attraverso la Propagazione della
Fede, per l’azione missionaria di Gesù nel mondo. Il vostro
contributo in occasione della Domenica Missionaria Mondiale
aiuterà:
• Gli abitanti di villaggi, paesi e città remoti tramite la
testimonianza e le opere svolte dai missionari e dai
sacerdoti del luogo
• I bambini, gli anziani, i profughi, gli ammalati e gli
orfani attraverso il servizio svolto dalle nostre Sorelle
e Fratelli Religiosi
• A portare il Vangelo ai membri più poveri della
nostra famiglia umana
• Ai catechisti nel diffondere il messaggio di speranza
e pace che solo Gesù può donare
Vi chiediamo di pregare per le opere Missionarie della Chiesa
- in Africa, Asia, le Isole del Pacifico e nell’America Latina –
e di essere generosi nel donare oggi, la Giornata Missionaria
Mondiale.

THANK YOU !
Last Sunday we had the pleasure of Fr. James Wells, O.F.M.
joining us to say the 11:30 Mass. Some of you may recall
Fr. James. He was assigned to the Parish as an Associate
Pastor from 1995 to 1998 and usually celebrated the Sunday
9:00 a.m. English Mass. Many were surprised to see
Fr. James and recalled many happy memories. Some of you
also remembered Father's excellent singing ability. Father as a
young man studied at Toronto's St. Michael’s Choir School.
