FOURTEENTH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME - YEAR A – JULY 6, 2014
NEXT BULLETIN ON SUNDAY AUGUST 10TH
BULLETIN PUBLICATION – IL BOLLETTINO
We are in the summer season.
Some of our parishioners will be
taking advantage of the warm
weather and leave for their
cottages
or
on
vacations.
Subsequently, we realize that the
weekly publication of the bulletin is
not necessary during these
summer months. After this current
bulletin of July 6th, our next bulletin will be published on
August 10th.
We will resume to the weekly publishing of the bulletin
starting September 7th, 2013. Please note that nothing
else has changed -- Mass times and parish office hours
remain the same.
Ci troviamo in pieno estate.
Alcuni dei nostri parrocchiani
approfittando del clima caldo,
ci lasciano per andare altrove
in vacanza. Abbiamo tolto la
pubblicazione settimanale del
bollettino per i mesi estivi. Il
sarà
prossimo
bollettino
pubblicato il 10 agosto.
Riprenderemo la pubblicazione settimanale del bollettino l’7
settembre 2014. Si prega di notare che nient'altro è
cambiato – gli orari delle messe e dell’ufficio
parrocchiale rimangono gli stessi.

V’invitiamo a prenotare sin d’adesso

AROUND THE PARISH – IN PARROCCHIA
As the summer progresses, we are still moving ahead with
work in the parish. We apologize for the dust that you find
on the benches when you come in. It seems that as soon as
we try to clean it away, it just settles in all over again. In
order to get work done, one always expects a certain amount
of dust to be around.
Anyone keeping a close eye on things will notice that the
trades are in and out with deliveries and all sorts of
goings on. The dust in the church comes from the work
going on for the accessible washroom that will be available
in the north west corner of the church. Just so you are aware,
that facility will not be available until the end of the year when
the inspectors will okay the work.
If you have a keen ear, you will also notice that the organ
has had some more work done to it. There is much more
to go in order to return it to pristine condition but we are only
doing a little at a time and we are a little careful because of
the effects that construction will have on the instrument. As a
matter of fact you will soon see it covered again because the
dust is causing it some distress – but it will still be used to
accompany our worship.
You might also be aware that we will soon be preparing for
the 100th Anniversary of our parish church building – the
parish itself was erected earlier and our present site is the
second location of St Francis Parish. We will be carrying out
some preparations to mark the laying of the cornerstone on
September 27th 1914 - think about it, St Francis was begun
just as the First World War was getting under way: Lord
make me an instrument of your Peace!
Although there will be different celebrations to accompany
our remembrance of the events with which our present
edifice came onto the landscape, our newly formed Parish
Council will be taking an active role in planning and making
known these events. An initial project was to address the
state of our formal candlesticks, processional cross and
Paschal Candle stand. We extend a thank you to all those
who contributed for the Centenary Candlesticks. A date for
their formal blessing and initiation will be announced in the
near future.
XIV DOMENICA IN TEMPO ORDINARIO - ANNO A – 6 LUGLIO 2014
We have been talking about our Parish Council that is in its
early stages. Now we can also talk about our Parish Finance
Council. This week we will be meeting with Mr James
Milway, the Chancellor of Temporal Affairs for the
Archdiocese of Toronto. The topics of discussion will include
the current work underway at St Francis and for this reason
Carol Bragagnolo and Mary Ellen Lynch will also be present.
The discussions with Mr Milway and the discussions with our
newly forming Parish Finance Council will be examining The
Pastoral Plan that was launched by the Archdiocese a little
while ago. You will begin to hear more about this when we
start publishing weekly bulletins again in September. Mr
Millway will speak about the Captial Campaign that will be
fuelling the Pastoral Plan and how we can work out a joint goal
that will also help us to begin to reduce the debt that we are
incurring with the renovation projects here in the parish.
I want to take this opportunity to mention that we are expecting
a guest priest to join us, once all the permissions have been
arranged. He is Don (Fr) Flavio Pace who works in the
Congregation for the Oriental Churches in Rome. He originally
hails from Milan and he will be joining us for a month shortly
after mid July. He is looking to improve his command of
English.
I also want to mention that I continue to make plans for my mini
sabbatical beginning at the end of August and lasting until
the first days of December. Fr Conrad will likely be the
acting administrator in my absence (awaiting formal approval)
and Fr Michael D’Cruz will be joining him in residence. You
have met Fr Michael at the different Masses he has celebrated
here since my arrival two years ago – where is the time going?
Before leaving on sabbatical I hope to have worked with others
to set up our schedule for the months ahead, including dates
for parents’ meetings for our First Holy Communion and
Confirmation Candidates. Check our bulletins and our
website in early September and pass the word around.
