Thank you to our Summer Residents

As we look around today, we see many familiar faces and as Father Ghislain asked me… Joan are they all residents? Wow!  My answer was…yes of course Father … our summer residents.  Our population triples in the summer.

So today, in a special way, we would like to thank all our vacationers and our summer residents for their sharing and their fraternity in making our house of worship…our church…a full house. Please feel welcome in this, “God’s House”, as you make it your house for the time you spend enjoying your vacation.

We encourage your participation in our celebrations, and please if you have any special requests or would like to bring forth any ideas, or musical talents for that matter, please feel free to discuss them with us or with Father Ghislain.

So today, let’s ask the Holy Spirit to continue to guide us all to grow in love and fellowship to find the Kingdom of God and to keep us safe and healthy for the years to come.

TO ALL:  Please make yourself at home here in St. Charles Church.

(Written by Joan Dubeau)

My heart bleeds especially when I think of the children in Iraq. May Mary, Our Mother, protect them.

Pope Francis ‏@Pontifex

 

Moved and distressed by the humanitarian tragedy in Iraq, the Pope renewed his appeal in a Letter to UN Secretary General. Here’s an excerpt:

“… I write to you, Mr Secretary-General, and place before you the tears, the suffering and the heartfelt cries of despair of Christians and other religious minorities of the beloved land of Iraq. In renewing my urgent appeal to the international community to take action to end the humanitarian tragedy now underway, I encourage all the competent organs of the United Nations, in particular those responsible for security, peace, humanitarian law and assistance to refugees, to continue their efforts in accordance with the Preamble and relevant Articles of the United Nations Charter.”

Appeal by Pope Francis (on Twitter) and Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

Following the appeal by Pope Francis on August 7, 2014, and his Angelus message of July 20, the Holy See’s Secretariat of State has transmitted an urgent message to the world’s Catholic Bishops. In a letterreceived on August 8 by the Most Reverend Paul-André Durocher, Archbishop of Gatineau and President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), the Bishops of Canada and their local Churches were invited “to unite with the Holy Father in steadfast prayer to invoke the gift of peace from the Holy Spirit.” Catholic dioceses across Canada are already asking their parishes to include the Middle East situation in the Prayers of the Faithful.

Call for Prayer

let-us-pray-for-peace

Last Sunday, the Pope appealed to the prayer for peace in the Holy Land. This call is more relevant than ever following the tragic events of recent days:

“I invite everyone to unite in prayer. In silence everyone, let us pray. Now, Lord, help us! Grant us peace, teach us peace, guide us toward peace. Open our eyes and our hearts and give us the courage to say: “No more war!” “War destroys everything”. Give us the courage to take concrete actions to build peace. Make us willing to listen to the cry of our citizens who ask us to transform our weapons into instruments of peace, our fears into trust, and our tensions into forgiveness”.

Vatican City, 13 July 2014 (VIS)
