Have you ever felt that you've prayed to God and not been heard, that he's not listening to you? Sure you have, we all have. So do we give up, stop praying? #FrJames shares the message of this Sunday's gospel, on the power of persistence in prayer.
Our coordinator of religious education, Mrs. Patty Collins, is looking forward to welcoming students, parents and catechists to a new year of CCD beginning September 13.

We're ready and waiting for the first day of school on August 21! This week our Parent Ambassadors, Mothers' Club, School Board and Men's Club hosted a fun night for returning and new families. The big reveal of classroom assignments and school supplies pick-up were highlights for students, while parents enjoyed the uniform exchange, TRIP clinic, meeting our new principal and chatting with friends. Lots of smiling faces in the photos on Facebook!
Our Missionary Spirit Team strives to identify needs and bring forth opportunities to serve those less fortunate in the parish, surrounding community and beyond.

Why not come to our next meeting on August 22 at 7pm in the parish center to learn more?
