Niech Bedzie Pochwalony Jezus Chrystus! Praise be Jesus Christ!
Dear Parishioners and Friends:
God’s Word to us continues to use as examples the theme of vineyard which was so meaningfull to the people of the Holy Land and the natural landscape of that area of the world. In the Gospel Jesus refers to Himself and the rejection and death that He will experience and the great consequences that will fall on those who reject Him.
This Monday we celebrate in Canada our national holiday of Thanksgiving. We indeed as a nation, people, community and as individuals and families have much to be thankful for to above all God our Creator. In this month of October which is dedicated to the Blessed Mother as Queen of the Holy Rosary, we pray a decade after the Sunday Masses.
