Welcome back, readers! I hope you had a great summer. We certainly did, although the kids seemed pretty excited to get back to school as well. With the beginning of Fall upon us, there are a couple of important things from the parish bulletin worth repeating:

Time With God begins again Sept. 18
Our popular Time With God Programme begins again next Sunday, September 18th, at the 10:00 a.m. Mass. Children from JK to Grade 3 will be invited to the Parish Hall at the beginning of Mass for a Liturgy of the Word geared to their age and interest. They return to the church at the Offertory. Volunteer parents are always welcome.

Attn Gr. 2 Parents: First Sacrament Preparation on Oct. 3
Students in Grade 2 normally celebrate their First Confession in the Fall and First Holy Communion in the Spring. Ongoing religious instruction takes place at the school. Immediate preparation takes place at the church. We invite all parents to a Sacramental Preparation Meeting on Monday, October 3rd at 7:00 p.m. We will explain our parish programme and provide the schedule of classes and celebrations for our young people. Please mark this date on your family calendar. The best preparation is faithful participation at Sunday Mass!
