News This Week!
This week-end we will celebrate mass in Meadow Lake at Our Lady of Peace Parish on Saturday night in the Parish Hall at 7:00 pm AND in the Church on Sunday morning at 10:00 am. If you plan to come please be prepared to serve as a Lector - reading the scriptures and the General Intercessions.
Mass will be celebrated at St. Jude's Parish in Green Lake at 12:30 and at Our Lady of the Smile Parish in Waterhen Lake at 3:00 pm.
You may have heard of our efforts to build a Grotto between the Church and the Rectory in honor of Our Lady of Peace and to afford us some encouragement in these difficult times. It will be a small structure with an 8feet x 8feet footprint.
I have asked Rhys Beaulieu to take the lead on this project. If you would like to lend a helping hand with the work, please be in touch with Rhys directly or contact the parish office (306) 236-5122 and I will pass your name on to him.
As you know special projects require money to complete. Money is always in short supply and especially at difficult times like this. This project will cost us approximately $1500.00 to complete. If you are able and would like to contribute to the construction of the Grotto, please be in touch with the parish office. Any financial help you can offer will be greatly appreciated as we move forward with this project to honor Our Lady of Peace.
The feast of our Lady of Peace is normally celebrated on July 9 and it is my hope that we can have a special mass on that day to honor our parish patron. I am hoping that we can have the Grotto blessed on that day or very soon after that day if all the stars line up perfectly! 😀
When we do have the blessing we will make sure to respect the Saskatchewan Health Authority Guidelines and the Diocesan Guidelines for gatherings.
You may notice if you drive by the Church/Rectory four flower pots - the holes for the posts and a pile of gravel - for the cement...things have started. I shall try to keep you posted!
Please stay tuned for further developments.
Congratulations to Kendal, Avery and Brynn who celebrated the sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion, taking one more step in their faith journey with our parish community and deepening their relationship to our God! May you remember this day as your life unfolds!
