Papal Visit – This summer in response to requests from various groups of people Pope Francis came to Canada and made a few stops in various places so as to encounter Indigenous, Metis and Innu Peoples. His talks and homilies are available to us, and they provide us with a rich treasure of ideas, actions and principles to further our reconciliation as God’s people. I encourage you to make use of these resources to help grow the spirit of reconciliation in our hearts and in our communities! These works can be found at: https://www.cccb.ca/indigenous-peoples/pope-francis-penitential-pilgrimage/speeches/

Please join us for some good food and visiting. Please take precautions if you are sick or feel vulnerable as Covid and various flus are circulating.

DIOCESAN NEWS & BEYOND
War in Ukraine – Our Oblates working in the Ukraine are asking us for help as they struggle to help feed the people who come to their door. The devastation of the cities is visible, and the needs of the people are many. Often those who are able, have fled the cities to fight or to make a new temporary home elsewhere. At the Oblate houses in Obukhiv and Tyvriv they try to provide food and shelter for as many people as they can. If you have the resources to help them Fr. Witalij Podolan, OMI and his Oblate companions would be so grateful. Fr. Witalij shares how hard it is for them to turn people away when they run out of food. You can make a donation on-line through our Mission website: www.omilacombe.ca/mami/donations ; E-transfer to email@example.com. Call our office directly 1-866-432-6264; send a cheque payable to AMMI Lacombe Canada MAMI or bring to Parish Office. Mail to 601 Taylor Street West, Saskatoon, SK S7M 0C9. Income tax receipts are available for all donations. Please see the Poster at the back of the Church for further information.
