We thank Rick for his contributions to the parish, his friendship and his faith and we assure him of our prayers as he deals with his declining health. May the Spirit of the Lord be upon you, blessing you and granting you peace!
Fr. Doug’s Retreat for Sisters (Mississauga, ON) – As you know I recently preached an 8-day retreat for a group of about 30 sisters from various religious communities who live and work in Southern Ontario. The theme was Prayer. I used the Gospel of St. Luke and the Synod dynamics of Listening, Participation and Mission to inform the reflections I offered. Each day had its own theme. The themes included: Welcoming, Being Shaped, Action, Personal Relationship, Suffering, Resurrection and New life and Receiving and Giving Thanks. The themes were developed in the two 45-minute daily conferences and in the extended homily that I offered during the daily mass. We had some activities in the evenings including Adoration, Taize Prayer, Reconciliation and on the last night we watched an inspirational movie. We celebrated mass every day and the sisters had the opportunity to chat with me for 30 minutes or so during the retreat. Just before the end of the retreat we celebrated the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick at the daily mass. The setting and the facilities were beautiful, the food was amazing, and the sisters were great examples of faith in action. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I walked away with a sense of gratitude for what God was doing among us. A bonus was the discovery that some of the sisters had roots in Saskatchewan. 😊

Emeritus Bishop Albert Thevenot, M. Afr., Emeritus Archbishop Sylvain Lavoie, OMI and I, Fr. Doug Jeffrey, OMI will be available to pray with and for people or to just listen and visit. We will also be available to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation and/or the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. We will have some traditional practices – the lighting of the fire, smudging, drumming along with the rosary, an evening prayer, some gospel singing and other prayer rituals as the day unfolds. We will also have some snacks and refreshments and an evening meal of chili/stew and Bannock. This day is the result of our listening to the people of our community as they spoke of their needs, and it has been prepared and organized by the people of the community. Please pray for us as we gather as the Body of Christ, intent on living out our mission of love and forgiveness as shared with us in and through the Holy Spirit!
