REFLECTION

Easter is the greatest and the most important feast in the Church. It marks the birthday of our eternal hope. “Easter” literally means “The feast of fresh flowers.” We celebrate it with pride and jubilation for 3 reasons: 1) The resurrection of Christ is the basis of our Christian Faith. 2) Easter is the guarantee of our own resurrection. 3) Easter is a feast which gives us hope and encouragement. In a world of pain, sorrows and tears, Easter reminds us that life is worth living.

MANRESA JESUIT SPIRTUAL RENEWAL CENTRE

Monday, April 25, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

A day of reflection for men and women. In our environment of growing social polarization and division, in which our Christian faith is so often used as fuel for such polarization and divisions, many people see our faith in Christ as overly-defensive, political and life-depleting. But our faith in Christ was born to be life-giving, as we have been experiencing this Easter season. This day will include talks given by Fr. Trevor Scott, SJ, Reconciliation Service, confessions available and plenty of time for private prayer and to walk our grounds. Included is lunch and break. The day ends with Mass.

Suggested offering: $50.00 per person.

Thank you for supporting ShareLife!

DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY, April 24th

The NOVENA began on Good Friday and continues through to Saturday, April 23rd.

Regarding DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY, Jesus’ words, “The soul that will go to confession and receive Holy Communion on that day* shall obtain COMPLETE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND PUNISHMENT”, speak of a gift of grace equalled only by that of Holy Baptism.

To receive this most singular grace, we must also

  1. Have performed some act of mercy
  2. Contemplate, on that day, the Mystery of Redemption as the greatest revelation of Divine Mercy towards us.
  3. ASK for this very special grace.
  4. COMPLETELY TRUST JESUS.

*Note: A good Confession up to a few weeks in advance suffices, assuming one remains in the state of grace.

Find INFORMATION and NOVENA PAMPHLETS at the Church exits.

YOUTH MINISTRY

Happy EASTER! Thank You Lord!!!

Though HS Foundations did not find a virtual platform, EDGE continued virtually from 2020 to 2022. Some topics that were covered: pray for the dead; the Saints in heaven, an ADVENTure walk from Nazareth to Bethlehem, give a Spiritual Bouquet, the Crown of Thorns….

On April 8th, the 2nd in-person EDGE Night of 2022, EDGErs will pray and colour a Stations of the Cross booklet to keep.

Please pray for the Youth.
