Jesus is the light of the world. As he gave sight to the blind beggar without being asked, so he heals our blindness. Like the blind man’s healing and David’s anointing , our gift of faith and baptism are unmerited. The beggar’s sight was restored by washing in the pool; our baptismal washing is a sacramentally effective sign of the vision which faith alone gives. Yet full understanding comes slowly. The beggar became a type of the faithful Christian when he witnessed steadfastly to Christ even before he had actually seen him. Jesus seeks him out and reveals his full identity; the beggar is then ready to respond, “ Lord, I do believe!” The letter to the Ephesians tells us that, if we are children of light, we will learn to view life as God does. Our entire behaviour will be affected. The good shepherd psalm assures that God will be with us even on our dark days. May we be light to all who are blind, our witnesses to Christ, the Light.


 We have received approval to proceed with the paving of the parking lot to the west of the church. This will provide us with an additional 76 parking spots. A sketch will be posted shortly in the Narthex of what the parking lot will look like. We have started submission of applications to the city for the permits to proceed. We expect to receive these permits by mid April at which time we will go out to tender for construction. We expect the construction to occur during the summer and look to have it completed by the end of September. 


The Feast of St. Joseph’s will be celebrated this year on March 20th (since March 19th falls on a Lenten Sunday). There will be 2 Masses, both of which will be followed by a small reception in the Hall, at 9: 00 am and 7:30 pm.

Holy Eucharist – Transportation


Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.

They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.

Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
