    Pray for the Deceased

    Vincent Sequera

    Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen

     
    RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

    We will be starting an RCIA program in the fall.

    The R.C.I.A. is the process that welcomes and introduces inquirers who have felt the call of God to join our Catholic Faith. The initiation process is primarily for those who are not baptized, or baptized in another Christian tradition, or for those who may have been baptized in the Catholic tradition but have never been catechized and/or fully initiated (have not received Eucharist and Confirmation).

    If you are interested or someone you know who might be interested please call Ann Mullan at 416-449-9788.

     
    Prayer and Life Workshop at Precious Blood Parish

    Opening Session: Tuesday, August 21st at 7:00 pm

    The Prayer and Life Workshops are a series of sessions where a participant learns to pray with different methods of deep prayer, step by step. At the same time, participants learn to transform their lives with the help of the Word. Sessions include various prayer methods such as prayerful reading, visual prayer, and contemplative prayer. The Workshops help us advance in the direction of integral reconciliation, and present the Gospel in a way so that we may profoundly embrace the peace and joy that we are meant to live.

    The Workshop sessions are held weekly and last about 2 hours each.

    Instruction is free and materials have a total cost of $15.

    At Precious Blood Parish, the opening session of the workshop will be Tuesday August 21, 2018 at 7:00 pm. Pre-registration is now open!

    For more information and to register online visit www.tovpil.ca/ontario. You may also call the parish office at 416-751-2661 or your Workshop Guides: Rhina Rodriguez or Jorge Escalante at 416-271-1823.

    Remembrance Plaques

    Dear Parishioners

    In the back of the church in the vestibule area we have 2 “in remembrance” plaques which you can put the names of loved ones who have passed into the loving arms of Christ.

    Each Name you put on the name plate will be a cost of $300 per name.

    Each plate can only take a maximum of 2 names.

    These donations will go to our maintenance fund which will help up to purchase new kneelers for the church and improve our air conditioning system.

    You can take a blue maintenance envelope from your box of envelopes or at any church entrance and place the name you want on the name plate together with your donation and envelope number if applicable.

    God Bless you as we begin this endeavour.
    Fr. Xavier
