    PARISH FEAST DAY – THANK YOU

    Our Parish Feast Day Masses, Eucharistic Procession and reception was a wonderful success with many parishioners participating. Without the help of dedicated volunteers this day would not be possible. Once again our parish community has joined together to make this celebration a resounding success.

     
    Pray for Vocations

    All God asks is "Love one another as I have loved you". The world really needs to see people who are trying to love others with all their hearts. Priests, religious and deacons can be excellent examples of this love.

    If you are willing to answer God's call, call Fr. Chris Lemieux, Vocation Director, Archdiocese of Toronto 416-968-0997, email vocations@archtoronto.org, www.vocationstoronto.ca.

    Teams of Our Lady for Married Couples
    This weekend, members from the movement Teams of Our Lady will visit our parish and familiarize us with the charism of the largest international movement for married couples in the Catholic Church. The Teams of Our Lady exist in order to help couples discover the abundant riches of the sacrament of marriage and to live out a real married spirituality. The movement's founder, Fr. Henri Caffarel, affirms that "The Teams of Our Lady have as their essential aim to help couples to strive after holiness - no more, no less".

    If you and your spouse yearn for a deeper intimacy through conjugal and family prayer in addition to support of families who are working towards this goal, visit the website: teamsofourlady.ca and stop by the information table located in our parish foyer during this campaign weekend! "Let everyone see that you are interested only in the highest ideals" (Rom. 12:17).

    For more information about Teams and its growth in the GTA, contact Monika & Chris Matelski: at 416-346-2610 or sectorcoupletoronto@gmail.com.

    Prayer and Life Workshop at Precious Blood Parish
    Opening Session: Tuesday, August 22 at 7:00pm

    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 22nd, 2017 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: Jorge Escalante at 416-271-1823 or Maria Doucet at 416-839-1232.

     
    FAMINE RELIEF
    Canada's Catholic bishops have pulled together a coalition of Christians, Muslims, Jews and others to try to keep people from starving to death in four terrorism-and-war-torn nations – South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen.

    Under the title "Pray-Give-Speak Out," the faith leaders are urging Canadians to help 20 million people threatened with starvation. The coalition has until June 30 to raise as much as it can in the #ZeroHunger campaign. Money raised between March 17 and June 30 will be matched by the federal government to be used in famine relief efforts in the four countries. But the ongoing need in is such that Catholic charities participating in the campaign will continue raising money right through the summer. Canada's bishops aren't just asking for money. The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has also distributed prayers to be used at Sunday Masses through the summer. At Precious Blood we can give in the following ways:

  • Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website: www.archtoronto.org;
  • By phone through the Development Office - 416-934-3411;
  • Through the parish, making cheques payable to: Precious Blood Parish - African Famine – Humanitarian Relief
