Ascension of Our Lord parish
A Summer Blessing
May you walk with God this summer in whatever you do, wherever you go
Walking with God means…Walking with honesty and with courage,
Walking with love and respect and concern for the feelings of others
May you talk to God this summer and every day and in every situation.
Talking with God means…Praying words of praise for the beauty of creation
Saying prayers of thanks for friends and good times,
Asking God’s help in all your decisions,
Expressing sorrow when you have failed.
May you talk with God every day.
Amen. – Author unknown
We wish all parishioners
a peaceful and restful summer.

Our Mass Setting
Our choir sings the Mass of St. Frances Cabrini Mass Setting by Kevin Keil. It is simple and should be easy for all to join in. However, for those who would like to accelerate their learning, a choral version of the Mass is available on Youtube:
Mass of St. Frances Cabrini Mass Setting by Kevin Keil.
The parts that we are singing include:
Memorial Acclamation A,
Agnus Dei (Lamb of God).
“For I was hungry and you gave me food” (Matthew 25:35)
We have a tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a continuous basis.
Bring one non-perishable food item to Mass every weekend which will be sent to the foodbanks.
Donations can be left at the back of the church and will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s parish food bank. A list of suggestions for nutritious non-perishable items is posted below.
Keep in mind that over 860,000 Canadians visit food banks every month,
with over 36% of the donations feeding hungry children.
