Celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage
Are you celebrating a special 5 year Wedding Anniversary this year?
(e.g. 10, 25, 50, 60 etc.) If so, you are invited to renew your wedding vows at 10:30 Mass on Sunday, June 17th. A small reception will follow.
To participate, call the Parish office by June 11th, with your names, the date of your marriage, and contact information, or email the parish at: email@example.com
Sacrament of Confirmation
Next Sunday, May 27th, we will welcome among us Father Francesco Giordano, Vice-Chancellor of our Archdiocese who will confer the sacrament of Confirmation upon 29 young people during the 10:30 Mass. As a parish community let us pray that the Holy Spirit will inspire them to live lives overflowing with goodness and grace.
New Mass Setting
Last Sunday our choir introduced us to a new Mass setting. It is simple & 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 the Gloria, Sanctus, Memorial Acclamation A, Amen and Agnus Dei (Lamb of God).
“For I was hungry and you gave me food” (Matthew 25:35)
We have a new tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a more 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.
