Earth Day 2019
This year, Easter and Earth Day (April 22nd) nearly coincide.
You may wonder how time can be found in the busy and joyful celebration of Easter to mark Earth Day, or even whether Earth Day is important enough to warrant attention during the Easter season. The answer for Christians, however, is yes!
The Church has long held that the tomb standing empty on that first Easter morning did not simply signal God making all things new for humans alone, but for all creation. Just when people had lost hope Christ beat the bonds of death and returned again to walk the earth he loved, among the people he loved and died for. We are not Christ, but we are called to be like Christ, to continue his work to the best of our ability. Is not part of that work this Easter season the work of loving, caring for, and protecting the earth that God made a point of showing God’s knowledge of and love for?

We have quite a few Masses without intentions, particularly on weekdays. If you would like to remember a loved one in this way, or for another special intention, you are invited to contact the parish office to book a Mass time or the Sanctuary Lamp.
“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.
Foodbank Donation List suggested nutritious non-perishable food items:
- Oatmeal (regular, no added sugar if possible)
- Pot barley
- Whole-grain high-fibre/whole wheat dried pasta
- Brown rice
- Couscous (whole wheat best)
- Canned salmon or tuna
- Canned beans (chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans)
- Peanut butter
- Tomato sauce
- Pasta sauce in jars
- Canned vegetables and fruit (no added sugar or salt if possible)
