A Father’s’ Day Prayer
Loving God, we thank you for the
gift of good fathers,
and everything that they do for us.
They show patience when we’re difficult,
offer wisdom when we can’t see the way,
strength when we need comforting,
and love at all times.
Bless them and support them in the work they have to do
protecting those who look to them.
Through them may we get a little glimpse of
how you feel about us.
As the pastoral year draws to a conclusion for the summer break, we would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to the many parishioners who contribute their time and talent over the year.
To the members of our Liturgical ministries: Lectors, Eucharistic ministers, Hospitality, Altar servers Choir and Cantors; our Sacristans, Catechists, and office volunteers: please accept the appreciation of the parish community for all you do for the Ascension Parish!
A very special thank you to Olga Overbury for her years of service as Coordinator of our Hospitality ministry from which she is retiring this weekend.
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.
