Chaplains’ upcoming event:

Padre Leclerc’s absence:
In a follow up to what has been written above, Fr. Marek Paczka has gracefully accepted to preside Mass for our community on 4 June 2017. Please note the time: 1200 (noon).
On the 11 June, our community will have a Celebration of the Word.
I have been elected on the Presbyteral Counsel of the Military Ordinariate of Canada. I also have been elected president of the Counsel. Please pray for me, as I am a bit concerned about this nomination. As you already know:
* I am not (always) politically correct,
* I tend to tell things the way I see it, and
* I don’t like nonsense.
So please, please, please!! Keep me in your prayers because, to be honest, I am not sure what I am getting into.
Did you know that…
- The Catholic Church consists of more than just the Roman Catholic Church. There are 22 Eastern Rites that are in full communion with Rome and although they go by different names, they are every bit as much a part of the Catholic Church.
