Conselho Pastoral Paroquial (PPC) Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) As I mentioned in the homily last weekend, we are looking for additional members to serve on our PPC. If you have the ability to look at the current situation of the parish and then, based on the needs of the parish, to “dream” of what the pastoral programs of the parish will look like in the future, then the PPC might be for you! Como eu mencionei na homilia no último fim de semana, estamos à procura de novos membros para servir em nosso PPC. Se você tiver a capacidade de olhar para a situação atual da paróquia e, em seguida, com base nas necessidades da paróquia, ao "sonho" do que os programas pastorais da paróquia será semelhante no futuro, em seguida, o PPC pode ser para você! As we embark on the “Grouping” of parishes, a strong PPC will be essential. If you are interested in being part of the PPC, please speak to me. Como nós vamos embarcar no "Agrupamento" de paróquias, um PPC forte será essencial. Se você está interessado em ser parte do PPC, por favor, fale comigo. 2. 2. Dias de Planear Planning Days The parish staff met this past Wednesday to plan for the coming year. In order for things to run smoothly, this endeavour is essential. If you have any item that should be on the calendar, please call Anna at the office. 3. Rectory Open House Just a gentle reminder of the Rectory Open House. On Sunday, June 7th, I am inviting all parishioners to drop by the rectory between 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM for an open house. Come and have a tour of the rectory and afterwards have a drink and snack in the courtyard. I would like to thank, in advance, the CWL and the K of C for their support of this project. I hope that many will drop by! 4. Pilgrimage to Quebec Now, it must seem that I like going to Quebec! This coming week, I will be accompanying a group of Pilgrims to the Shrines of Quebec. We will be praying daily for all parishioners and I ask you to keep these pilgrims in your prayers! I should be home on Saturday afternoon, but just in case, I have invited Fr. John Sharp to be here for next weekend! Have a great week! Fr John A equipe paroquial reuniu-se esta quarta-feira passada para planear para o próximo ano. Para que as coisas funcionam sem problemas, este empreendimento é essencial. Se você tiver qualquer artigo que deve estar na agenda, ligue para Anna no escritório. 3. Casa Paroquial “Aberta” Apenas so para lembrar da casa aberto da Casa Paroquial. No domingo, 7 de Junho, estou convidando todos os fiéis a visitar a casa paroquial 1:30 - 3:30 para uma casa aberta. Venha tomar um passeio da casa paroquial e depois tomar uma bebida e refresco no pátio. Eu gostaria de agradecer, com antecedência, ao CWL e ao K de C para o seu apoio neste projeto. Espero que muitos irão vir! 4. Peregrinação a Quebec Agora, deve parecer que eu gosto de ir para Quebec! Na próxima semana, vou estar acompanhando um grupo de peregrinos para os Santuários de Quebec. Estaremos orando diariamente para todos os paroquianos e peço-lhe para manter estes peregrinos em suas orações! Eu deveria estar em casa no sábado à tarde, mas apenas no caso, eu convidei o Pe John Sharp para estar aqui no próximo fim de semana! Tenha uma ótima semana! P.
