6th Sunday in Ordinary Time
World Marriage Day
“But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Lord, help us to remember when we first met
and the strong love that grew between us.
To work that love into practical things
so nothing can divide us.
We ask for words both kind and loving,
and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness
as well as to forgive.
Dear Lord, we put our marriage into Your hands. Amen.

A message from Archbishop Bernard Hebda
2017 Catholic Services Appeal
The 2017 Catholic Services Appeal begins in February and as the shepherd of this local Church, I am asking you for your support. The CSA is the way in which the collective ministries in the Archdiocese are funded. Your gift to the Catholic Service Appeal is restricted for the benefit of its collective ministries. The designated ministries cannot be funded on their own or by any one single parish but rather need our collective help. I wholeheartedly support the Appeal and I will make my personal pledge to it. I am calling on you to join me in doing our part so that these important ministries of this Archdiocese can be fully funded. Please be assured of my gratitude for your participation in the Catholic Services Appeal as well as a remembrance in my daily prayers.
