REFLECTION

The Roman city of Caesarea Philippi was as far north as Jesus ever got. From there, Jesus turned south toward his final destiny, Jerusalem. But, before leaving there, Jesus asked the question: “Who do people say that I am?” It remains a question for  all around the world. Catholics worshipping at the Greenland Thule Air Base, 800 miles from the North Pole, will answer that question. At the tip of South America, where Cape Horn points toward Antarctica, the question will be asked in the Patagonian city of Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego. From Jakarta to Quito, from Africa to India, nearly 1.3-billion Catholics in the wor ld will be answering with Peter: “You are the Christ.” What then, is your answer? 


SUMMER BOWLING: Please be aware that Summer Bowling will be finishing up on September 19th. The Fall League will be starting up on October 14th.


VOCATION CHALICE: As many are aware the Knights of Columbus sponsor the Vocation Chalice Program whereby each month a family takes the Chalice home and prays for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. The Chalice reminds the family of our greatest gift, the Eucharist and the priesthood, without which the Eucharist would not happen. If any family would be interested in receiving the Vocation Chalice and praying for vocations in their own home for a month, please call Charlie Bernard at 882-2408.


BAPTISM: The next Sacrament of Baptism will be on Sunday, October 7th at 12:00 p.m. Those wishing to have their children baptized must register with the Parish Office no later than Friday, September 28th. Parents and Godparents of the children are required to attend a short baptismal preparation session offered by the parish. You may choose 1 or 2 Godparents, at least 16 years old, and practicing Catholics.


RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) Do you know of a family member, friend or neighbor who is interested in joining the Catholic Church or someone who was baptized Catholic, but has never received any of the other sacraments? RCIA is a process by which non-Catholic adults come to understand the Catholic faith. Participants meet weekly during the program. Sessions include prayer, scripture sharing, reflections on Christian life and learning about Catholic doctrine and practices. For more info call Fr. Molina at the parish office or John & Sharon Handrahan at 882-3432.

PILGRIMAGE to Our Lady of the Cape Shrine/Saint-Anne-de-Beaupré led by PEI Pilgrimage Ltd. is October 12-15, 2018. Cost is $390 for double occupancy.  Contact Gary or Eileen Clow @ 569-3945, Joe or Rita Drane @ 940-5871, or Ken Campbell @ 566-2914.

Thank You: The family of the late Cyril LeClair would like to thank everyone who gave Mass cards, floral arrangements, sympathy cards, monetary donations and heartfelt condolences. We would also like to thank the many people who reached out to us by bringing food to the house. The sudden loss of Cyril was made easier with the love and support we received from family and friends. Your expressions of sympathy were greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten. We want to thank the first responders and EMS for their quick response; To Fr. John Molina and other members of the clergy who helped and supported us during this time; to the West Prince Funeral Co-op for their professional and caring service; and the Tignish and St. Felix CWL members for providing the luncheon after the funeral; as well as the organist, choir, readers and pallbearers. God bless! Angela and LeClair family
