12th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

WE HAVE ALL faced times when we have found it difficult to share our faith with others.  We may be afraid of being criticized, teased or even losing our job.  It is difficult to face these pressures and fears alone.  The courage to face them comes only from trust in God’s loving care.

     In Today’s gospel, Jesus sends his disciples on a mission to proclaim his message publicly.  He warns them that they will face opposition in the form of difficulties, persecution and humiliations, but tells them not to be afraid.  He asks them and us to trust in God’s faithful care and attention.  God watches over the sparrow, the cheapest life sold at the market.  He has also counted the hairs of our head, knowing whether they are many or few. If he cares for even the smallest creatures in nature and the smallest details of our lives, he will certainly not abandon anyone who follows the way of Christ.  He will give us the strength and courage to defend our faith in Jesus.
     Jesus is present to us in a special way in this eucharistic celebration.  Let us ask him today for the strength and courage to give witness to our faith by our actions, our words and our choices, by the way we live our lives.

Thank you to Jack Fasoli & Rick Fougere for installing the fans in the windows of the church for us last Sunday. It certainly helps to circulate the air and makes it feel a little more comfortable during the summer time.

The Glenn Hogan Memorial Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, 17th June and was very well supported by our parishioners, local community members and guests from as far as Vancouver, Prince Edward Island and Boston. We had 160 attendees which made the dinner and tribute to Glenn Hogan even more special.
     I wish to thank the Hogan family and all the businesses and parishioners who sponsored the event. Without your generosity, this event would simply not be possible. I am extremely pleased to announce that the profit raised at this year’s event was a record $6,259!
     My gratitude for their volunteer support during the event goes to Lorraine Hutchison, Brenda Capogreco, Donna Gautreau, Lorna Halderman, Lynne Fougere, Frank Hutchison, Danny Klimas, Brian Rose, Rick Fougere, Paul Goyetche and our youth/out-of-parish volunteers Christine Collins, Angela Arena, Cristina Frangiosa and Kaylee Bissonnette.
     I would like to sincerely thank my fellow golf committee members Laurie King, Antonina Arena, Don Jacobs, Tim Donnelly and Mick Mc Guinness for their hard work and commitment over the past few months in organizing such a successful event. Finally, a special thanks to Judith Sandhurst for being my greatest counsel throughout this event.
