Coffee Time

We are still looking for volunteers to donate baking for our coffee time after the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. Thank you so much to those who have made baking contributions!

Weekly Announcements

Any congregation member who wishes to have an announcement made on a Sunday is asked to give a written copy of the announcement to Canon Condo at least fifteen minutes prior to the service. Canon Condo will, in turn, make these announcements each week prior to the start of the Sunday service.


“Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord”, St. Paul tells us today. What is pleasing to God is that we be a light to the world. Each one of us is anointed, called, and gifted. What are the gifts that you have been given? It is through prayerful discernment that we learn to know our gifts, and how to use and share them in a manner that is both pleasing to God and gives glory to God. Use your gifts well! Be a Light! Stewardship Office, The Archdiocese of Winnipeg,
