By their act of faith, the friends of the paralyzed man became the vehicle by which he was able to experience Jesus’ gentle healing touch.
Today, that same faith can inspire us to daring action on behalf of those in need and those who seek justice.
“The one who believes in me will also do the works that I  do and, in fact, will do greater works than these” (John 14.12)

Coming Soon!  Inspiring CDs and Brochures
We are proud to present a new educational opportunity called Lighthouse Catholic Media, a practical and effective program to help Catholics know their faith…to keep their faith. We all live busy lives. Finding the time to learn about our faith is difficult, but now we are able to meet you where you are!  Whenever you have a CD player available to you; in the car, at home, in the workplace, you can deepen your understanding and love for the faith. Soon you will see a display stand on your way into church offering 9 different CDs and three different brochures.  These feature some of the most inspiring catholic speakers; bishops, priests, deacons and eminent catholic lay men and women.  The CDs and brochures will be available after Mass on weekends.  We ask for a donation of $5.00 per CD and $.50 per brochure so that we may continue this program.  When these are gone a new set with different titles and speakers will be ordered.  We encourage you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

Lent Begins this Wednesday We are asked to take up the challenges of meaningful penance as expressed in FAST & ABSTINENCE (after 14 yrs).  This means not to eat meat or some other favourite food & the practice of moderation in all food & drink on all Fridays of the year.  FASTING (after 18 & up to 59) can vary from person to person – some a total fast, taking only bread and water; others adopt a vegetarian diet on a day of fast; others take only one complete meal.  Lent is a time of repentance – a time for more prayer – a time of discipline and sacrifice – a time to be generous and caring to the poor – all for the love of God.

A minister delivered his sermon in ten minutes one Sunday morning, which was about half the usual length of his sermons.
He explained, “I regret to inform you that my dog,
who is very fond of eating paper, ate that portion of my sermon which I was unable to deliver this morning”.
After the service, a visitor from another church shook hands with the preacher and said,
“Pastor, if that dog of yours has any pups, I want to get one to give to my minister”
