Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids SNACK DRIVE
St. Patrick’s is happy to take meaningful action to help in this endeavour. Over the weekend of December 14 and 15 we will be having a “Snack Drive” after all Masses. Click here for details of the Event, and a list of what kinds of snacks are appropriate.
Did you know?
The month of December is dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. No, this does not refer to when Jesus was conceived; rather, it refers to Mary’s own conception in her mother’s womb. Read more here.
On Wednesdays, the Rosary is prayed at 5:45; Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help prayers begin at 6:15 p.m.; Mass follows at approximately 6:45 p.m.
Heart of Jesus Holy Hour
Come for the Rosary, Mass, Adoration and reflections Friday evening. Event starts at 6:15 p.m. (Note: Incense is used.)
Children’s Scriptural Rosary On the 2nd Friday of the month at 6:15 p.m., the Legion of Mary will lead prayers in honour of the Infant Jesus of Prague, followed by the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass (approx. 6:40 p.m.). The children and youth of the parish will lead the Scriptural Rosary at 7:15 p.m.; evening includes Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction by Fr. Jerome.
Fr. Poul and Fr. Jerome’s Daily Bible Reading has commenced. Check our website, bulletin, or Facebook page for the schedule if you have not received an email.
The challenge will be to invite two others to join you on this spiritual adventure; they in turn invite two others, and so on. No need to meet in groups or any church groups; you complete the readings by yourself. Important note: Ensure you are using the Catholic Edition of the Holy Bible which will contain all the books required for this challenge.
