Sister Briege McKenna, O.S.C was born in Ireland and entered the Sisters of St. Clare at the age of fifteen. Following her final vows and after suffering for more than three years with rheumatoid arthritis, she was transferred to her community in Tampa, Florida with the hope that the Florida sunshine would relieve her suffering. At the age of twenty-four, she was miraculously and instantaneously healed during the celebration of the Eucharist and some time later received, in prayer, the gift of healing for which she has become so widely known. In 1974, again during prayer, she was given a deep spiritual insight into the mystery of the call to priesthood. Since then, bishops and priests in many parts of the world have invited her to speak and minister at their retreats and conferences. Sr. Briege ministered to priests in collaboration with Fr. Kevin Scallon, C.M. for over forty-two years until his death in June 2018. She now continues with this ministry. Her books “Miracles Do Happen” and “The Power of the Sacraments” have been translated into many languages throughout the world.

Special Fellowship Sunday – April 7 at St. Louise de Marillac

Hospitality: making room for others in our hearts and in our communities.

At each fellowship Sunday we see our faith community so beautifully practicing the call to hospitality… where we prepare a place for others to be at ease.  So for us, our next fellowship will be no different, as we practice this virtue once again and personally welcome Sr. Briege McKenna to our spiritual home. We invite you and any guests to stop into the lower level of LeGras immediately following the noon Mass. Come and nurture the unique relationships you have formed and take a moment to form new ones especially with Sr. Briege, our guest for the week and presenter of our parish Lenten mission. Enjoy a cup of coffee or light beverage and some delicious home baked goods with one another. It’s through these “acts”, these personal encounters, where we experience the real love of Christ!

Please join us on Sunday, April 7 following the Noon Mass to meet and welcome Sr. Briege McKenna. Visitors and guests are always welcome!

Church Sanctuary Watercolor

water-color-of-church-interior

Purchase your print today! – Local artist, Tim Reidy, has painted a watercolor of our church sanctuary. This beautiful rendering, ready for framing, is available for $75.00 with a share of the proceeds going to Ananias Mission, a nonprofit that helps American and Canadian churches work together to help Syrian refugees find safe homes in Canada. Their work started with an effort to help 23 persecuted Syrian Christians escape the war and start new lives. Through a partnership with the Diocese of Saint Catharines in Ontario, Ananias Mission was able to bring these Syrian families to Canada through private sponsorship. They are settled into life in Canada, and they are thriving!

Ananais Mission continues to help resettle Syrian families with parishes in the Diocese of Saint Catharines. This is only possible through the financial support of churches like Saint Louise de Marillac. Right now, there are many refugee families waiting for their chance to begin a new and peaceful life in Canada, and by purchasing a print you are helping Ananias Mission be the hands and feet of Christ to people in a desperate situation. Please stop by the parish office to purchase your limited edition print!

*$50 of the purchase price is tax deductible

Liturgy of the Hours

liturgy_of_the_hours

Liturgy of the Hours is the official prayer of the Church and radiates from the daily sacrifice of the Eucharist to sanctify all hours of work and prayer. We gather in church at 8:30am before the Tuesday 9:00am Mass, and on Wednesday after the 9:00am Mass. Easy to follow booklets are provided. Consider joining us in prayer this week!

“I will pray to you, O Lord, you will hear my voice in the morning; I will stand before you in the morning and gaze on you” (Ps 5:45).
