A request for your prayers

To all the friends of this blog:

A dear friend of mine, Mr. Gilbert Vaillancourt of Kipawa, Quebec has died suddenly of a heart attack. He leaves behind his three children, seven grandchildren and a partner, Gisele Sauvé. I ask you please to keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.

I will be away for a few days as he left the responsibility for his estate to me to handle, but I will check in here as often as possible in the coming few days. It would be an honor to pass along any prayers and well wishes to his family.

Thank you for any kindness in thought or action on behalf of a very good man and his family.


Fr. Tim

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
