Bulletin for week of October 16, 2016
One Sunday evening each month, all are welcome to join Cardinal Collins for Lectio Divina at St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica. We begin with Vespers (Evening prayer) at 7 p.m., followed by Lectio Divina from 7:30 to 8:15 p.m. The theme for this season is “The Freedom of the Kingdom of God.” This year, we will meditate upon nine passages of Scripture that illuminate the slavery we experience in our struggle with sin and show the way to freedom. For a full list of dates and Scripture passages, visit www.archtoronto.org/lectio. Each gathering is archived at this website. Episodes also air on Salt + Light TV (www.saltandlighttv.org)
Join us on November 8th at 7 pm in the Parish Centre, St. Paul’s Classroom, for a lector by Fr. Séamus Hogan on the unbelievable story of Christianity’s rise from Jewish sect to World Religion.
Born into a large Catholic family, Fr. Séamus heard a call to the priesthood while at university, and was eventually ordained by Cardinal Aloysius Ambrozic at St. Michael’s Cathedral, Toronto in 2002. After ordination he served at Blessed Trinity parish in North York until 2005 when he was moved to Merciful Redeemer in Mississauga. In both parishes he was intensely involved with youth and young adult ministries. After a couple of years, he undertook further studies in Rome, where he earned a doctorate in Church History in 2011. At present he is assistant professor of history at St. Augustine’s Seminary, where he also teaches priestly spirituality and assists in priestly formation and spiritual direction. One of his great joys is to share his love of history and spirituality with parish groups throughout the city.
St. Peter’s Parish is now accepting 2017 Mass Intentions for parish weekday Masses (Monday-Friday) and weekend Masses. Offering : For announced date $20 per Mass and for Unannounced date $10 per Mass. An unannounced Mass intention may be sent to priests outside the parish to be sent to priests outside the parish to be celebrated in the near future.
Due to the large number of requests for Masses, the parish has been given permission to celebrate Mass with multiple intentions every Thursday at the 12:10 pm Mass. As this is something which requires special permission from the bishop, the parish cannot accept multiple intentions on other days.
