Mass stipends. The priests have been literally swamped with mass requests in the last few months so please be advised that all Fathers can only accept very few masses, masses that will be said well into fall. Do not put any stipends in collection plates but ask a priest directly.
Ignatian retreats. There will be retreats this summer in New Hamburg in English and in St-Césaire in French. There is also some Ignatian retreats in English in St-Césaire during the winter.
St Joseph Bursary collection. Second collection in Orillia, August22. Faithful in Sudbury can put a second envelope in the basket, clearly marked for the St Joseph Bursary.
Building Fund for Orillia. Second collection will be August 8. The collection last month was $1105, and there is now over $38 970 in the building fund, as other donations are added regularly.
Live streamed Masses. Masses are now available on the YouTube channel “Transfiguration Church SSPX”.
COVID-19 rules. Please do pay attention to follow the provincial or local rules concerning the limitation of the spread of COVID-19 while in our properties. We do not want to have to stop saying the Mass because of carelessness that could have been avoided.
Adult catechism. You can register for online catechism (YouTube videos) by Fr Boulet. Click here to register.
Bookstore. There is a selection of books for sale in Orillia, but you can also order online at the Toronto bookstore and the priests can bring your order to your mission the next -1-time they come. St. Michael’s Bookstore here. You can browse the site, then email the bookstore your order and ask them to give to the priest coming your way.
Remember in your prayers the souls of all the faithful departed but especially Robert Weaver (2002), Rosalind Pouliot (2007), Janice Cartmill (2018) and those of other deceased parishioners and relatives that have passed away in August.
Prayers for the sick. If yourself or anybody in your near family is sick, you can give me a name and I will post it here for 2 months, except if you renew the request.
Eucharistic Crusade intention for the month. In August 2021, the intention given by the General Superior is: That Christian souls would shine with purity.
