Happy Father’s Day to all our dads! Here is the June 20, 2021 Bulletin.
If your child will enter grade 2 in Fall 2021: Grade 2 is generally the year when the Sacraments of First Communion and First Reconciliation are offered. If your child will enter grade 6 in Fall 2021: Grade 6 is generally the year when the Sacrament of Confirmation is offered. If your child will be entering either of these grades in the Fall, there will be an essential registration meeting in late October. Sometime in late September or early October of 2021, we will communicate details of the meeting in three ways: 1) notice will be put on our website 2) notice will be in the weekly bulletin (found on the website) and 3) through the grades 2 and 6 classes at St Philips School.
St Philips & St Clares Churches open this weekend to 15% capacity – with the current provincial announcement, we are happy that BOTH church and hall (at St Philips) will EACH be open to 15% capacity starting this Saturday, (June 12), as well as St Clares Mission. St Philips Hall will feature a live-stream of the Mass with our recently upgraded picture! Also for those attending in the Hall, Holy Eucharist will be brought in by a Eucharistic Minister. Please register for the location of your choice by clicking the ‘Attend Mass’ link above.
To commemorate this Year of St Joseph, both St Philip Parish and St Clares Mission will bless statues of St Joseph this weekend.
On Sunday, May 2nd (at the 9am Mass), St Clares will have it’s statue of St Joseph blessed.
At the Saturday 4:30pm Mass on May 1st (the Feast of St Joseph the Worker), Fr. Bob will bless the new statue recently donated to St Philips parish. Here is an image of this beautiful statue:
