HTP Connection – June 5, 2024

On June 20, let us honor YOU, our Change Makers!

Jesus has asked that we cooperate with his mission and you have stepped up! We want to recognize everyone who volunteers in our parish whether in small or big ways. Our “Celebrating Change Makers Event” is Thursday, June 20, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Mark your calendars! 

Parish Change Makers by Fr. Tim

In preparation for our June 20th event, we continue to honour fellow parishioners who, as committed volunteers, are change makers in our faith community. This week we acknowledge Debbie Brown and Liz Ditmar who lead in our Care and Companionship Ministry.

It is great that we are seeing an increase in our attendance at our three weekend Masses. I have been told that we are getting closer to matching our pre-covid numbers. There are some parishioners, however, who are no longer able to attend in person because they are now living in a Nursing Home or are in their own homes with health or mobility issues. The Care and Companionship Ministry is so essential in helping to bring a friendly visit and/or Holy Communion to such parishioners. Debbie and Liz, in leadership roles with this ministry, are very instrumental in organizing volunteers and in meeting this need.  Debbie retired from being an Educator and Liz retired from a career in the police force. Fr. Yves and I are particularly appreciative of their dedicated and heartfelt ministry. They keep us in the loop as to who needs prayer, a visit, or maybe the Sacrament of Annointing the Sick. Let us pray for Debbie and Liz and their team; that they may continue to be a bridge for our parish life to reach those who cannot be with us in person. May no one be forgotten or left behind in their season of need.
