This Sunday we will be marking the Fourth Sunday of Lent.  How is your Lenten Pilgrimage going?  Have you given up something?  Have you taken on something new?  Are you taking more time for prayer and the reading of Scripture?  Are you giving more generously of you time, talent and treasure?  How are you marking these forty days of Lent? The Epistle…

This coming Sunday is the Second Sunday of Lent.  We continue on our Lenten Pilgrimage as we continue to focus on making this a holy Lent.  People will give things up or give things away or offer more prayer or offer more service (and perhaps many other things!) as a way of setting these forty days aside to awaken our soul to…

This Sunday is the First Sunday of Lent.  Our Lenten Pilgrimage began last Wednesday as we were marked with the sign of ashes and urged to: Observe a holy Lent by self-examination, penitence, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, and by reading and meditating on the word of God. As the world outside starts to prepare for the season of Spring and moving toward…

This Sunday we will be celebrating the Transfiguration of Christ as we mark the Last Sunday after Epiphany and look to the season of Lent beginning on Ash Wednesday, March 1st. The Transfiguration of Christ is the story of Jesus making his way up a mountain transfigured before them, so that Jesus was a glowing light in their midst. They heard the…

As February marches along, as the days get longer, as there is a hint (just a hint!) of Spring in the air, we Christians start to realize that the season of Lent will be beginning soon. It will officially start on March 1st, with mass at both 9:30am and 7:00pm.  Our Bishop, Melissa Skelton will be the preacher and presider at the…

February seems to be flying along very quickly. This coming weekend is the Family Day Weekend here in B.C.  A long weekend to help us catch our breath and turn our focus to those things that sustain and support us. In the Old Testament, the Hebrew Bible, passage that we will read this Sunday, there is a lovely phrase that God invites…

Shock waves were felt around the world as we heard the news that there was a shooting in a Quebec City mosque during Sunday evening prayers.  We offer our prayers to for the victims, their families and friends and the suspect in custody.  We pray for God’s peace and presence. For many of us there are shock waves as well moving across…

This Sunday, January 29, we will hear a portion of the Sermon on the Mount as recorded in the gospel of Matthew. It begins with these words: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Jesus’ sermon…

On Wednesday January 18, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity began.  It is, as the title implies, a week set aside for Christians around the world to offer prayer for the unity of the Church.  Currently there are approximately 34,000 denominations and groups within the world-wide Christian Church.  This is very sad and goes against Christ’s hope and prayer for the…

We are now in the season of Epiphany. The day of Epiphany is the day we honour the arrival of the magi at the birthplace of Jesus. We bring to mind the gifts that they offered, odd but beautiful gifts that honoured the spiritual understanding of Jesus’ birth as well as his coming as a monarch and Son of God. Gifts of…
