Mass and Bad Weather

A reminder that when bad weather strikes you should not come to Mass. During the
week, if Kitchener SCHOOL BUSES are cancelled, then WEEKDAY MASSES are cancelled and the office is closed. On the weekend, if the roads are dangerous, and especially if CITY BUSES are not running, then you should not be risking your life or the lives of others by attempting to come to church. (You can find out if buses are cancelled by listening to AM 570 News or online at

World Day of Prayer

On Friday March 1 we join our voices in prayer with Christians throughout the world. World Day of Prayer began as a grassroots women’s mission movement in the 19th century and continues to unite people today. This year’s prayer service was prepared by the women of Slovenia and has the theme “Come – Everything is Ready!” So Come! We are ready to pray together for justice in our world. Join our brothers and sisters from the local ecumenical churches, here at St. Francis Parish at 2pm on March 1. Fellowship will follow in the hall. A free will offering will be taken up for the women of Slovenia.

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Parish

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred… let me sow Love.
Where there is injury… Pardon.
Where there is doubt… Faith.
Where there is despair… Hope.
Where there is darkness… Light.
And where there is sadness… Joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen

~ St. Francis of Assisi
