Chrism Mass highlights

Many of us travel each year to Hamilton to the Cathedral of Christ the King to participate in the Diocese Chrism Mass, where priests renew their vows and the sacred oils for the entire diocese are blessed and consecrated. As with last year only some priests were able to attend this year, due to COVID. The diocese has made available some highlights of the Mass which you can see by clicking the picture below.

COVID Reflection #2 – Fr. Paul

Fr. Paul Voisin, CR, our former pastor and now Superior General of the Congregation of the Resurrection, living and working in Rome, has been participating in a COVID reflection group online. Fr. Paul is now sharing four reflections that he wrote for this group, each based on a quote from Pope Francis. Every Thursday on our parish website, from April 8 – 29, we will feature one of these reflections. We hope they may help all of us who find the pandemic increasingly challenging to see how these times of darkness can lead to conversion and light.

Today’s reflection is based on the following concept from Pope Francis:

COVID as a Lenten experience of conversion

Triduum: A Spiritual Pilgrimage

Triduum: A Spiritual Pilgrimage is a beautiful, 30 minute contemplative documentary. This film cinematically walks through the locations of the Holy Week story, re-presenting the most important days of human history. Immersed in the real and sacred places of the Holy Land, the pilgrim faithful is brought tangibly nearer to the story, the landscape, and the reality of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

Triduum: A Spiritual Pilgrimage is the Augustine Institute’s gift to the world for Holy Triduum – available on FORMED and free for everyone through April 11.
