Did you see the excellent article on one of our refugee families in the Toronto Star, last Monday? It was featured on the front of the GTA section. All of our parishioners who have shown such keen support for this work should be truly proud of our great success.
Thank you to all who made their thoughts known. The comments were universally respectful of the process and forthright. This bodes well as we move forward. On both sides of the question there were articulate concerns expressed.
There were a total of 143 submissions made. Of these 23 were in favour of building a new church and 105 preferred that we renovate what we have.
There were 10 submissions which did not in the end articulate one course or the other and 5 which were unsigned.
If people are not peaceful with the process, to this point, or the result of the consultation it would be helpful if they contacted us so that we may talk about that now.
We will accept the responses given in the consultation as sufficient indication that we will set aside the idea of building a new church for any time in the near future. There may be in the distant future a need to revisit the question, but we strongly hope not in our lifetimes.
We have now had three meetings with our candidates for confirmation and their parents. This is the year that the sacrament is shifting from grade eight to grade seven, so we have a double cohort as it were. We have 356 for confirmation this year which will be spread over six confirmations in May and early June. Please keep these young people in your prayers as we move to this important moment in their faith life.
