STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS

Stewardship Reflections “…come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile.” MARK 6:31

Do you spend time, every day, alone and in silence listening to how God is calling you? If not, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with Him. Unless we talk and more importantly, listen to God every day, how else will we know how He is calling us? Consider making a retreat this year, spend some “alone” time with God.

ST. IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA: THE MOVIE

ignatius of loyolaEveryone is invited to watch the movie about St. Ignatius of Loyola on Sunday, July 29 from 2 pm to 6:30 pm at the church basement. This movie chronicles the life of a young soldier, Inigo (Ignacio de Loyola) who is forced to give up his dreams of Knighthood when he is crippled in battle. He starts pursuing a wild desire to become a saint-only to realize, upon being arrested by the Spanish Inquisition for heresy, that he must now pay the true price of sainthood: obedience to God’s voice, even unto death. For more details, please contact: Arsenio 604-777-0207
