FOOD BANK COLLECTION: OMPH & St. Pat’s are collecting canned meat for the month of June. As always, all food items are gratefully appreciated.

TIME FOR YOU AND ME will meet on Wednesday, June 26th. They will have a light lunch and social beginning at 12:00 P.M.. Everyone is welcome to join them.

PARISH PICNIC: OMPH’s parish picnic will take place Sunday, June 23rd starting at 3:00 P.M. at the Knights of Columbus Camp. Mark this date on your calender to make sure you don’t miss it! Thank you to Findlay’s Guardian Drug Store for their generous donation to the prizes and Hearn Construction for their generous donation to the picnic food.

EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT: The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed from 12:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. on Friday, June 28th. We are in need of at least two people per hour to be in the Church at all times. Come and spend an hour in prayer with our Lord.

SAVE THE DATE FOR THE DYING HEALED PROGRAM: OMPH will host a Dying Healed workshop on Friday, October 4th and Saturday, October 5th. Two representative of Life Canada will be coming to New Liskeard to lead us in the weekend program of this excellent course, which has already been presented in various towns and cities across the country. The Dying Healed Program is a project of Life Canada which works to foster a deep and lasting awareness of the meaning and dignity of each human life and the meaning and dignity of human suffering, especially at the end of life, when the human person is preparing for their final moments on earth. The aim is to train both in the concepts of “Dying Healed” and to train volunteers to spend time with those who suffer, those socially isolated or those who are dying, so that they can experience the power of human presence and obtain some healing both spiritually and emotionally. This program is so effective because it is not complicated and it doesn’t require advanced degrees. It requires faith in our own ability to effect change just by being who we are and giving our time to those most in need. If we don’t reach out to the suffering, who will? More information will follow as it becomes available. You are able to register now by contacting Kathie at 705-647-6390.

CATHOLIC LITERATURE FUND: June is set aside for a special collection to assist the work of our Catholic Literature Committee who so faithfully and generously supply us with good Catholic reading material throughout the year. Your generosity will help continue this important educational outreach program. A special envelope can be found in your offering box. Thank you for your generosity.

ROSARY GROUP will meet for the final time on Thursday, June 20th after the noon Mass. They will meet again in the fall.


Catechism of the Catholic Church
The mission of Christ and the Holy Spirit is brought to completion in the Church, which is the Body of Christ and the Temple of the Holy Spirit. This joint mission henceforth brings Christ’s faithful to share in his communion with the Father in the Holy Spirit. The Spirit prepares men and goes out to them with his grace, in order to draw them to Christ. The Spirit manifests the risen Lord to them, recalls his word to them and opens their minds to the understanding of his Death and Resurrection. He makes present the mystery of Christ, supremely in the Eucharist, in order to reconcile them, to bring them into communion with God, that they may “bear much fruit”.

What symbols are used to represent the Holy Spirit?
There are many symbols of the Holy Spirit: living water which springs from the wounded Heart of Christ and which quenches the thirst of the baptized; anointing with oil, which is the sacramental sign of Confirmation; fire which transforms what it touches; the cloud, dark or luminous, in which the divine glory is revealed; the imposition of hands by which the Holy Spirit is given; the dove which descended on Christ at his baptism and remained with him.

What does it mean that the Spirit “has spoken through the prophets”?
The term “prophets” means those who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to speak in the name of God. The Spirit brings the prophecies of the Old Testament to their complete fulfillment in Christ whose mystery he reveals in the New Testament.

What did the Holy Spirit accomplish in John the Baptist?
The Spirit filled John the Baptist, who was the last prophet of the Old Testament. Under his inspiration John was sent to “prepare for the Lord a people well disposed” (Luke 1:17). He was to proclaim the coming of Christ, the Son of God, upon whom he saw the Spirit descend and remain, the one who “baptizes with the Spirit” (John 1:33).

HOLY HOUR FOR VOCATIONS: Mark Wednesday, June 19th at 7:00 P.M. on your calendar for our Holy Hour for Vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
