Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) À la réunion annuelle du Secteur français en septembre dernier, les évêques catholiques de rite latin du Canada ont décidé qu’à compter du premier dimanche de l’Avent (2 décembre 2018), la nouvelle traduction du Notre Père remplacera de manière officielle l’ancienne formulation dans toute forme de liturgie publique. Plus précisément, la formulation « Ne nous laisse pas entrer en tentation » remplacera dorénavant le texte actuel « Ne nous soumets pas à la tentation », qui a été utilisé depuis 1966.

2) Congratulations to Cloe Gallagher, daughter of David and Julie Gallagher who was baptized into our Catholic faith last weekend in St. Joseph’s. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

3) Some tidbits of wisdom to ponder:

-Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

-War does not determine who is right – only who is left.
