Pastor’s Perspective – April 11

Our Parish Goal for Together in Action this year is just over 52,000.00 If we have 300 families, or individuals, donate $20.00 a month from April – December 2021 we will meet this target. I would like to therefore encourage you to participate in TIA. I am so appreciative for your generosity in providing for the needs of the Parish during COVID. We are asked to extend that generosity to our Diocese in this specific way.  I am reminded of these words from 2 Corinthians where St. Paul, in writing to the Church in Corinth states: “Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” The word for cheerful is the Greek word “hilarion” from which is derived “hilarious”. May we discover a deeper sense of the Lord’s love through such cheerful giving. The easiest way to make you donation is online through the TIA link: https://www.catholicyyc.ca/donatetia.html. You can indicate the gift is being made on behalf of St. Peter’s and it will be added to our tally. If you want to donate through our Parish Website, please go to https://st-peters.ca/online-donation/ and select Together in Action as the Collection Option. Of course, cheques are also readily accepted and appreciated!

For those who cannot join us in person for the Divine Mercy Devotion, it will be live streamed at 2 PM on Sunday. Please join us.

In his Grace.
Fr. Jonathan
