- For the next three weeks, the weekday Masses will take place in the church instead of the sacristy. **Please sit only in the front section**
On Sunday, June 5th we will have a Parish Meeting following the 9:30am Mass to bring us together to discern and make key decisions as a community not only as to what kind of parish we are now, but also what kind of parish we want to be in the future and how we can get there. This will include fellowship over brunch, and will end by 1pm.
What kind of parish do you want to build?
Tell us at Pentecost during our first Parish Brunch!
Helping hands are needed to make sure we all get fed – please contact Angela (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up for the Pentecost Pancake Platoon!
**There will be no 4:00pm Mass on Saturday, June 4th**
Let all the nations praise him in their own languages!
If you speak another language apart from English and French, we'd love to have you read a small part of the Pentecost Readings in that language! Don't be shy - speak to Fr Robert or call the parish office!
Your life CAN make a difference – Discover how with CCO!
The CCO Mission Team is arriving in the English Roman Catholic Parishes of Verdun this week and staying in both Rectories for most of June!
While they're here, you are invited to share your experiences of life and faith with the next generation of Verdun Catholics through Discovery - three weeks of small group discussions run by student leaders from across the country. They’re excited to meet you and these conversations will bring you even closer to Jesus and help you bring others to him!

Update on Masking
As the province is no longer requiring masking indoors, it now becomes a personal choice to mask indoors. We encourage all of you to continue acting with charity and compassion in order to protect our vulnerable parishioners, as you have done so far during the pandemic.
Individuals experiencing symptoms are strongly called upon to isolate themselves, to take a rapid test, and follow the instructions that apply in such cases.
Yours in Christ,
Father Robert Assaly+
