Quoi de neuf à ÉPK?

Week of Dec.17 to 21, 2018

Third Sunday and Week of Advent

Today we light the third candle on our Advent wreath. The theme this week is joy. We are getting closer to celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior and the great joy he brings to our lives.

God of joy, as we get closer to the celebration of the birth of your Son, we remain filled with joy. We know that it is difficult to always be optimistic and cheerful. However, we know that you wish us to be a joy-filled people. Help us to focus on our blessings, to be appreciative of the many people who support us , and to be ever mindful of your constant presence. As we approach the celebration of Jesus' birth, may the peace and the joy of the season fill our hearts. Amen.

Christmas Wishes

Dear Lord,

Today I pray for our school community. May everyone feel our Lord's Love, Joy, Hope and Peace during this Christmas Holiday and rejoice at the birth of his Son Jesus.

I pray that all of you enjoy a wonderful Christmas with all your loved ones and that healing comes to all those of you who need it. I thank all of you for welcoming me in this beautiful community and for helping make our school a God kissed place.

May the Lord bless you all!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

Mme Lafrance

A Message From Your Parish

Dear OLPH Families,

Has it been hard to get the kids out of bed on Sunday morning? Do you like to spend Sunday evenings together as a family and get ready for the upcoming week? Then OLPH Parish has the perfect Mass time for you. Please join us at our new 12:30pm Mass each Sunday.

Also, as you consider which Christmas Eve Mass you would like to attend, please remember that our 6:30pm Mass downstairs is a Christ-Centered-Youth-Focused Mass. Father Jim will be presiding at this Mass and the homily will be youth friendly. We encourage all families with children to join us for this Mass.

God bless,

OLPH Parish Team
