On World Mission Sunday, we remember our baptismal call to share the Gospel so that others may come to know Jesus. This year, Pope Francis focuses on the theme “Hearts on fire, feet on the move” (cf. Lk 24:13-35), inspired by the disciples who encountered Jesus on their way to Emmaus.
The second collection this weekend will provide essential support to churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is new, young or poor. Your gift and prayers will make a difference to world missionaries as they continue the work of evangelization in the most vulnerable of communities. Tax-deductible donations can be made in person at the parish or online at stpatricksmapleridge.ca/donations/second-collections/.
Project Advance 2023:
Empowering Our Parish Vision
Your support of Project Advance will help grow your parish and expand the reach of Christ’s love to those who need it most. It will fund initiatives such as pastoral formation, youth and young adult ministries, outreach programs for the vulnerable and in need, and the construction of new Catholic schools. Tax-deductible donations can be made in person at your parish or online. Legacy gifts are also appreciated. Learn more and donate at https://support.rcav.org/project-advance-2023/.

Upcoming public lecture at Catholic Pacific College! Wednesday, October 25, 7pm at the CPC building. Prof. Allen Haaheim will bring together aspects of the thought of Victorian poet Gerard Manley Hopkins to explore “inscape,” a word he coined that, in his own words, means “design, pattern” and constitutes “the very soul of art.” Inscape also gets to the very being of things—including ours—and comes from Christ and His presence. The title of the talk is: “Of Kingfishers and Other Fires.” Bring a friend! Free Registration: catholicpacific.ca/cpc3
