It All Began with a Question...

It all began with a question: Fr. David asked,“What’s your favourite Christmas Carol?” and from there, it grew into a Top 5 list for both favourite Christmas carols and favourite Christmas TV shows and movies. Interesting enough, not everything listed below is Christmassy (I’m not even sure that’s a word…), some appear to be shows our staff members will get to binge-watch while on Christmas break (Thank you, Lord for Netflix. Amen). Please enjoy our Top 5 lists…

In his homily at the Chrism Mass in Rome this past spring, Pope Francis spoke of the anointing of Aaron as being an anointing that must go to "the edges" and "the fringes." He lovingly referred to the mission of the Church as reaching out to the "existential outskirts." Such wonderful language has encouraged all of the faithful to reach out to the fringes in our own societies and parish communities.

One Up on St. Nicholas

I do believe that every person has some inner desire to always be ahead of the game. For most of us, "flying by the seat of our pants" has become a most common and accepted practice.
