Camp St. Louis has an announcement!

“Well the snow has finally left, and you can finally get to your storage shed. You start to have an itch to use that new chainsaw you bought last year. Or the new tools you have never been able to put to use because you only have three trees in the yard. Or that trailer you bought off of Kijiji because it was a good deal!.. but you were only able to use it once. The itch to get out into the wild and do some work comes upon you as the days get hotter and hotter. Well, Camp St. Louis has some news for you. We will be having our Annual Camp Cleanup on May 28th 2022, starting at 10am till 4pm.  If you have a chainsaw please know you are more than welcome to bring it. We will attempt to chop up as many dead trees as possible. If you have an Axe bring it as well! As we will use the logs for firewood for our campers this summer! What would also be helpful is to have a couple trailers to take branches to the dump. If you can bring one please let Sam know. We will also be clearing gravel from the grass in many areas. Feel free to bring any other tools you may deem handy. We will finish off the afternoon with a FREE Barbeque lunch. Most of the buildings are in need of some deep cleaning as well, as many of them haven’t been used in awhile so anyone is welcome to come out to help! Snacks and refreshments will also be provided throughout the day. Come out for some good hard work and fellowship! If you are planning on coming please contact:

Life Wood Buffalo 2022 Bottle Drive

In efforts to bring the Truth about the Gift of Life to our community we need your support. We have started a monthly bottle drive with help from  Parishes in the Wood Buffalo Region. Lord willing, we will keep doing this Bottle Drive the first Saturday Mass of every month at the same time and locations, before the Saturday evening masses. Please bring your refundable beverage containers for donation. 

St John’s, 5PM   &   St Paul’s, 7PM

(FIRST SATURDAYS OF EVERY MONTH)

Life Wood Buffalo will be set up with trucks and our banner in front of the garage doors at the Office to receive your bottles prior to mass.  

PLEASE BRING YOUR REFUNDABLE BEVERAGE BOTTLES AND CANS IN A BAG

If you typically do not attend mass at these times or for whatever reason can not drop off your bottles but would still like to help us with a donation or arrange an alternate bottle drop-off, please email: lifewoodbuffalo@outlook.com.

Prayer against Coronavirus 

Almighty and merciful Father, 

We thank you for the life that is your gift, 

For the providence, that sustains us, 

And for your wisdom that directs the course of our days. 

Forgive our sins against your love, 

Against each other and against your creation. 

The threat of an infection of coronavirus is upon us today. 

This disease causes fear among us and has claimed some lives. 

We humbly beg you, loving Father 

To deliver us from this and other diseases. 

Heal those who are afflicted and stop the spread of the virus. 

Strengthen us in charity to care for each other. 

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, 

Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit 

One God for ever and ever. Amen 

Deacon Raymond Chan’s Sunday Homily
