Bishop Harris has written a letter to all members of the Diocese of Saint John encouraging those already participating in ministries to consider enrolling in the upcoming Lay Pastoral Ministry Formation Program. You can find the letter here.
The Diocese of Saint John is happy to announce that another Lay Pastoral Ministry Formation Program will begin November 2013. This is a two-year program that takes place over ten monthly weekends each year. It is a great opportunity for those involved in ministry (within and outside the walls of the church), desiring to learn more about their faith and to grow spiritually, and to develop pastoral skills. It is also a helpful program for those discerning God’s call for ministry. Further information can be found on posters and brochures in the foyer of the church. If you need further information, you may leave a message for Claudette Derdaele, Coordinator of the program, by contacting the Diocese (653-6800). Please note that Diocesan policy requires all applicants to be approved by their parish priest. Registration deadline is September 30th.
For anyone who is interested in receiving the special graces promised by our Lord on Divine Mercy Sunday (the Sunday after Easter – April 7th) it is necessary for them to begin their personal preparations beginning this coming Friday which is Good Friday, March 29th. For more information look for the Divine Mercy Poster at the church entrance as well as the information sheet in last Sunday’s bulletin. To assist all those who would like to receive the special graces promised by Jesus, the final requirement of ceremoniously exposing and blessing the image of Divine Mercy for everyone to venerate will take place during a special Holy Hour of Adoration at Holy Trinity Church on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7th beginning at 3pm which is the hour of our Lord’s mercy. For any questions, do not hesitate to ask Father Peter.
