New Translation Tuesday from Ontario

"New Translation Tuesday" greetings from Ontario. The parish mission at Holy Family Parish continued last night, with a focus on the Eucharist.

I was thrilled to be invited to the parish High School's championship hockey game yesterday. Many of you who follow this blog know what an avid hockey fan I am. I had never been to a high school game and was very impressed with the skating abilities of these young men.

Unfortunately, "we" were defeated by Our Lady of Mount Carmel High School.

Here's a short video I took of the action.

Last night, I asked the folks at the mission if they wouldn't mind appearing on my blog and they agreed to my request. Here are some of the folks attending the mission.

I have so enjoyed spending time with this community of faith. This morning I spoke to two groups of juniors and seniors at the high school, focusing on baptism and confirmation. I don't usually speak to teenagers, but I hope it was beneficial for them.

The mission concludes tonight, then I fly to Chicago (hopefully) in the morning. Our offices back home closed at noon today because of the snowstorm; very unusual for our company. Then tomorrow night I fly (hopefully) to Baltimore for the Mid-Atlantic Congress.

Please pray for the safety of all travelers.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

That is awesome! My 9yo son plays hockey. It's always exciting when the team is invited to stay for the college game.
