Sunday Greetings from Ontario

Sunday greetings from Ontario. I am here in Canada leading a parish mission at Holy Family Parish in Bolton, a suburb of Toronto. I went to all four weekend Masses and the parish has a wonderful sense of hospitality and it is obvious that much care goes into preparing the liturgy and liturgical music. And the singing is just splendid.

Here is shot of the interior of the church:

To the right is the parish's Book of the Elect. There are five members of the Elect this Lent for the parish; all children of catechetical age.

And here is a photo during the celebration of the First Scrutiny. That's the pastor, my friend Fr. Larry Leger, kneeling in front of the young member of the elect during the laying on of hands during the scrutiny.

The mission gets into full gear tonight, with a focus on the power and potential of the sacrament of baptsim. I am looking forward to these prayerful days with this parish.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
