Christmas Tree of Hope – More tags added!!! Congratulations to CWL and Parish – Remember to have unwrapped gifts under the tree by Friday, December 9.

The Catholic Women’s League is inviting you to help make a child’s Christmas merrier. The Catholic Women’s League is also providing assistance for the women at the Ellen Osler Home. If you wish to help a child pick a colorful angel from the tree, purchase the gift suitable to the child’s age and gender. Example: B-1 Boy age 1; G-5 Girl age 5 Ellen Osler Home has requested a donation of $25.00 towards a Christmas Gift for each woman. Please place your donation in the envelope provided and leave in the weekend collection basket or take to the Parish Office. Please return your unwrapped child’s gift with the Angel Tag taped to the top of the package. Place it under the Christmas tree by December 9th. Both the children’s and women’s programs are sponsored by the Salvation Army. May the Christmas Angels bless you for your kind generosity.

 

 

Pastoral Letter from the Eparchs of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Canada

First parish of the diocese, Hamilton 1827

 

St. Augustine Church, built 1864
Our  parish of St Augustine’s is the Mother Parish of the Diocese of Hamilton. In 1827, Fr. James Campion built a small wooden chapel in Dundas, marking the beginning of  St. Augustine’s Parish. The first baptism recorded in our register is August 06, 1827, and since then a vibrant community of faith has called St. Augustine’s  home to this very day.

Pastor’s Reflections

Keep awake!

Mass Readings for the 1st Sunday in Advent:Isaiah 2.1-5 Psalm 122.1-9 Romans 13.11-14 Matthew 24.37-44 “Staying awake” and being “awake” is a recurring theme in the gospels.

To whom we pledge ourselves

Mass readings for the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe:2 Samuel 5.1-3 Ps. 122.1-5 Colossians 1.12-20 Luke 23.35-43 Every year at this celebration that marks the end of the Church Year we confess Christ as our king. In looking at my past homilies, the question I always return to is, “what […]

Answering the enemy

I mean that in the sense that he has […]
