4 YOUTH: Today is the Feast of Pentecost, which marks the end of the Easter season. On Pentecost, the Holy Spirt descended upon the Apostles and gave them the courage and the abilites needed to preach the Gospel of Jesus and to baptize those who believed. On that first Pentecost Sunday, “about three thousand were added” (Acts 2:41). These people went on to share their new faith in Christ with others. That is why this Feast is often referred to as the birthday of the Catholic Church. On Pentecost Sunday, when the Holy Spirt, which is helped them to fulfill their mission to preach the Gospel to all nations.

CARD GAME: Sunday 7:15 pm


NOT A DOVE, NOT A FLAME, BUT A PERSON!: If you were asked to draw a picture of God the Son , you might sketch a young man with long hair and a beard. If you were asked to draw a picture of God the Father, you might fashion an image of an older man with white hair. How would you draw a picture of the Holy Spirt? Most artists have been content with using images from the Bible– a dove or a flame. Is this adequate? Jesus’ description of the Holy Spirt is that of a person. “ I will ask the Father and he will send you another advocate. When he comes... he will guide you to all truth.” (Jn 15:16; 16:13) The best image of the Holy Spirt might be that of the Russian Icon by Andrei Rublev, a 15th century artist. He portrays three visitors to Abraham mentioned in Genesis 18. They are identical in appearance, though their clothing differs. The point is that God the Holy Spirt is a loving, caring, and beautiful person. The Holy Spirit should be treated in the same way as God the Father and God the Son.


AS A BODY IS ONE: The central point in Paul’s teaching is the notion that all of Jesus’ followers are united. This is more than a symbolic unity–that we are together in a common faith. Paul believes that there is a real physical and mental link between us. He uses the human body as an illustration of this basic thought. Your body is a combination of many individual components: hands, feet, eyes, bones, etc. Today, we might compare it with a computer that has a monitor, keyboard, central processor, modem–all linked together by wires ( or even wireless). Each part is harmonized by our brain, or more specifically, by our soul. When the soul leaves the body, the individual parts no longer act in harmony. The Holy Spirt is the connecting link in our faith-body. He (or She) harmonizes our individual gifts for the benefit of the whole community.


MARRIAGE REQUESTS FROM THOSE  WHO LIVE AWAY: You must approach your Pastor or Director of Parish Life:

1) Take the pre marriage seminar being offered.

2) Ask him or her to have your pre-nuptial investigation forms completed

3)Have NIHIL OBSTAT and/or TESTIMONAL LETTER completed. You must obtain your certificate of Baptism and Confirmation. All such information is to be forwarded to our Chancery Office at 469 Curling Street, Corner Brook, NL. A2H 3K8. Give this immediate priority. Show this notice with your Pastor.
