To Be Faithful Servants Walking God's Talk
This Weeks Readings: Exodus 20.1-17; Psalm 19; 1 Corinthians 1.18, 22-25; John 2.13-25.
In the wilderness of unfocused wandering, we complain of our thirst and our needs. The Lord refreshes us in ways we do not always comprehend. God’s hope is poured into our hearts in our search for life-giving water. The foreign, unworthy woman at the well comes to realize that there is a water that only the Lord can bequeath—a spring of water that gushes up to eternal life.
Next Week's Readings: 2 Chronicles 36.14-17a, 19-23; Psalm 137; Ephesians 2.4-10; John 3.14-21.

Family of Faith is an unprecedented effort that will strengthen, inspire and transform the Archdiocese of Toronto and its 225 parishes. Up until we reach our goal, twenty-five cents of all realized pledges will go towards our parish needs. When we exceed our parish goal, seventy-five cents of every additional pledged dollar will come right back to our parish. St. Patrick’s is excited to use these funds for relocating the rectory to a residence within walking distance of the church and reconfiguring our current rectory and office space in order to expand our meeting space.
In a few short months, St. Patrick’s has raised over $1,236,920 from just 128 parish families. Each and every household is invited to contribute to the success of this initiative in a way appropriate to them. It will take many hands and many households to make these dreams a reality for the future. Our parish goal is achievable with your support!
