Parish Photo Directory

This weekend's parish photo directory project will continue as planned.  Because the basement is currently occupied by our flood relief centre, pictures will be taken upstairs in the sacristy.

Catholicism Project

This evening's viewing of the next episode in the "Catholicism Project" series will be postponed due to flood damage and flood relief efforts.  Please keep an eye on the parish bulletin for details regarding our next gathering.

Celebrating the Month of Mary... Living Rosary Sunday

This Sunday, May 27, at 2 p.m. our parish will be hosting a "Living Rosary" prayer service.

In spiritual communion with the Blessed Virgin Mary who gathered with the disciples in the Cenacle to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit, we too pray in expectant faith.

All are welcome to join us as we pray for the special intentions of an increase of priestly vocations in our diocese and for the gift of spiritual renewal.  A time for fellowship and refreshments in the church hall will follow the service.

"Come, Holy Spirit!  Fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love!"

Catholic Women's League Diocesan Convention

The last weekend in April saw members of the Catholic Women's League from across the diocese converge on Fort Frances for their annual convention.  Designed to be a time of renewal, prayer, planning and networking, the convention was also an opportunity for many to renew old friendships and make new ones. Our parish was well represented, with over a dozen members of our parish council in attendance (plus our spiritual advisor!)  Thanks to the delegate who submitted the photos!

Divine Mercy Celebration 2012

As part of the worldwide observance of the Feast of Divine Mercy, Catholics from many parishes gathered at Our Lady Queen of Poland Church for a special diocesan celebration on Sunday, April 15.  The afternoon service included testimonials, praying of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, opportunities for individual confession and veneration of the relic of St. Faustina.  Following the service, the pastor and parishioners of Our Lady Queen of Poland hosted a time of fellowship in the church hall.  Below are a couple photos from the service:
