Stewardship Prayer

Loving God, I come to you in thanksgiving,
knowing that all I am and all that I have is a gift from you.
In faith and love, help me to do your will.
I am listening, Lord God.
Speak your words into the depth of my soul,
that I may hear you clearly.
I offer to you this day all the facets of my life,
Whether it be at home, at work, or at school—
to be patient, to be merciful, to be generous, to be holy.
Give me the wisdom and insight
to understand your will for me
and the fervour to fulfill my good intentions.
I offer my gifts of time, talent and possessions to you
as a true act of faith,
to reflect my love for you and my neighbour.
Help me to reach out to others as you, my God,
have reached out to me.
Amen.

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION FOR FIRST COMMUNION, FIRST RECONCILIATION AND CONFIRMATION:

Within the Archdiocese of Toronto, Grade 2 and Grade 7 are generally considered to be the time when students prepare to receive their sacraments. In Grade 2, the children may prepare for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion and in Grade 7, students may prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Parents, if you wish to have your child(ren) receive their First Holy Communion or Confirmation in 2021 and participate in these sacramental preparation programs, you must contact the parish where you usually worship and attend Mass.

 

Visit your parish website to find out more information about sacramental preparation programs and how you can register for them. Please note: most parishes close registration for these sacramental preparation programs in the early Fall.

 

If your child is entering Gr. 2 or Gr.7 in Fall 2020, and Our Lady Queen of the World Parish is where you worship and attend regularly, please contact Dorothy Whelan for instructions on how to register online for the parish preparation program for First Communion and Confirmation. dwhelan@archtoronto.org

“In ShareLife we find the presence of Christ in the midst of those who suffer. We are there with them because He is with us, sending us out to be with those who are in need. That’s the purpose of ShareLife. Especially in this time of such great need in the midst of this pandemic, I ask you to, in a very particular way, be generous in supporting those in need during the ShareLife Sunday collection.”

Pope Francis’ Prayer to Mary during the coronavirus pandemic
O Mary,
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick,
who at the cross took part in Jesus’ pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
O Christ Jesus
When all is darkness
And we feel our weakness and helplessness,
Give us the sense of Your Presence,
Your Love and Your Strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
In Your protecting love
And strengthening power,
So that nothing may frighten or worry us,
For, living close to You,
We shall see You in all that is Life-Giving
Around us.

PASTORAL CARE & COUNSELLING is available to parishioners at lcanlas@archtoronto.org. Lori’s secure online consultation can support you with personal, emotional or relationship struggles. Telephone consultations are also available.

You may pray this Act of Spiritual Communion when you are not able to be physically present at Mass. “My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. ” Amen.
