Thursday, January 11th



We all have suffering; and when we suffer we may pull away from God and others. We may lose hope, yet, as Catholics, we are unified in our belief that God is always with us – even during our suffering when it feels as though we are completely alone. Hope is the tie that binds us together as Christians. Hope in God lifts up the lowly and there is hope in knowing that He is always with us.  

God of Hope,

Help us to remember that you are with us in our suffering.

Help us to embody hope for one another,

 when hopelessness is a frequent unwelcomed guest in our hearts.

Grant us the gift of being grounded in your loving Spirit,

as we work together against all forms of oppression and injustice.

Give us the courage to love how You love,

and to express this love in our actions.

Through Christ, Our Lord.

École St Mary High School would like to invite the community to Upstage Productions' drama, Puffs or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic. In this hilarious parody of a familiar story, three potential heroes are just trying to make it through a magic school that proves to be very dangerous for children. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal outsiders with a thing for badgers. Their epic quest takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be. Showtimes at the E.A. Rawlinson Centre are at 7:30 p.m. fromThursday, January 11th to Saturday, January 13th.  Tickets cost $22.00 for adults (ages 19 and over) and $18.00 for students (ages 18 years and under) and are available at the E.A.
