Over the next few months, members of Parliament will discuss Bill C-384.

It bestows thefollowing graces: “the uniting of the sick person to the passion of Christ, for his/her own good and forthat of the whole Church; the strengthening, peace and courage to endure in a Christian manner thesuffering of illness or old age; the forgiveness of sins, if the sick person was not able to obtain it throughthe sacrament of Penance; the restoration of health, if it is conducive to the salvation of his soul; andthe preparation for passing over to eternal life: (Cathechism of the Catholic Church, 1511, 1532.)
PLEASE NOTE: that the priests of the Diocese will be on retreat from Sunday, October 25

HINI – DIRECTIVE FROM THE DIOCESE OF PEMBROKE
:
As the flu season approaches,health officials encourage us to remain diligent with certain measures to stem the spread of the H1N1 virus. Thefollowing points are guidelines for liturgical celebrations during flu season.a) Priests, deacons and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion should be reminded of the needto practice good hygiene by washing their hands before Mass begins. The use of alcohol-basedhand sanitizers is strongly recommended.b) The distribution of the Precious Blood from the chalice should be limited to the presider and concelebrants.c) Use prudent judgement with the custom of exchanging the sign of peace. In some parishes, neighbours turn toeach other, give a slight bow and verbally greet each other with the “Peace of Christ”.d) Parishioners should be reminded that if they are feeling ill, they should not attend Sunday Mass. Because theyare not feeling well, their Sunday obligation is commuted.
We will suspend distribution of the Blood of Christ, beginning next weekend and until the endof flu season. Communion ministers will all assist with the Body of Christ.
