In Time for Christmas
Restoring the Light in our Sanctuary

 
Recently a group of Parish volunteer Knights, (Deacon Derek West, Mike and Brennan Posmituk, Juliano Brusadin and George Romick) replaced the ballast in our high ceiling light fixture to re-light our Sanctuary for Christmas.   A huge thanks to all who assisted.

A LABOUR OF LOVE BY OUR SIR KNIGHTS AND LADIES

        

At St. Patrick’s Cemetery a large imposing stone Cross with the inscription: “You are a Priest Forever”, marks the site of the sacred grounds where the graves of two of our former Bishops and many of our Priests who served in our City Parishes and elsewhere are located.
Recently, a group of our parishioners volunteered many hours of their time to pay tribute to our clergy by completely re-fashioning and beautifying with a new large flower bed, this area of remembrance.

On behalf of our priests and our parishioners, I wish to thank the following members and couples of the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, for their much appreciated initiative and their labour of love: Joe Salini, Wayne and Janet Murphy, Mike and Lisa Posmituk and George and Brenda Romick.

 

THANK-YOU TO KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS COUNCIL 1447!


This past week, Wayne Murphy called together a selected group of parishioner Knights from Fort William Council 1447 to begin a thorough cleaning of our Cathedral in preparation for its reopening for Mass in July. In only one day of dedicated hard work by the seven volunteers, all our pews and kneelers were restored to their original beauty. In the following weeks, the group is planning to refurbish our altars and Stations of the Cross and to scrub and polish our Church floors.  We thank Wayne, Bill Vass, Deacon Derek West, Dave Bragnalo, Larry Pankuch, Joe Salini and George Romick for their commitment to clean and beautify our Cathedral!
