Greetings Brother Knights and fellow Parishioners of St Theresa Church.

The unfortunate news is….if you have not been contacted by myself, sadly, your ticket was not drawn as a winner in the Spirit of Pasta Knight Raffle. Thank you all, for with your generous support, the Knights were able to raise $2,000.00 for the needs of the Church.

On that very positive note I will remind all that our Spiritually Adopted Baby is due at the end of this month of May. This will most likely be the second year we are unable to physically hold our baby shower after Mass.

The Knights will be selling 50/50 tickets this month in support of Villa Rosa, whom we sponsor with the Baby Shower. Villa Rosa supplies all facets of support for single expecting mothers who have chosen to keep their baby and may need a bit of help. The Knights also encourage private donations and I suggest that you send a memo or note with your donation to Villa Rosa on behalf of the St Theresa Spiritually Adopted Baby Shower.

50/50 tickets are being sold for $5.00 each or 3 for $10.00. The socially distanced draw will take place outside St Theresa Church at 12:30 p.m. on May 30th 2021. Lottery License #2021-03.

Contact Dennis Weselowski at drweselowski@shaw.ca or call 204-339-1866 to make arrangements for contactless purchase and receipt of your ticket.

Vivat Jesus,

Dennis Weselowski

Pastor’s Easter Message

“Lord, you have renewed the face of the earth. Your Church throughout the world sings you a new song, announcing your wonders to all. Through a virgin, you have brought forth a new birth in our world; through your miracles, a new power; through your suffering, a new patience; in your resurrection, a new hope, and in your ascension, new majesty”. These words from the Office of the Breviary (the prayer of the Church) proclaims the life of Christ: His birth, life, suffering, death, resurrection and ascension.

It is with great joy in my heart I announce to you: “Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!” This ancient greeting sums up what we celebrate this Easter Sunday, the joy of Christ risen and alive in our midst.

As we all know, this past year has been difficult to bear, in many respects. Aspects of Church life, and life in general, have been put on hold, or at least radically changed, in so many ways. There is a new “normal” that still doesn’t feel normal at all. We have all been affected in one way or another: economically, emotionally and spiritually. Some are grieving the loss of loved ones who died over this past year, some due to complications of the virus. My heartfelt sympathy to those who are suffering because of a loss of someone dear.

FAITH strengthens us, HOPE encourages us to persevere and LOVE embraces us and sustains us through bad times like these. It is a great grace to be able to gather as the People of God and celebrate this Triduum and Easter Sunday together as a parish family. It is so wonderful to welcome more and more of you back to Mass.

May God Bless you and all those you love! Stay well, and stay safe! Happy Easter!

In Christ, Fr. David

FROM THE WOMB OF MARY,

TO THE CRADLE IN BETHLEHEM,

TO THE CROSS ON CALVARY,

TO THE EMPTY TOMB,

OUR GOD REVEALS HIS LOVE FOR US!


As we continue to find ways to support each other, let us remember that the church also needs support. For those families who are able, you can mail in your collection envelopes (3597 Main Street, West St Paul, MB R4A 5A2). Post-dated cheques would be acceptable. Please see link for the Pre-Authorized Debit form. Or you may make your donations through the Archdiocese of Winnipeg APP.

Most importantly, less us continue to pray for one another and for an end to this pandemic.

PARISH PROTOCOLS AMID COVID-19
