During the month of October, our various parish ministries will be leading us in praying the Rosary. All are welcome!
A full schedule for October can be downloaded here: http://goo.gl/5XpF39
“The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description.”- Archbishop Fulton Sheen
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
We have talked about building a church for many years in our parish communities. Well, there can no longer be any question about the physical reality of Corpus Christi. I encourage you and your family to drive by 28A Avenue and 34 St. It is very evident that our Church is under construction. Did you know that we have mounted a camera that takes pictures of the construction progress every twenty minutes during daylight hours. Over a thousand pictures have already been taken. When all is said and done and we are celebrating Mass within Corpus Christi, we will be able to watch a time lapse movie of the eighteen months of construction of Corpus Christi. Fall 2015 completion date. Cool heh?
My friends, if you are not yet involved in helping to build the Church of Corpus Christi, there is no better time than now. We need you.
Fr. Jim Corrigan
We are currently looking for both dedicated Catholic adults and high school teens who want to minister to youth while having a blast! Service hours / reference letters provided! Volunteer application form linked below!
Some Benefits of being a Youth Ministry Volunteer include:
- Growing in one’s own faith and being inspired by the faith of others
- Exercising one’s gifts & talents for the sake of the Gospel mission
- Developing friendships with other adults and being a mentor to youth
- Core members & Support Leaders can request a reference letter
- Experience highly regarded by Edmonton Catholic School district & helpful for gaining youth-oriented jobs
We ask you to prayerfully discern whether you are able to commit to volunteering with our St. Theresa’s youth ministry as a Core Team Member (time commitment of 12 or 18 hours/month) or Support Leader (approx. 5 hours/month) for a one year term.
Not sure if you’re called to Core? Join our One Month Challenge! This option is for adults 18 years and up who are brand new to youth ministry and want to discern whether they are called to Core before committing to a full year of service. Time commitment is approx. 18 hours for just 1 month!
Wanna know more?
