Volunteers needed: Are you looking for a meaningful opportunity to serve others in this wonderful community? Our Lady of the Rockies Catholic Church is one of 10 groups, 6 of which are local churches that volunteer at the Food & Friends Community Dinners that are held every Monday evening at St. Michael’s Church. These dinners started in February 2013 & serve approximately 200 meals each Monday. To date a remarkable 27,000 meals have been served! The purpose of these free meals, open to all, is best described by the word COMMUNITY. People come to share food & friendship.
We are short volunteers from our Parish to fulfill our mandate. We are scheduled approximately every 6 weeks from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. This is not onerous. Can you help? We need both men and women. Please contact Lorraine at 403 609-3757 or email at LLE1953@gmail.com
MONTH OF OUR LADY OF SORROWS The Church dedicates the month of September to Our Lady of Sorrows. This devotion recalls the Blessed Virgin Mary’s spiritual martyrdom in virtue of her perfect union with the Passion of Christ. This was her role in salvation history, and what merited her place as the spiritual Mother of all Christians. This is symbolized by a single sword, or seven swords, piercing Mary's suffering heart, as foretold in Simeon's prophecy. Traditionally the Church meditates on the "Seven Sorrows" of our Blessed Mother: the prophecy of Simeon; the Holy Family's flight into Egypt; the loss of the Child Jesus for three days; the meeting of Mary and Jesus as he carried his cross; Jesus' crucifixion and death; Jesus' sacred body taken down from the cross; and Jesus' burial. The feast of Our Lady of Sorrows is September 15th.
