· NOVENA for Catholic Education
This Thursday, October 25 to Saturday, November 2, we are encouraged to pray the novena for our Catholic schools in Alberta. We are grateful for our Catholic schools and pray that the Holy Spirit intercedes for them.
Novena for Catholic Education Sunday
The Novena for Catholic Education Sunday is a traditional prayer to the Holy Spirit. To make it more dynamic in the community of the classroom, the Novena employs a liturgical dialogue and the Glory be. The introduction is inspired by this year’s theme for Catholic Education Sunday.
We are grateful for our Catholic Schools. Let us unite in prayer that the Holy Spirit may intercede for Catholic Education throughout Alberta by praying this traditional prayer daily from October 25 until November 2, 2019.
Leader: Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
All: And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Leader: Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created,
All: And you will renew the face of the earth.
Leader: Let us pray:
All: Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit
help us to attain our happiness in what is right
and to always rejoice in your peace and consolation.
May you inspire Catholic Education with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit that it may remain
faithful to your teachings and committed to living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Leader: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit:
All: as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

OLS is collecting non perishable food items on the weekends of Oct 20 and 27 to donate to the food bank in Canmore. Parishioners who wish to participate are encouraged to bring their items to masses on these weekends.
· Planned Gifts: These are donations which you prepare now, but go to the charity later. These most often are gifts in your Will, but can be a gift of securities or life insurance. You can make such a gift to your parish or a diocesan program of your choice. Planting a Future - Planned giving in the Diocese of Calgary.
