POPE FRANCIS IN CANADA; Walking Together:
Pope Francis will make a pastoral visit to Canada from July 24 to 29, 2022. The Pope’s visit will provide an opportunity for him, once again, to listen and dialogue with Indigenous Peoples, to express his heartfelt closeness and to address the impact of residential schools throughout Canada. The papal visit will also provide an opportunity for the shepherd of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics to connect with the Catholic community in Canada. Pope Francis will adopt three communities as a base for his Canadian visit: Edmonton, Quebec City, and Iqaluit. The locations will limit travel for the 85 year-old Holy Father while still allowing an opportunity for both intimate and public encounters, drawing on participation from all regions of the country. Specific programming and events will be confirmed approximately six weeks prior to the Holy Father’s arrival. Visit www.papalvisit.ca for more information and to stay updated on the latest developments. Please continue to pray for the health of Pope Francis and for all those engaged in the ongoing journey of healing, hope and reconciliation.
CONGRATULATIONS FR. KESSETE: Congratulations to Fr. Kessete Hammad who has been appointed Pastor of St. Ann Parish in Niagara Falls effective August 3, 2022.
WORLD COMMUNICATION DAY (May 29): Today Catholics are invited to reflect upon the media of social communication (films, radio, television, newspapers) and how these influence our lives. The media can promote values that lead to a more fully human society. The Church’s ministry is twofold. The media can be used to help promote the Gospel. At the same time, as receivers of the materials presented by the media, the faithful have a duty to support and promote worthwhile presentation on media and reject those which promote values contrary to spiritual growth.

The Prayer of the Synod
Adsumus Sancte Spiritus
We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name. With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts; Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it. We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder. Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions. Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right. All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever. Amen.
As believers in God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and believers in the Salvation revealed by Jesus Christ, the very existence of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church is to be a living witness of God’s promises to human beings.
