New Faithful Friar: Father Michael Isabelle
My Brother Knights
The season of Lent is upon us once again. During this time we are to consider those ways in which we are true Ambassadors
for Christ (Ash Wednesday, 2'nd reading) and, also, ways in which we can be improved Ambassadors for Christ.
In the Gospel of the healing of the Leper, (Mark 1, and Matt. 18), Jesus touches the outcast, he, thus becomes an outcast
himself. In doing so, He fulfils the words of the prophet Isaiah "He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases". In
doing so, Jesus joins himself to us in the most meaningful way, - by lifting up our sins unto himself and, thus, lifting away
In doing so, Jesus offers to us true healing, not just of the symptoms of evil, but of its root causes. We are cleansed as
was the leper. This special grace is offered to us during Lent.
On our part, we must accept his healing love, and, then, pass it on to others by a healing love for them. The outcasts came
to Jesus in his time. They still do today.
God bless you and your families during this time of God's special grace.

The Discipline of Lent
Dear Sir Knight's it seems this year that we have had quite a gap between Christmas and the start of Lent but here we go.
Our church has set many obligations for us regarding Lent and one of them is Fasting.
Fasting on Ash Wednesday and all the Friday's during this penitential season has been encouraged by our Catholic Church.
It is true that there are benefits of fasting through out Lent. With a greater increase in prayer one finds that many of the
attachments that a person has in this world suddenly become almost meaningless or much less important than was once thought.
Fasting has also been good for cleansing the body of any germs or parasites that may be residing in our bodies.
One actually experiences the fact that a simpler less complicated lifestyle is more meaningful than filling our lives with
OK. "Back to assembly business" I would like our members and executive to find ways to increase our membership to meet the
target of 5 members which is actually below what our quota is supposed to be.
We need to also go through our records and send Form 4's to any clergy which can be contacted to make sure they are transferred
to our Assembly as I feel this is as good as signing up new candidates.
Please keep the month of JUNE open my brother Sir Knights as we have some very special colour outings coming up then.
We will be celebrating a Ceremony for the 150lh.Anniversary Hamilton Dioceses
A mass In June could see a colour outing of at least FIVE Assemblies which are within the Diocese of Hamilton
The other event is Sir Knight Gerry Guinto's. Ordination as a Permanent Deacon atmy parish, Our Lady of the Assumption.
We will be available for Colour at his first mass.
As I mentioned earlier Lent is a time for intense prayer and we should all pray for our
Assembly that it continues to grow with new members and great participation from as many as possible at our Colour Outings.
May Christ be your strength and support this "Lenten Season".
May it truly be a time of renewal for all of you remembering how our Lord Jesus suffered for our sins on the bloody, cross.
