A word from Father Reegan, on the occasion of Easter and the Paschal Mystery
The suffering, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus is called the Paschal Mystery. Paschal means passage from death to new life; slavery to liberation; sin to grace; darkness to light; brokenness to wholeness; violence to peace; disunity to unity; hatred to love; enmity to friendship; despair to hope; doubt to faith; sickness to health; disharmony to harmony and balance.
All these passages are done with God the Father, through Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit. Jesus went through all these experiences during his 33 years of life on this Earth and he came to be Christ-Self through the graces of God the Father and the guidance of the Holy Spirit by giving us life for us on the cross freely and generously. He learned to make sense of his experiences for the glory of God and for the salvation of whole humanity-creation. So, we are invited to live these days with faith, hope and community prayers.
Let us not forget that we are in it together as spiritual and human community. This belief in the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ is the very central element of our Christian Faith and Spirituality. God restored everything in His Son Jesus Christ for the Life and well being of the whole creation including humanity.
We encourage you to participate in all these activities in order to receive God’s graces abundantly. Please do come with your kids, youth, elders, family members and relatives. We believe and live and move in a God of compassion, generosity and good will. Come, together, let us adore him who created us in his own image and likeness. Christ is Risen, Alleluia!
HAPPY EASTER & NEW LIFE IN CHRIST!!!
Your brother in Christ,
Fr. Reegan Soosai, CMF

"That We May Walk Together"
On 8 February 2023, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops issued the following pastoral letter on reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Intended as a framework for local engagement with Indigenous Peoples, the letter addressed to First Nations is the fruit of many months of listening, encounter, and dialogue with them, including through Listening Circles, the Indigenous Delegation to the Vatican in April 2022, and Pope Francis’ Apostolic Voyage to Canada in July of the same year.
