 Email Scam

An email scam has surfaced again in the Archdiocese. The scam email

purports to be from your parish priest, who is asking for money or gift cards because of some urgent need; for example, to help someone in hospital.

Please be assured that no priest of the Archdiocese would ever legitimately ask for money in this way.

We encourage you to report such incidents to the

Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and delete the email message.

Ash Wednesday

The ashes used for Ash Wednesday are made from the blessed palms used in the Palm Sunday celebration of the previous year. The ashes are christened with Holy Water and are scented by

exposure to incense. While the ashes symbolize penance and

contrition, they are also a reminder that God is gracious and

merciful to those who call on Him with repentant hearts. His Divine mercy is of utmost importance during the season of Lent, and the Church calls on us to seek that mercy during the entire Lenten

season with reflection, prayer and penance.
