“I will lift up my voice and sing from my heart….Hallelujah to the Lamb!”


Those were the words that pierced the quiet of an April evening and echoed throughout the Church after the spirit-filled LSS baptism at St. Boniface Parish --- joyful voices that came from 76 LSS graduates who were touched by the Holy Spirit and whose lives will never be the same.

Indeed, the LSS conducted by OSG/BLD ushered the start of something truly wonderful at St. Boniface Parish. But it was not without its unique challenges. While the Parish Pastor, Fr. Bernard Lee, was supportive of BLD’s initiatives to organize an LSS and start an OSG Prayer Group, other existing prayer groups and organizations in the Parish took exception. Serious work had to be done to reach out to them, constantly emphasizing a collective effort to build and work as one family. The task was made more challenging as differing expectations between the Parish and the OSG core members had to be managed more effectively, just as communication channels had to be better streamlined. Yet, it is through these trials and challenges that we experience our Lord’s power and loving grace. In Sirach 2:4 it is said: “be patient…..for in fire, gold is tested.”

Through perseverance and faith, the Lord poured out His blessings abundantly and the OSG-St. Boniface Prayer Group was born. And it was fitting that on its first Prayer Meeting after the LSS on May 28, 2015, the reading was from Matthew 28:19: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…” Without doubt, the roads ahead will be rough and the trials many, but as this new Prayer Group takes its first steps to discover its identity and plant its roots in God’s vineyard, it will always be guided by the leading of the Holy Spirit and inspired by the thunder of joyful voices that once pierced the quiet of an April evening: “I will lift up my voice and sing from my heart….Hallelujah to the Lamb!”
