Podium Announcements Mar 31, 2017



We praise and thank the Lord Jesus Christ for a spirit-filled YLSS # 18 which was held last weekend in Mississauga and facilitated by Rev. Fr. Armand Galay. We have total of 29 YLSS graduates: 6 from BLD St. Catharines, 7 from BLD Cincinnati and 16 from BLD Toronto.


We thank the BLD community for all the prayers and support, your presence during the Sunday graduation rites and celebration of the Holy Eucharist means a great deal. We also thank the parents and guardians of our Youth candidates, the sharers, shepherds and co-shepherds, and the working team from the youth ministry and other BLD Toronto ministries. To God be the Glory! FROM THE




Next Friday, we will have a second collection during our First Friday Mass on April 7 regarding the Church Project at the Covenant House in Cavite, Philippines. This will be the final collection for this purpose. We thank you all for your generosity and support.



We invite everyone for the Veneration and Exposition of Sacred Relics on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. There will be more than 150 relics in exhibit in the OLA basement hall from 7 pm.




Life — we stand on guard for thee!

This year marks the 20th National March for Life in Ottawa and the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation. This year's theme is "LIFE - We stand on guard for thee."


Pro-lifers will gather on Parliament Hill to demand that our laws once again uphold the right to life which is inherent to every human being, as they once did, even 150 years ago. The March for Life is the largest annual demonstration on Parliament Hill, and a sign that ending abortion is the civil rights movement of our day.


As Christian, we should be deeply concerned, it is our moral obligation to oppose these injustices. Let us make the trip to Ottawa on Thursday, May 11, 2017 and together voice our opposition to these evils. Please join us, a bus will pick up at SFX Mississauga at 6:00am and leave (OLA) Our Lady of the Assumption Church at 6:40am on Thurs., May 11, and return later that evening. The cost of a seat on the bus is $30.00/person.
