Chaplain’s Corner Padre Andrew Whitman It’s Cold. So cold I dread leaving the nice warm ice-rink to go outside.

As though the air itself rushed in to warm its frostbitten hands around the hearth fire of my pocket-temperature keys, andRead More

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Marcin Rosinski Sometimes when we pray, we also embrace those moments we wish would not exist. None of us wants to experience pain, but we cannot always avoid it.

Chaplain’s Corner Padre Jacques Tremblay Summer is here and during this season will come time for vacation and for some a new posting. What are your plans for this summer? Perhaps the most important thing is not what you will do but how you are going to be during this period. In other words, how will you maintain or recover good moral this summer, whether at work, with your family, on vacation or in theRead More
