From the Pastor’s Desk
Greetings in Christ the Lord!
Psalm 91 states, whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High, will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
On behalf of our Parishioners, friends, benefactors and well-wishers, who built our parish community here in Oakville, I welcome you and offer thanks to Almighty God for bringing you all to our church.
At the heart of everything we do is the Eucharist, the life giving bread and saving cup. Jesus says, “I am the living bread which descends from heaven, whoever eats this bread, will live for ever”. Hence the Eucharist is the centre of our Christian life; it sustains us, animates us and inspires us in all we do. May I invite you all to actively join us for daily and Sunday Mass. I promise to remember you all in my daily prayers.
May our Patron St. James the Greater be for us a constant reminder that the true life mission of a Christian is always pointing to Christ.
We look forward to welcoming you when you visit or join us at any of our spiritual services. In the meantime, please feel free to follow our Facebook page: St. James Catholic Parish and check our website for more information.
God bless you all abundantly.
Fr. Joseph Ahilan CRSP.
