Local News : Archbishop Thomas Collins’ Book Signing Event
on 2011/2/27 1:50:00 (1233 reads)
Local News

Archbishop Thomas Collins stands out among our bishops as a Shepherd who is quite at home with his sheep, with no wall separating the two, him and us. The reason, as Fr. Thomas Rosica has mentioned in his recommendation of the book, he is "a shepherd who lives in the "House of the Word." His life is rooted in the Word of God. Such people will not only live according to the Word of God, but will also use every opportunity to tell others about the beauty, the strength and the fruits of the Word of God. Archbishop Collin's Lectio Divina series, delivered at St. Michael's Cathedral once a month, and now his book, the Pathway to our hearts, are his way of guiding us to reach the Heart of our Heavenly Father, by first offering our own hearts to Him.

The schedule for the book signing event at Pauline Books and Media located at 3022 Dufferin St., Toronto, ON, M6B 3T5 is as follows:

March 11, 2011 6:00pm-8:00pm
March 19, 2011 12:30pm-2:30pm

Light refreshments will be provided.

Thank you and God Bless You!

Events : Mangalorean Association of Canada - Executive Committee 2011-2012
on 2011/2/2 1:00:00 (2724 reads)

The Mangalorean Association of Canada (MAC) had a very fruitful 2010. The Annual General Meeting held in November saw a change of guard with a newly elected Executive Committee (EC). The AGM witnessed a real drive towards unity among Mangaloreans in the GTA and within Canada and a keen passion to keep the flame of our culture and traditions burning brightly especially through our beloved Nativity Feast (Monthi Fest).

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the outgoing President, Maxim D'Mello and EC, who have served the Mangalorean community tirelessly by promoting MAC in the GTA and within Canada. Their dedication to the community has led to the recognition of MAC through Mandd Sobhan. In December 2010, MAC was bestowed an award by the Indian President, Smt. Pratibha Patil for promoting the Konkani culture, language and traditions in a foreign land.

We warmly welcome the new President, Ronald Fernandes who has boldly taken on the challenge to serve and promote the Mangalorean community through the association over the next two years. The new Executive Committee (EC) met to envision the future and dedicate themselves to elevate MAC to new heights and even greater success.

MAC will continue its commitment to the Mangalorean community with a greater plan to instil a sense of pride in our rich culture, heritage, religion and language. The ultimate goal is to mobilize the torch of our traditions as we have received it and pass it to the next generation. To that end, MAC will continue its tradition of the Konkani mass held on the first Saturday of every month at Sts. Martha and Mary at 6:00pm. We will celebrate the Stations of the Cross in the Lenten Season and the Solemnity of Monthi Fest in September.

In the outreach to the youth - the leaders of tomorrow, MAC will continue to provide a platform for developing leadership through sports, literacy and cultural events. Look forward to connecting with us through Facebook and Twitter in the weeks to come!

MAC encourages you, the community, to participate, get involved and take pride in your roots, your language and your heritage. We look forward to seeing you all at our monthly Konkani mass and the events listed below. Join us in weaving a distinct Mangalorean thread in this multi-cultural tapestry within Canada.

The Association is incredibly blessed to have a resident spiritual director, Rev. Fr. Edwin D'Souza. Here is a link to an article published in Bellevision on Fr. Edwin:
