World Day for Consecrated Life: a day to recognize and give thanks for those who have consecrated their lives to God, to learn more about the consecrated life and to pray for future vocations to this life. Feb. 2, 2004, the feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, commemorates the day that Mary and Joseph presented Jesus to the Lord. This is the day that we associate with the celebration of consecrated life in the world.

Retreat For Busy People

During Advent, a "Retreat for Busy People" was offered to 17 parishioners of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Toronto. For this five-day retreat, people continue with their usual schedule and agree to spend approximately 30 minutes in prayer daily and to meet with a Prayer Guide each day. In this way, it is possible to make a retreat without going away to do it.
