"Praise Adonai - 2017 Highlights"
An Outreach Mission by Living for Christ Prayer Community
Every year, the ‘Praise Adonai’ was hosted by Saints Peter and Paul Prayer Group. It was held at Don Bosco Secondary School on December 31, 2016. The 14th year 2016-2017 event's theme was " Now to Him who by the Power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine ". (Ephesians 3:20). The program began with the Holy Rosary.
As we spend a few hours before midnight, the choir featured the Praise and Worship. The choir contributed and enhanced the celebration by specially selecting meaningful spiritual songs. It was led by the servant leader Olympio Fernandes together with Desiree D’Cunha. It was truly soul-searching and gave the over 500 members of mutli-cultural diverse prayers groups in the Archdiocese of Toronto participated in spite the cold weather. It has always touched the hearts of the faithful. This was followed by the well acclaimed catholic charismatic preacher, Sr. Hazel D’Souza who focused on the supreme prominence of repentance, forgiveness and Prayer. Healing and adoration were the second focus of the event, where we brought our aches and pains to God.
There had a special program for youth organized by the young Seminarians of St.Augustine’s Seminary and members of the prayer group. They entitled as “Trap” Spiritual Skit based on Jesus’ forgiveness to the Adulterous Women. The audience were astounded and amazed by the performers who acted their role with confidence and iconic performance. The lovely voice plus an outstanding acting by Nicole was rated a showcase with dramatic flying colors reviews.
Holy Mass took place at midnight by Fr.Edwin Gonsalves, Rector of St.Augustine’s Seminary of the Archdiocese of Toronto, Fr.Joseph Ugochukwu Alozie, CCE, Fr. Ravi and assisted by Deacon Sarfaraz Pinto that was actively participated by all who attended the event. Fr.

Team Jesus - Living for Christ Prayer Community
To every one of you on Team Jesus: we draw close to Jesus our coach. We let Him guide us and help us become a better version of ourself, a better team player. We ask Him to impart the Holy Spirit upon us more powerfully to upgrade our skills as an intentional disciple, to make us a better, more skilled, and devoted player on His team.
We meditate on His Word in the Scriptures; make our home in the word and let it transform us and direct us. We listen to His encouraging words and let them build us up and send us forth with confidence, not in ourself but in what He can do for us and through everybody.
As we continue in "the game", the mission Jesus entrusted to us, be attentive to the encouraging cheers of the angels and the cloud of witnesses who were on Team Jesus in years past and now cheer us from heaven. We know that Coach Jesus is always with us; He is for us; and has our best interests at heart. At times the discipline we have to endure may not seem pleasant, but the end result is the fact that we become a better, more devoted disciple and team player.
Team Jesus: your team and mine! Alleluia!
"6th Year Anniversary - Building our community to the next level."
"Now go home and have a feast. Share your food and wine with those who don't have enough. Today is holy to our Lord, so don't be sad. The joy that the Lord gives you will make you strong" (Nehemiah 8:10).
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
NEHEMIAH 2:20: "So I answered them, and said to them, `The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or right or memorial in Jerusalem.��
It feels delighted and delightful to receive good news. It also feels great to share positive news! It's fascinating how Scripture often associates mountains with the proclamation of good news. A Christmas Carol says. "Go. Tell It On The Mountain That Jesus Christ is born." In the Mount of Olives Jesus commanded His disciples to be taken the Good News into the entire world (Matthew 28:19). In Mount Olivet, Jesus ascended into heaven the angels proclaimed He would return (Acts 1:6-12).
This is exactly what we're doing at the Living for Christ Prayer Community. Through 6 years, in serving our Lord, we are heralds, declaring the Good News. We are so blest. We served as a reminder of our mandate to proclaim the Good News to the whole world. We thank God for his mercy and love to us.
All we need, are your fervent prayers and intercessions, you are investing in the work of changing lives. You're a herald, helping proclaim God's Word where it's needed most. We are also grateful to announce with you.
We are also grateful to proclaim with you.
ALL for the Glory, Honour, and Praise to our God.

by Bishop Sam Jacobs
The FCCCPC Team Canada scrambled Thursday (October 27, 2016) how to go to Florida. We have experienced some type of memorable road trip and spent almost 27 hours. We acknowledged that God has blessed us with a rich stamina and with our Triune God is on our side. We had reached the hi-way to the Lord of Mercy. It was a super special moment to hang with a very meek and humble Archbishop Jose Palma where His Excellency renewed our 45 year of Holy Matrimony. To sum up, It's PRICELESS!!!

|Living for Christ Prayer Community - Focus on Jesus Christ
"Journey to Lent" - WORD EXPOSED "
The focus of the 'New Evangelization' presents us with a unique opportunity to see again. Fr. Philip Chircop words give us an indication of our starting point. The effectiveness of our Lenten recollection will depend upon the authentic faith of our relationship with the Lord. The closer we draw to the Lord the deeper we feel his love and as a result, the more aware we become of our own inadequacies and failings. This experience draws us ever deeper into a desire to be holy and gives us the incentive to receive the grace to practice the virtues of holiness. This is the fertile soil in which the evangelic spirit takes root and bears fruit.

God comes in disguise
A good brother or sister is hard to find. We make many acquaintances throughout our lives, but a brother or sister who sticks with us through thick and thin is a special gift from God. As such we treasured them
But God has its purpose for us; we have to accept everyone to come into our prayer group. God came in a disguise manner in form of a Homeless Lady. She comes every Friday with a two big heavy bags in her hand. Everybody put extra efforts into this relationship such opening their purses and offering clothes to help to her. Everyone put extra effort to make her comfortable and helped her by referring to government institution. But she seemed determined to live on the streets. She gaves her beautiful smile though she is emotionally hurt by her life.
Sister Gina we will be missing you but we know you are in a better place now and back to our Lord our maker. Please intercede for us.
Today Lord, I thank you for our Sister Gina that you have blessed us with; she is truly an asset that we treasure very much. If we have done wrong to you forgive us. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon her. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
"I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,you did it to me."
Would you be my prayer partner?
Priests have extraordinary responsibilities before God. They are responsible for the souls of those they guide and are held accountable for the souls of those they guide.
We pray for priests from whom we have received Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, without the priesthood there cannot be the Eucharist. Without the Eucharist there would be no Sacrifice of the Mass, no Holy Communion, no Real Presence of Jesus Christ on earth, where He continues God's Plan of Salvation ... the way to possess eternal life.
We want to bring the truth and joy of God�s Word to your life
Happy Birthday. May God continue to bless the work of your hands and grant you continued favor in your life.
From Jesus Calling for you.
Trust Me enough to spend ample time with Me, pushing back the demands of the day. Refuse to feel guilty about something that is so pleasing to Me, the King of the universe. Because I am omnipotent, I am able to bend time and events in your favour. You will find that you can accomplish more in less time, after you have given yourself to Me in rich communion. Also, as you align yourself with My perspective, you can sort out what is important and what is not.
We, the People of St. Peter's Church, are the Body of Christ with one objective "one body and one mind". Since each of us is equally blessed with a unique spiritual gifts that are ours to share to build the Body of Christ. In our journey as family of God, we are called to share in different ways. Our stewardship of our community requires that we give our best to share our talent and time, as well as our treasure and pray to God to help us to fulfill our purpose in life..

"Logo's Theme" - Isaiah 6:1-5
In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.
And one called out to another and said,
“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts,
The whole earth is full of His glory.”
And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke.
Then I said,
“Woe is me, for I am ruined!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I live among a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”
