September 2023: Hello lovely people of God! It was a beautiful day today to be working on the newsletter, and He helped me finish in time.  Thank you, Jesus! I look forward to working with you again in the months ahead and seeing you out and about.  May you have a wonderful September! Suzanne

July 2023: Wow!  June was a VERY busy month for our council!  You will find the details inside the newsletter.  God bless and have a great summer!  Right now, I am watching fireworks from my sunroom and know that I am blessed to live in this great country.  Happy Canada Day, everyone!  Suzanne

June 2023: Hah!  I bet some of you thought I wouldn’t make it on time!  😄  I will be making another newsletter in July, so until then, enjoy this beautiful weather that God has given us. I will be seeing some of you this weekend for the MB Provincial Convention.  Can’t wait!
Suzanne 🙂

May 2023: Happy anniversary today to Jennifer & Too Opara!  So glad to be able to finish the newsletter after the AMM this past weekend.  
May the month of Mary and Mother’s Day find you surrounded with love.

Viva Christo Rey!
Suzanne 💓God’s blessings upon you and your home,  Suzanne Moore

April 2023: As we head into the most important week of the liturgical year, I wish you a blessed holy week and a joyous Easter.  And I am looking forward to seeing many of you at our Annual Meeting of Members at St. Mary’s in Beausejour, April 29th.  
God’s blessings upon you and your home,  Suzanne Moore

March 2023:
Let me give my excuses for a late newsletter!
First, just before our pilgrimage to Israel, I dropped my 7-year old computer and busted it.  I’ll deal with that when I get back.
Went on a 10-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land with my husband and upon return, turned around and went to the States for the weekend to celebrate our grandson’s birthday.  I got home Sunday night.
Monday, I tried working my shift at the thrift store and had to go home because of fatigue (jet lag, I presume).  Tuesday, I couldn’t move.  Wednesday, I forced myself to go to the city to purchase a new computer.  Came home and went to bed.  Still exhausted.
Today, I felt great and back to myself.  Better get the newsletter done!  I am using my husband’s old laptop that keeps shutting down when it feels like it and doesn’t hold a battery charge.  Talk about Lenten patience.  
Anyway, all is good and God is good!  The newsletter is done and I am awaiting my new and improved computer.  Hopefully, they were able to retrieve the files from my old one 🙁
May the Lenten season provide the time for prayer, fasting and alms giving for you as we ponder on our Lord’s sacrifice for us.  May God bless you and yours.
God bless us, everyone!      Suzanne Moore

February 2023:
Hello everyone, Can you believe that we’re 1/12 of the way through the year?  January went by so quickly and February doesn’t look too relaxing either.  LOL  May your Lenten journey bring you closer to our Lord during 2023.  

If you are not aware, you can listen to Fr. Mike Schmitz teach The Catechism of the Catholic Church in one year.   During each session, Fr. Mike reads a few paragraphs of the catechism, offers a reflection on them and leads us in prayer.  The sessions are not long; 15-20 minutes per day.  Although we have gone through 31 days already, it’s really easy to catch up.  You can find The Catechism in a Year on Spotify, Apple podcasts, or YouTube.   It’s an excellent way to learn about our Lord and our faith.
God Bless,
Suzanne Moore

January 2023:
As we begin our new year journey together, please remember in your prayers a man to whom we are all indebted in a particular way for the gift of his faith and his service to the Church: Pope Benedict XVI.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O God, and may perpetual light shine upon him.

Happy New Year, everyone!  Suzanne Moore, editor

December 2022:
Can you believe how quickly that year went by??  Now we have to wait…wait for the coming of our Lord, born of a virgin in a stable.  May your days bring you peace and tranquility as we wait in humble hope for the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ this holy season.  God bless us, everyone!      Suzanne Moore

November 2022:
Hello everyone! Typically the most sombre month of the year, November always amazes me.  I mean, look how great the weather is right now!  I give thanks and now that I’m finished the newsletter, I’m going outside!  May you have a blessed week!      Suzanne Moore

October 2022:
Hello everyone!  Autumn — it is easy to love this season when we have such beautiful days as these.  In the midst of our busyness, may we never forget to give thanks to our Lord for all he has done for us and continues to do.  Happy thanksgiving!  Suzanne Moore

September 2022:

I made it in time!! I can tell you that it was difficult not to go outside today instead of working on the newsletter– 30 C and sunny!  Let us give great thanks for this beautiful weather and enjoy our fall season.  God bless!

Suzanne Moore, editor

July 2022:
Happy Canada Day, everyone!  May you enjoy the rest of your summer, take some time to relax and enjoy God’s creation with your friends and family.  I don’t usually publish a July edition, but there was a lot that happened in June.  As the song says, see you in September.
Suzanne Moore, editor

June 2022: Greetings everyone, Well this is certainly turning out to be a strange and remarkable year!  I haven’t planted my garden yet, nor my flowerbeds.  I’ll just have to wait to see what God has in store for us before I can make plans for the summertime. In the meantime, let’s continue to pray for the families, homes, farms and livelihoods affected by high and rising waters.  
I will be publishing a July issue of our newsletter this year, so be on the lookout for it.
God bless,
Suzanne Moore, editor

May 2022: Hello everyone,
April showers bring May flowers 🎶.  We know the weather will get better,  spring will arrive and we will see new growth.  Let us pray that we will also have new growth in our faith during this holy season of Easter.

April 2022: Hello dear sisters and spiritual advisors:
As we wind down to the most holy season of the year, let us not grow faint nor weary of our Lenten devotions and sacrifices.  Let us cultivate a sense of gratitude for our freedom and a sense of compassion for those in need, at home and abroad.  But most of all, let us rejoice in our Saviour, Jesus Christ!  
Happy Easter, everyone!
