"With God and Jesus Christ excluded from political life,with authority derived not from God but from man,the very basis of that authority has been taken away,because the chief reason of the distinction between ruler and subject has been eliminated.The result is that human society is tottering to its fall, because it has no longer a secure and solid foundation." (Pope Pius XI in Quas Primas, December 11, 1925)
REBUILDING SAINT ELIAS – It was with sadness and shock that we witnessed our church building burn to the ground on the morning of Saturday, April 5, 2014. We are greatly relieved that no-one was injured, and grateful for the support that started to pour in before the flames were even extinguished. Those of us who were blessed to experience the beauty and tranquility of our dear church know how much it will be missed. Those of you who were around to build it know how much work lies ahead. But for now, we thank God for those things that fire can not destroy, and remind ourselves that God’s people are the Church. We will build a new home for them. Temporarily, online donations can be given through CanadaHelps.org HERE.
