Dear friends,

 

Another year has passed, and already so much has happened!!

 

This year we are celebrating the 15th anniversary of our foundation. We had an inaugural celebration on November 20th, but plan to hold several more events during the year ahead to mark this auspicious anniversary.

 

We have seen this past year as being the occasion of our building bridges with the Catholic Church, and this has borne fruit in our collaboration with Catholic Christian Outreach. CCO have sent Impact teams into the diocese ofOttawathis summer, including St Ignatius parish, where we are based now. Lift Jesus Higher has collaborated with St Ignatius to organize a door to door outreach in the parish, and to hold  a joint mass and barbeque on Pentecost Sunday.

 

With my appointment as temporary pastor of St Philip parish inRichmond, and its mission parish, St Clare inDwyer Hill Road, there has been further opportunity to build bridges into the diocese ofOttawa. We look forward to greater collaboration with these parishes, and to sharing what we have received ourselves in terms of gifting and anointing.

 

There has been a growth in numbers of people wishing to become a part of our community and we believe that the year ahead, 2012, will be a year of the favor of the Lord.

 

None of this would have been possible without your continued support. I wish to thank you for believing in us, and for encouraging us to be everything the Lord wants us to be. Be assured of our continued prayer for you, our benefactors, and our desire that you come into the fullness of everything the Lord plans for you in the year ahead.

 

Wishing you every joy and blessing,

 

Fr BobPoole

Director, Lift Jesus Higher
