You are cordially invited to attend the Canadian Martyrs Parish Mission
with Father Larre, from Sat., April 6th to Thurs., April 11th, 2019
The parishioners of Canadian Martyrs are very pleased to have Father Larre preaching their Parish Mission. Father will introduce the Mission with a special sermon at the Saturday & Sunday Masses on April 6th & 7th. Then there will be many hours for individual confessions from Monday to Thursday during the Mission. Please make every effort to attend the Parish Mission.
Father Larre was born in St. Walburg, Saskatchewan, the youngest of 13 children. At age five he was paralyzed with polio and doctors said he would never walk again. But with many prayers by family and friends, and with much determination, he walked in three years! Later he lived and worked with over 400 troubled adolescents during a 20-year period. In recognition of his work with children, Father Larre received the Golden Jubilee Medal from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Good Servant Award from the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews for improving the quality of life for people in the greatest need, the William Kurelek Award from the National Pro-Life Association for having distinguished himself in providing a better life for needy and abandoned children, and in 1983, the Order of Canada, the highest honor awarded to Canadians, in recognition of his outstanding and highly distinguished contributions to his country. However, Father Larre was the first to return his Order of Canada in July, 2008, as a protest to the selection committee because this prestigious award was given to the abortionist Dr. Morgentaler. Then in 2012 Father Larre received the Diamond Jubilee Medal from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
Father Larre has his Master of Arts, Master of Education and his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology. Currently, he lives in Coquitlam, B.C. and works with many children in Canada and other countries where the Sisters of Mary who care for orphans and the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres at their hospitals for the very poor. Father preaches parish missions across Canada and the U.S.A.

Introductory Mission Sermon
The Most Important Decision in Life
The most critical decision is whether to choose Christ's loving Way of the Cross, or the soft, popular diabolical road of selfishness, evil and violence. Can we trust in God's Infinite Mercy and return to the Good Shepherd?
Mon. April 8, Mass: 6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7:00 pm
Clinging to Faith in a Godless Society
The greatest challenge is to live our faith, at all costs, within a materialistic, hedonistic, secular society that ignores God. We must trust God's Infinite Mercy and His Mother Mary will lead us back to the All-Loving, All-Forgiving Jesus!
Tues. April 9 Mass: 6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7:00 pm.
Maintaining Hope in Hopeless Situations
The most difficult task is to never lose hope, to fight off discouragement and depression even when you feel totally helpless in hopeless situations where nobody seems to care. You may feel abandoned, but remember Jesus will always be with you and you'll never walk alone!
Wed. April 10 Mass: 6:30 pm, Mission Talk:7:00 pm
Building a Loving Home in a Selfish Society
The most difficult task is to create a Faith-filled, loving, family in a confusing, selfish, world that is struggling to cope with stress, drugs, violence, and pornography. It is essential to pray together as a family every day and beg our Blessed Mother's to protect us from all the terrible temptations of our modern life.
Thur. April 6 Mass: 6:30 pm, Mission Talk: 7:00 pm.
Bringing Love to a Violent, Hateful Society
The most rewarding task is to become a missionary of Love and bring the Love of Christ to your family and your community. By Baptism, you are a missionary and you must bring the Merciful Christ to others. Our pagan world teaches us that happiness is found in becoming famous, rich, and enjoying all the sinful pleasures of our world. But our Merciful Lord is asking us to be humble, self-sacrificing and serve the poor. So "Take up your Cross and Follow Him". Give yourself totally to Jesus.
