Next Breakfast

December 9, 2017

Guest Speaker: Dr. Elizabeth Thambiraj

Elizabeth had the blessing of being brought up in a Christian family. She attended mission schools and universities. From the early age of five she was aware of God and that Jesus loved her.   Elizabeth’s education and upbringing provided for a firm faith foundation in God’s word.   This helped her face tremendous struggles and challenges during which time God proved Himself very faithful beyond imagination. Elizabeth attributed all of her educational and professional success to the unseen hand of God and was able to trust Him even in the most impossible life circumstances.   She has a Masters of Divinity in Biblical counseling and helps women and some couples facing difficulties in their lives as well as being an author and speaker.   Elizabeth has been married to her husband of 32 years, a Bishop of the Anglican Orthodox Ministries of South Asia and an Orthopedic Surgeon doing charity work in India and Africa.   Together they have three children who are all strong in their faith of Jesus Christ.   Come and hear Elizabeth’s testimony as she gives glory to Jesus!

 January 13, 2017

PLEASE NOTE:   From this date our monthly Prayer Breakfast will be held at    St Theresa's Parish (7508 29 Ave NW)

Guest Speaker: Deacon Emmanuel Ekanem

Emmanuel Ekanem, is a seminarian at St. Joseph Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta, for the Archdiocese of Grouard-MacLennan. He will be ordained a priest in 2020. His native homeland is Nigeria where he became a computer software developer before he received the call from the Lord nine years ago to become a priest.

He had a mother who provided him with all the motherly care and guidance necessary to form a personality that was religiously, socially, emotionally and intellectually sound. Emmanuel was encouraged by a friend and faithful witness of Jesus, who he met in high school; she was instrumental in his conversion to the Catholic faith from the Muslim religion. He discovered Jesus Christ through Marian devotions and later became a Catholic in 1997. This friendship further led to the conversion of five of his family members (including his parents) from Islamic religion to Catholicism; it was the best thing that happened to him and them. In August of 2015 Deacon Emmanuel came Canada to finish his theological studies for the priesthood.

Guest Speaker: Lorraine Dotto
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I have two older brothers and a younger sister. We grew up in Winnipeg until my father was transferred to Edmonton in 1974. We became members of OLPH Parish since our arrival. In 1977, I graduated from Archbishop Jordan High School. I attended NAIT and received a degree in Administration in 1981.

I worked as a secretary for a couple of construction companies before taking the position as a Chiropractic Assistant for 15 years. From there, I was hired on at OLPH Parish where I’ve been the Administrative Secretary for the last 7 years.

I met my husband Gerry in 1978. We were married in August of 1982. We have four beautiful children; a daughter Brigitte, a son David, a daughter, Michelle and our youngest son Marc. We were blessed with a beautiful family!

But in 2006, a young offender took the life of our son David at the age of 22. My life was now in turmoil. Happiness vanished - I wanted to be “dead” with my son. Shattered and giving up on life, Jesus and Mother Mary intervened to save me.
