NEW TO THE PARISH? WELCOME!
We are happy to serve
You can be a hero for those in need! Your year-end gift will double in value!
From now until the end of 2022, your contribution to our parish’s ShareLife campaign will be matched by an anonymous donor up to a total of $1 million. When you give to ShareLife, you support agencies like Mary Centre. Here’s how your contribution makes a difference for the work of this agency:
“Thank you to all who donate to ShareLife. With each donation we receive, we are able to attain our goals of assisting people in their efforts in building a good life, and also providing a safe place for people with a developmental disability to stay so that their families/caregivers and themselves can get some needed respite.”
Our goal this year is $106,000. To date we have achieved $84,600. Please give using a ShareLife envelope, online through our parish website, or at sharelife.org/donate.
OUR CHRISTMAS APPEAL
All donations, large or small are appreciated. They can be placed in the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Box after Mass or dropped off at the church.
For further info refer to the handouts at the back of the church or contact us through the church office at 416 282 0370 ext 217
CHILDREN'S LITURGY IS BACK
It is held during the first part of Mass. The children are invited to the Sacristy to follow the Liturgy of the Word at their level. They hear the same Gospel that is proclaimed in Mass. Just before the gifts are brought up, the children return to their pew and join their family, to continue the Mass.
We are looking for volunteers. We welcome students in grade 7 to post-secondary and adults to the team of Children’s Liturgist. There are many roles and responsibilities available so if you are interested, please contact Lavern Walters at firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE ROSARY APOSTOLATE
We are seeking volunteers who have great devotion to the Mother of God to visit our elementary schools to pray the Rosary with the children once a month. Training will be provided. Contact Bonnie Washer: 416-284-5772
