PAVING OF THE PARKING LOT
We have received approval to proceed with the paving of the parking lot to the west of the church. This will provide us with an additional 76 parking spots. A sketch will be posted shortly in the Narthex of what the parking lot will look like. We have started submission of applications to the city for the permits to proceed. We expect to receive these permits by mid April at which time we will go out to tender for construction. We expect the construction to occur during the summer and look to have it completed by the end of September.

This Pontifical Collection will be taken during the Good Friday celebration on April 7 2023. Those unable to attend the service, or who prefer to contribute online , may do so by Interac e-transfer or Canada Helps by visiting www.commissariat.ca/supporting-us.
