10TH ANNUAL EVANGELIZATION EVENT
in honor of OUR LADY OF KIBEHO & ST. JOSEPHINE BAKHITA
Saturday, August 19, 2023 Canadian Martyrs’ Shrine, Midland, ON
Transportation will leave Toronto @7:00 am & leave Midland @4:00pm
The Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará, a missionary Institute of religious sisters, are happy to be given the opportunity to speak at St. Joseph’s Parish on July 15 and 16 about their Institute and their mission in Egypt.
Here in Egypt, the missionary sisters work in several houses, providing education for children, teenagers, and young women. They also have a home for girls with special needs. Since most of the girls come from poor families, the sisters also take care of the families by giving them some assistance.
As Egypt is not economically stable at present, the sisters do not receive much help from the local people; thus, their mission truly depends on your powerful prayers and generous contributions to continue their work.

Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.
They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.
Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
