World Day for Grandparents

and the Elderly

Sat. July 27th / Sunday July 28th


    Let us take time to remember our grandparents and the elderly on this special day. The theme chosen by Pope Francis for this year’s celebration:

“Do not cast me off in my old age” (Psalm 71:9)


    Parishioners (young and old) are invited to honour both grandparents and the elderly by writing a note, a memory, a prayer or drawing a picture and placing them in the box or basket provided at both entrances during the month of July. These tributes will be brought to the altar at all masses on that weekend.

         The CWL’s new Homelessness Project invites us to look at ways we can all help the homeless.  To donate to shelters in the region items for the homeless, is one easy way. Most shelters welcome donations such as clothing and hygiene products.  During the winter season, donations of blankets and warm socks are greatly needed.  A Homelessness Box has been placed in the side entrance for donations of these most needed items. 


       Thank you for your support.

Every First Friday of the month, we will have Adoration following the 9am Mass, until 10:30am.  This will replace the Adoration previously at 8am on First Saturdays.  Moving Adoration to this time will allow more of us to come and spend time with our Lord.


Email scams are on the rise again.  If you receive an email from the Pastor or any Priest asking for a favour or to run an errand, do not reply to it.  Scammers are getting very sophisticated.  Always check the email address of the sender, if it's not one you recognize don't reply to it, replying to their email may compromise your computer.  If you are uncertain please call the Parish Office.
