PARISH NEWS - 8 November 2021
If you cannot attend in person you will also be able to “tune in” and watch, engage and enjoy the service, beginning at 10 a.m. on YouTube. The link is provided on the parish Facebook site and website.
Christmas gives us the opportunity to focus on the needs of children in our community. In church, you will see “snowflakes” appear on our walls with instructions attached. These “snowflakes” will reflect children’s requests and needs as provided by St. Matthews House. We know you will support this wonderful program so well managed by Jackie D., Carleon H. and all their friends who provide assistance at this important time.
If you know of any families in our parish community who might need assistance over the Christmas season, please let the church office know.
GREAT response to the request for sewing assistance. Still need some sowers (not sewers as previously advertised) for the bags. Material was donated – thanks.
