RCIA – RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS
ATTENTION – THESE EVENINGS ARE FOR PERSONS INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH.
This is an invitation to come to our first meeting OCTOBER 4th AT 7:30PM in the Library.
Come with your questions, your curiosity, your point of view. They will be the basis of our discussions.
TO OUR PARISHIONERS: Because our Parish Community is considered the official teacher and guide for possible new members, it is important that some of you help by being present and by sharing your faith in various ways that are comfortable to you.
ADULT CATHOLICS: who wish to celebrate the Sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation are welcome also.
For more information, please call Mary Landry at 416 – 221 – 8866 ext. 224

THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE – GOOD SHEPHERD MINISTRIES
We have received our annual appeal from the Brothers of the Good Shepherd for our assistance during the Thanksgiving Season. You can participate by bringing non-perishable food items on the weekends of September 24th, October 1st, October 8th and also on Thanksgiving Day, Oct. 9th. The following is a list of urgently needed items: canned vegetables and meats, rice, canned soups and stews, cold breakfast cereals, cookies, tea, instant and ground coffee, hot chocolate, sugar, powdered milk, powdered fruit juice, powdered soup bases (chicken & beef), ketchup, paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Kindly drop off your donations at the front doors of the Church and place them in the designated containers. You have always supported this appeal so generously. Please keep up the good work.
CASSEROLES FOR THE GOOD SHEPHERD CENTRE
Thank you to the volunteers who prepared 25 casseroles for September. For October, your prepared casseroles (frozen please) will be collected at the Masses on the weekend of October 28/29 for delivery to the Centre. More volunteers are encouraged to become active in helping to feed our less fortunate sisters and brothers. We would like to return to the monthly number of casseroles we had last year, which were about double this month’s total. If you require more information or would like to get a copy of the recipe and a casserole pan, please contact Irene Albrecht at 416-221-2791.
The parish is creating a social club for all people between 20 and 30 years of age. Whether you want to network or meet people to hang around with, you are welcome! Our first meeting will be in the Church (date to be determined). All who would like to join or who need more information are asked to email Felipe Sanchez Rijckewaert at: email@example.com
