Meetings will begin on Monday, SEPTEMBER 17, 2007 at 7:30 PM. THESE EVENINGS ARE FOR PERSONS INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH. Because the Parish Community itself is considered the official teacher and guide for potential new members, it is important that some parishioners participate by being present and by sharing their Faith in various ways. Adult Catholics who wish to celebrate the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation are welcome. For more information call Mary Landry at 416-221-8866 ext 224.
If you are in Grade 5 or higher and are interested in becoming an altar server you may contact Thomas Li at 416-756-4995. The orientation and training for the new members will be held on Saturday, October 13th from 2:30 PM to 4:15 PM.
RESULTS OF THE MINI-SURVEY:
Thank you to all those who participated in the mini-survey in June. A total of 101 parishioners responded. From the results, it seems that the three types of activities most respondents would like to see more of are:
- talks/seminars (53%)
- service to the less fortunate (47%)
- social events (47%)
For talks and seminars, the topic most favoured is
- “moral issues that we face today” (67%)
- “social justice issues” (51%)
- “bible” (42%)
“Environmental issues” is another topic that is popular (36%).
When planning for this year’s activities, the parish team will take into consideration what you have indicated. Please come out and support the activities! Thank you also for the additional comments that you made on the questionnaire. They will be carefully considered, and whenever possible, implemented. Fatima Lee
