CASSEROLES FOR THE GOOD SHEPHERD CENTRE

Thank you to the volunteers who prepared 46 casseroles for the Good Shepherd Centre for December. For January, your prepared casseroles (frozen please) will be collected at all the Masses on the weekend of January 24th and 25th for delivery to the Good Shepherd Centre. More volunteers are encouraged to become active in helping to feed our less fortunate sisters and brothers. 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.

VOCATIONS

The Son of God is manifested to the world first through the visit of the magi. Today, God’s Son is brought into the world and is present to the world through His Church. If you think God is calling you to a Church vocation, call Fr. Liborio at 416-968-0997.
