Church Roof Restoration Project

Wednesday, August 9th, 2023

We want to bring to your attention that the roof of the Church is in need of repair. The repair work will begin in early August and will conclude in late September. This is a major expense of approximately $500,000 that will be funded by our reserve fund.

In the fall, the finance committee will be outlining some ways and means to begin replenishing the funds over time.

We thank you for your understanding and patience during the time of the roof repair.

Ukrainian Family Sponsorship – July 2022

Friday, July 8th, 2022

As you are aware, our parish has committed to sponsor a Ukrainian refugee family to Canada as permanent residents. Our sponsorship makes us responsible to support and assist this family during their first year in Canada. Our Parish committee of 20 members will assist them with everything from securing and equipping housing, language training, education where needed, banking, shopping, recreation, medical appointments and all the other things it takes to settle into our country.

This will be the fourth refugee family our parish has assisted in the last 10 years. The prior three families are all doing well and all have become Canadian citizens.

We have yet to be matched with a Ukrainian family but we are aware of a local church that has received their refugee family.

We will, of course, need your financial assistance to make this sponsorship a success. The government of Canada requires us to raise a minimum of $35,000 to support a family of 4. To achieve this we are now accepting donations through the parish office.

With your support we can live the gospel to which we are called.

From Mathew 25: For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

Thank you.
