PARISH EVENTS GROUP
This group nurtures and fosters a sense of community life and fraternity in the parish. It generously coordinates and facilitates the planning, organization and operation of fund-raising and social events in the parish. The fund-raising events include the parish’s garage sale (in the fall) and Auction (in the spring). The social events include the Annual Parish General Meeting (in November) and the Valentine’s Day Party (in February)
Working for justice, development and peace is at the heart of the Gospel Message and so the Canadian Bishops endorse the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CCODP)
In cooperation with other Churches, they continue to bring the needs of the less privileged before the people of our country and encourage all to respond to God’s generosity by supporting the works of CCODP. During Lent, a collection is taken for developing countries. Christians are urged to share their goods with others; their offerings should reflect the money saved through penitential fasting and set aside for God’s poor people. Generous donations are dearly welcome. In fall, CCODP also offers an awareness program about living conditions and injustices in developing countries and thus call us to say “NO” to injustice in the world.
