GARDEN PARTY DONATIONS
We are planning our Annual Garden Party for July 30, 2017. This is the time to revitalize and plan for this special day. We will be forming a committee to organize and celebrate the events. To help offset costs, parishioners are asked to consider donating new merchandise to support our ticket spins. We need merchandise at a value of $15.00 or $20.00 for our wheels. Please consider donating now so that we can have plenty of prizes for our Garden Party. You may drop your donations off to the Parish Office.
Sincere thanks to Mr. Philip Rebello in restoring these two church stands. This work of labour took two months to complete and they will be used within our church. These church stands were found in the basement of St. Patrick’s Convent and were in much need of repair. The two stands have the image of the Sacred Heart and Our Blessed Lady. Once again, we thank Mr. Rebello for his generous labour of Love.
The Committee has completed its review of the comprehensive feedback received from the recent 17 Parishioner’s Consultation meeting held within the Archdiocese. The verbatim feedback is organized as it relates to the same six question asked at each meeting and therefore allows for better understanding for the overall responses to the six questions raised across the nine Pastoral Areas. This Parishioner’s feedback report will be available on the Archdiocese Website at www.rcsj.org during the week of March 27, 2017. Please visit this website to become updated on the results.
“Remember that when you leave this earth you can take with you nothing that you have received – only what you have given”. (St. Francis of Assisi)
