    The Giving Tree

    In support of Rosalie Hall this Christmas, the Catholic Women's League (CWL), will have a Giving Tree set up at the entrance of the church. The CWL encourages all parishioners to take a leaf from the tree with gift suggestions written on it. Please bring the leaf back along with a new and unwrap gift for the needs of young and single parents and their newborn children. Gifts can be dropped off by the altar or the Angel Tree.

    The Giving Tree will be at the entrance of the church from November 4 to December 17. Thank you for all your support.

     
    All Souls Day – November 2

    We will celebrate mass at 8 am and 7 pm.

    Beginning November 2 until November 30 we pray for our deceased loved ones and all souls in purgatory. Kindly write the names of your deceased loved ones on the All Souls Envelopes found in your donation envelope package. More special envelopes will be beside the All Souls Box at the front of the church. Please place your envelope in the box provided or in the collection basket. During the month of November at all masses we will generally remember all the intentions placed in the box.

    Humanitarian Relief
    Over the course of the past several weeks, hurricanes, tropical storms and violent earthquakes have devastated a number of countries in the Caribbean and Mexico.

    In an effort to support people in that region who have been impacted by these disasters, the Archdiocese of Toronto is accepting funds that will be sent through Catholic relief channels. Relief workers from the official Catholic relief agency, Caritas Internationalis, are on the ground.

    Those wishing to help may do so in the following ways:

  • Online through the Archdiocese of Toronto website: www.archtoronto.org;

  • By phone through the Development Office - 416-934-3411;

  • Through the parish, making cheques payable to: Precious Blood – 2017 Hurricane, Earthquake – Disaster Relief

  •    
    December 17, 2016 marks the 175th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Toronto, kicking off a year-long celebration of this historic milestone.
