    Quick Info Sheet

    Welcome to Precious Blood Parish


    NEWS
    From the Pastor's Desk

    Saint Vincent de Paul

    This year is the last time we will have a liturgical decoration collection. I have decided to add this year's liturgical decoration collection to the Saint Vincent de Paul collection that was collected last weekend also. At this time of year there are so many families in need.
    Thanks again for your generous support.

    God Bless,
    Fr. Xavier

     
    Volunteers Needed!

    We are presently in need of volunteers to help bring Holy Communion to our elderly and shut-ins who can no longer come to Sunday Mass. It will be a once or twice a month volunteer work depending on your time availability. You will be commissioned as Eucharistic ministers of the sick. Training will be provided. If interested, please see Doree or call the rectory office

     
    Thank You!

    The Children's Christmas party was a great success. Thank you to the Parish Social Planning Committee and volunteers (decorators, kitchen help, games coordinators, cookie decorators, music and Santa) who helped make it a very special day for the children. Also thanks for all the gifts received for Rosalie Hall.

     
    The Giving Tree - Until December 17

    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.

    From the Pastor's Desk

    The giving tree is going well. Keep up the great work.

    We are delivering some of the gifts this weekend to Rosalie Hall . You have another couple of weeks to pick a leaf or two with a gift written on the back and bring your unwrapped gifts in to the church by the altar. God Bless.

    Our Cross that was ordered in Bethlehem during our past pilgrimage has arrived.

    This cross is made totally from the olive trees that are in the Holy Land and is a tangible link to our sisters and brothers in the Holy Land. This Cross will be placed in our church soon and be used during the Good Friday Liturgy.

    Angels Among Us

    Beginning the first Sunday of Advent (December 2 &3) we will have a small cut-out of angels available near the Christmas Tree throughout Advent. You can write messages or the names of your loved living and deceased relatives and friends on the angels and then place them on the Christmas Tree in the Sanctuary. This will be our prayer and a reminder that those who have gone before us remain part of our Christian family.
