Farewell Fr. Bryan

Fr Bryan will be moving to Ottawa for his new assignment with the Companions of the Cross in early July. There will be a reception after all the masses on the weekend of June 24-25. Please plan to stay after mass for a time of fellowship.

Bottle Return for Open Door Fundraiser

Please remember to return your coin filled baby bottles by next week, Father’s Day, June 18, to support the Open Door Center Fundraiser. Open Door Centre provides a safe place for youth who experience an unplanned pregnancy. They provide judgment free support as youth make critical life choices. 

Hospitality Reception Team

We have a new opportunity for parishioners to serve on a food hospitality team at the parish. Do you love prepping food, shopping for food or catering events, setting a beautiful table or serving in the kitchen in any way? Do you have a heart to serve others and provide an enjoyable celebratory environment of fellowship and food for parish events? If this sounds exciting to you, then perhaps you might consider joining this parish team. Please reach out to Mary Frances LeBlanc 902-476-1465 

Note: Our funeral reception team is a separate ministry from the Hospitality Reception Team.

Grief Support

Grief support is a non-denominational gathering, and all are welcome to attend and to bring a friend. Grief is normal, grief is hard work and grief becomes easier when shared. If you or someone you know is grieving and could use a safe place for accompaniment on the journey, then please encourage them to give this a try. Wednesday, June 23rd at 7:30pm.
