Would your family like to bring the joy of Christmas to the less fortunate? Most importantly, we want to ensure our Saint Vincent de Paul families have a good meal. Can you help with groceries? To accommodate a variety of food preferences and dietary restrictions, we suggest donating food gift cards from No Frills - the only lower cost grocery store within the parish boundaries. For a family of 2 - 3, we typically recommend $75.00, a family of 4 would be $100.00. Cards in denominations of $25.00 are easiest for us to organize. If you would like to bring additional cheer by providing small gifts, then may we suggest giving gift cards from local department stores such as Walmart in denominations of $25.00. This provides parents with the opportunity to purchase a gift for each member of their family. Donations may be brought to the church through December 15th. To find out more about sharing the season with a neighbour in need, please leave your name and phone number on the Saint Vincent de Paul voice mail box 905-890-5290 extension 700 by December 10th and a volunteer will return your call.
Come and join us to celebrate the Feast of our patron: St. Francis Xavier on Tuesday, December 3 at 7pm. We will begin with a Solemn Mass followed by procession of the Relic and a potluck get-together in the parish hall. Please inform the parish if you will be bringing in a dish. Novena to St. Francis Xavier will begin on November 24.
