Theme of Project Advance this year: “Empowering our Parish Vision”
Our Project Advance campaign continues this weekend, volunteers will be available after all the Masses to assist you. Thank you to all those who have generously responded to our appeal. This year, your gift will primarily support our parish’s many needs, such as replacing the church roof, a new sound system for our church, and repairs to our parking lot. It will also provide the necessary funds for the initiatives of the Archdiocese. Please consider prayerfully donating to this year’s campaign. We are counting on your support! Every gift is important. Donations can also be made online at www.projectadvance.ca.

“...whoever does not take up his cross and follow after me is not worthy of me.”
Pope Benedict XVI said, "The world offers you comfort. But you were not made for comfort, you were made for greatness". "Comfort" puts me first. "Picking up your cross and following Jesus" puts God and others first. Why settle for comfort when you can achieve greatness! Pick up your cross, ask Jesus for guidance on using your gifts, and live the life God intended for you!
