NO BALL TOO SMALL: Looking
for scraps of yarn to use for joining crocheted and knitted squares to
create blankets for the homeless and lap afghans for residents in seniors’
homes who have no family. Place the scraps or small balls of yarn in
one of the baskets on the bottom shelf of the Lending Library Bookshelf.
Thanks in advance!
A CALL TO SERVE THE LORD QUIETLY?:
Maybe the Lord is nudging you to help him in a quiet
“behind the scenes” manner. We are looking for people who are willing
to be sacristans who set up the altar on Saturdays and Sundays. This
is a small time commitment to serve our Lord. Talk with Father Rick or
Deacon Mathew to learn more.
OUR MILK BAGS ARE BEING TRANSFORMED!: They are being
woven into mattresses and shipped overseas to those in need. Over 700
mattresses were made in Ottawa area last year. Remember - we collect
clean folded milk bags, eyeglasses, pop tabs and used postage stamps and
place them in the boxes located in the church entrance hallway.
BOOK EXCHANGE: Lots of interesting books!
Come browse and take books home to read. Check out the bookshelf by
the church. You may keep them, return them or pass them on.
STAMPS FOR THE POOR:
You may have noticed
a container at the entry to the church where we collect stamps
for the Redemptorist Burse. These stamps help provide meals for needy
children and families. We appreciate your donations all year.
PARKDALE FOOD CENTRE:
Please bring your non-perishable food items for the Parkdale Food Centre. Another way to
help consider a personal monthly donation through their website -
neighbours are in need!
