Response to the Earthquake in Nepal
The earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25th had terrible repercussions, killing over 7,000 people and
injuring more than 14,000. An estimated 3 million people are in need of shelter and food. Development and Peace is
coming to the aid of the earthquake’s victims through our Caritas partners in Nepal.
The Canadian government will match, dollar for dollar, all of the donations made by Canadians to support the
victims of the earthquake in Nepal until May 25, 2015. Donations made through the parish will not arrive in time
for the Federal government match-up program, so we encourage you to donate to this project on-line.
To donate and receive a tax receipt online, please go to https://www.devp.org/en
either for Mass or to the Sick, are invited and encouraged to attend a time of sharing and reflection
on Wednesday, May 20th from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
in the parish hall. The agenda for this time includes
a short faith teaching by our new Deacon Paul
Blair, time to share your experience in the ministry,
logistical discussion of the ministry, and fellowship
time over a light lunch. There is no cost to this time
together but if you wish to bring a sweet treat to
share you are most welcome.
This is a wonderful opportunity to grow together
in knowledge of our faith and get to know each
other more as brothers and sisters who share
in this important ministry. My regrets to those
who are unable to meet during daytime hours.
I hope to have a time together in the evening
soon. - Please RSVP by leaving a phone message
or by email no later than Monday, May 18th. This
will help in knowing how much food to prepare.
