Weekly Donation Envelope Boxes
Parishioners are reminded that the 2019 boxes for weekly donations are available at the main entrance of the church. Please be sure to pick up only the box that has your name and number on it. Boxes are in alphabetical order. If you don’t have a donation envelope box—but would like to make your weekly donations to the parish using this method, or if you have any questions please contact the parish office.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food”
During these cold winter months we are reminded that hunger does not take a break. With the Christmas food drives ended, we would like to invite you to continue to “Feed the Hungry” by remembering to bring 1 non-perishable food item to Mass every weekend. Donations can be left in the special bins located to the right of the main Altar & at the back of the church and will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s Food Bank. We appreciate your consideration and generosity.
A Note From our Accountant
For the persons with envelope numbers 59, 212 & 335 : we thank you for your donation, but request that you please write your name & address on your envelope so that we can appropriately record the donations and send you your tax receipt at the end of the year. Thanks. God Bless You!

Our Mass Setting
Our choir sings the Mass of St. Frances Cabrini Mass Setting by Kevin Keil.
It is simple and should be easy for all to join in. However, for those who would like to accelerate their learning, a choral version of the Mass is available on YouTube:
Mass of St. Frances Cabrini Mass Setting by Kevin Keil
The parts that we are singing include the Gloria, Sanctus, Memorial Acclamation A, Amen and Agnus Dei (Lamb of God).
“For I was hungry and you gave me food” (Matthew 25:35)
We have a tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a continuous basis.
Bring one non-perishable food item to Mass every weekend which will be sent to the foodbanks.
Donations can be left at the back of the church and will be delivered to St. Willibrord’s parish food bank.
