The Book of Remembrance
is available throughout the month of November at the back of the church. You are invited to inscribe in it the names of all family and friends whom you would like remembered in prayer by our parish community during this month.
Next Sunday, November 19th you are invited to join your fellow parishioners for coffee and cookies following 10:30 Mass. On this Sunday we will also welcome our Syrian family, Hola, Jessica & Christa to join us so we can become better acquainted with them and learn of their adaptations to life in Montreal.
Ascension Choir Christmas Concert
The members of our Parish Choir would like to invite all parishioners to join us for an afternoon concert featuring choral music for the Christmas season, under the direction of our Music Director, David Szanto. The concert will take place on Sunday, December 3rd, at 3:00pm in the church. A reception will follow the concert. Proceeds from the concert will go towards helping cover the cost of refurbishing our beautiful Casavant organ.
Election of Wardens
On Sunday December 10th immediately following the 10:30 Mass a meeting of all parishioners will be held in the Parish Room for the purpose of electing two wardens to replace the two who are completing their term of office on December 31, 2017. Any parishioner, 18 years of age, who lives within the parish boundaries, can be nominated to serve as a warden. The term of office is 3 years, and can be renewed once. The role of the warden is to assist the Pastor in managing the financial and temporal affairs of the parish. If you would like to submit your name to serve our parish in this way please speak with Fr. MacEachen. Nominations will be received up until the meeting for the election.

The Living With Christ Sunday Mass books for the coming Liturgical Year are available for sale this weekend at the back of the church. The cost is $5 each. As we have a limited supply, you are encouraged to purchase your copy as soon as possible and to write your name in your book.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food” (Matthew 25:35)
We have a new tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a more 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. A list of suggestions for nutritious non-perishable items is posted below.
Keep in mind that over 860,000 Canadians visit food banks every month,
with over 36% of the donations feeding hungry children.
