The Situation in Ukraine
We are all distressed and filled with indignation with the situation in Ukraine.
We pray together for an immediate ceasefire and an end to this horrific war.
The Bishops of Quebec are appealing to Canadians to support the relief efforts to assist the people who are in great need. The bishops encourage us to support the humanitarian aid organizations which are providing support to the Ukranians.
You may send your donations to one of the following groups:

Our parish is also collecting certain items to be given to our Ukranian Church in Montreal (which will be sent by the Church to Poland to assist the Ukranian refugees.)
Items to be collected:

– Female sanitary products
A box for these items will be put at the back of the church.
We thank you wholeheartedly for your generosity.
