Remembrance Day

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in the eleventh month of the year 1918, an armistice was signed, ending the”war to end all wars”-World War II.

November 11 has therefore been set aside as Armisitice Day- Rememebrance Day, a day to remember with gratitude the men and women who have served their country in the armed forces.

Almighty God, thank you for the courageous service of all those who have died as a result of war.
Console those who have suffered their loss.
Watch over all who are serving in uniform today, all peace-makers and peace-keepers, who seek to keep this world secure and free, and who risk their lives and make great sacrifices on our behalf.

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 encourage the citizens of Quebec to give generously to organizations that provide assistance directly to people displaced and affected by the war.
Those wishing to contribute to this effort may contact Catholic humanitarian aid organizations, such as Development and Peace (Caritas Canada), which has set up an emergency campaign for Ukraine; the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA), which is a papal agency active in Eastern Europe; and Aid to the Church in Need, which assists local churches. In this spirit, the Secretariat of Catholic Bishops of Quebec has pledged a donation of $10,000.

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:
– Medical supplies (bandages, wound products)
– Baby Food and Powder milk
– Baby Pampers
– Female sanitary products
A box for these items will be put at the back of the church.

We thank you wholeheartedly for your generosity.

Food Bank Donation

We have a new tradition in our parish to support the hungry on a more continuous basis. Over 860,000 Canadians visit food banks every month, with over 36% of the donations feeding hungry children.
