Annual Mass of Concern
Our parish will be celebrating our annual Mass of Concern the weekends of November 26-27th and December 3-4th.
Many of our less fortunate neighbours depend on our help for money to purchase food and other necessities during the year, but especially at Christmas.
Our parish contributes not only to individuals, but to other churches helping the unfortunate, organizations and groups that assist the needy and poor, such as Food Banks, Share the Warmth Foundation, the Open Door which aids the homeless, and an organization attending to the needs of battered women.
For those of you who use the Envelope Box for your contributions, an envelope is already in your box. For others, envelopes are available at the church entrances.
Receipts will be issued for identifiable donations.
Please do your part to brighten Christmas and the winter months for the many people who need our help.
Thank you for your generousity.

Month of Remembrance
Throughout the month of November a Book of Remembrance is available at the front of the church in which you are invited to inscribe the names of all family and friends whom you would like remembered in prayer by our Ascension community.
“May the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace.

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.
