Our parish responded generously to the national call to sponsor a refugee family in 2016. The family we sponsored came from Columbia that summer. With the help of parishioners and our refugee committee, the family has been supported with material goods, financial assistance and friendship as they learn English and adjust to life in Canada. To ensure that the family can live above the poverty line, we are having a second and final fundraiser for the family.
If you wish to donate, you may make a donation at the back of the church today and next weekend, through the offertory collection at mass over the next few weeks or online through the parish website.
Donations large or small are welcome as part of our parish commitment to this courageous and grateful family. We thank you for your generosity.
