Knights of Columbus make donation to help with Summer Jobs Program for Youth

 

Knights of Columbus make special donation to CYO

 

In response to Bishop Crosby’s appeal to help the Catholic Youth Organization hire summer students, our Knights of Columbus Council 10091 members recently presented a $500 cheque to the CYO.  Our 4th Degree Knights, representing the Fr. Sean O’Sullivan Assembly, provided an additional $500 donation.

The Bishop’s appeal relates to the federal government’s refusal to provide summer jobs funding to organizations who will not attest to their support for, among other things, the right to abortion.  This requirement to agree to the attestation for federal summer student funding has severely impacted many Catholic organizations and parishes hoping to hire students this summer.

If you missed the special collection on the June 3 weekend, consider donating to the CYO on-line.

For more information on the government attestation issue, please see Bishop Crosby’s Pastoral Letter.

Farewell Fr. Ross!

A fond farewell to Fr. Ross who, after 3 years with us, will be moving on to his new assignment at Assistant Pastor at St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Hamilton. We thank Fr. Ross for his years of service to us and we wish him God’s blessings in his new posting!

A lovely time at our Mother & Daughter Princess Tea Party!

About 70 little princesses and their moms (grandmas, aunties, etc. too!) had a great time being princesses for the day, trying on tiaras, making jewelry, singing Disney Songs, learning about the Blessed Virgin Mary and of course taking pictures with Cinderella!

 

Good times at Youth Night – Bowling!

Another fun time at Family Movie Night!!!!

The kids had a blast playing board games, playing with play-doh, ping-pong, bowling, colouring, bingo and just spending time with friends! Oh and not to mention enjoying the movie “Coco!”
