This week the parish learned that we could finally move from the Centre to the new offices in the rectory. For this reason the office will be closed this entire week from December 10 to 17. In the event of an emergency, please call the office and leave a message.
The parish is looking for volunteers to help decorate this year’s Christmas Tree on Saturday, December 15th at St. Peter’s Church following the 5pm Mass. All volunteers who wish to help, are asked to meet at the back of the church near the confessional. Coffee and festive treats will be served. See you there!
Every year the parish relies on the generosity of parishioners to decorate the church with flowers. If you would like to make a donation to purchase flowers, please make your donation by using the envelope “Flowers for Christmas” marked with your name, address and envelope numbers. Thank you for your generosity.
Advent confessions will be held in the Church on Saturday, December 22, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Please plan on joining your fellow parishioners in this time of spiritual healing as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ.
