    "In remembrance" plaques available

    Dear Parishioners,

    In the back of the church in the vestibule area we have 2 “in remembrance” plaques which you can put the names of loved ones who have passed into the loving arms of Christ.

    Each Name you put on the name plate will be a cost of $300 per name.

    Each plate can only take a maximum of 2 names.

    These donations will go to our maintenance fund which will help up to purchase new kneelers for the church and improve our air conditioning system.

    You can take a blue maintenance envelope from your box of envelopes or at any church entrance and place the name you want on the name plate together with your donation and envelope number if applicable.

    God Bless you as we begin this endeavour.
    Fr. Xavier
