CANADA SUMMER JOBS COLLECTION
In order to help students with summer jobs this year in the light of the government’s restrictive conditions on funding for students, the Archdiocese of Toronto has approved a special collection to fund summer jobs.
We will have a second collection for this program on the weekend of June 23/24.
Please help fund summer jobs for Catholic students.

Good Shepherd Refuge Casserole Program
Can you spare some time to make a casserole or two. We supply the recipe and the pans. All you need to do is drop it off frozen to our parish.
There will be a meeting Wednesday May 30 at 7:30pm in the church to learn more about starting this program here at Precious Blood. We are looking for a co-ordinator and volunteers to facilitate the distribution of the pans and recipes and storing of the frozen casserole in our freezers in the hall.
Hope to see you there.
