SOCIETY of ST. VINCENT de PAUL – ANNUAL “Back-Pack to School & New Shoes Event“ – Sat. August 5th-Sun. August 27th. **Display will be in Narthex. DO YOU WISH TO HELP A NEEDY CHILD IN OUR PARISH COMMUNITY?   You can Sponsor a Child by purchasing a backpack and basic school supplies; or you can Donate Various School Supplies, Gift Cards, OR if you prefer, you can make a monetary donation (receipted) to our “Back to School” program. (Please use a SSVP envelope). Did you know, with your donations, we can buy each child a new pair of runners; and when they pick up their backpack, we also supply each child with a bag of healthy school snacks! This year we have 160 children looking to us for back to school help. (This number includes an extra 20 backpacks we will ask you to sponsor which will be delivered to our neighborhood schools for any child who arrives the first day of school without a back pack or school supplies. We enclose a letter to give to the parents with information on how the Society of St. Vincent de Paul may be of assistance to their family.) Please watch for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul display in the narthex beginning August 5, 2016.

Your support is very much appreciated!

ALL BACKPACKS MUST BE DROPPED OF BY AUGUST 27TH – THANK YOU!!

 

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CORRESPONDENCE AT MARY MOTHER OF GOD PARISH.  Is your child attending a Public or Private School in our parish community?  Mary Mother of God Parish offers a Religious Catholic Education correspondence program. In order for your child to receive the Sacraments of 1st Reconciliation, 1st Communion or Confirmation, it is recommended that they receive ongoing (year by year) Catholic faith development.

If your child is entering Grade 5 or 6 as of September 2017 and has not participated in a Catholic Religious Education program since 1st Communion, we recommend registering them in September 2017.   Confirmation Preparation is 2 programs of study. Completing the Grade 5 or Grade 7 program during the summer means they will only have to work on the Confirmation Preparation program in Grade 7. 

For further information, contact Marisa Patskou 905-337-2184 or pa.mmogp@bellnet.ca, our Catechetical Co-ordinatorA mandatory Information Meeting will be held September 14TH at 7:00 p.m.  All catechetical students and their parents are asked to attend.  You will receive program materials; meet our pastor Fr. John Van Hees, our Catechetical Co-ordinator Marisa Patskou and our program teachers. VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED TO HELP WITH THE PROGRAM IN SEPTEMBER – PLEASE GIVE THE PARISH A CALL!
