From the Desk of Fr. Tim …

Welcome Fr. Freddy D'Souza sj
We welcome Fr. Freddy to our parish community. Fr. D’Souza is a Jesuit priest from the Gujarat province in India, and is visiting his family in the parish over the next few months. Since Fr. Francis will be away in India for the month of July and Fr. Tim will be away for two weeks in August, Fr. Freddy will be assisting with weekday and weekend masses. He will be the homilist for the parish feast day mass on July 31 (see below).

ShareLife 2014: Together We are Continuing to Work Wonders
Thank you to those who already made a donation to this year’s campaign. As of last Sunday we have received $205,000 towards our parish goal of $255,000. All donations received by July 31st will be included in this year’s campaign and so I ask those who have yet to make a contribution this year to do so, if possible, over the next few weeks. Donations are welcome via credit card, cheques (individually or post-dated) or cash- please clearly mark the envelope with your name and envelope number so that we may offer a year-end tax receipt for your generosity. Your ongoing support will help many in our community and around the world.
