Property and Finance Committee Update… We have the following projects planned for 2015:

  1. Replacement of HVAC Roof - Top Units - June 2015
  2. Two of our six units have reached the end of their life-expectancy (and have stopped providing air-conditioning). They are being replaced with high-efficiency units (for which we will receive a rebate from Enersource).

  3. Interior Lighting Project - July 2015
  4. As announced in February we will be installing new LED energy efficient lighting fixtures in the sanctuary and centre section of the church, re- lamping all other lighting in the church with LED bulbs, and co-ordinating it all with a new lighting control system. This work, which was schedule originally for March is now to begin in late June. It will result in our weekday masses being moved to the parish hall for most of July…. we ask for your patience during this period.

  5. Parking Lot Expansion/Access to Glen Erin Drive Project - August/September 2015
  6. We are excited to be in the final stages of City of Mississauga Site Plan Approval for this major improvement to our very limited parking here at the church with a net gain of 146 new paved parking spots (on school board land where the current baseball field is situated) as well as right in/right out access to Glen Erin Drive. Please see the display in the church foyer this weekend for a detailed site plan and parking layout.

  7. Replacement of Flat Roofs – Parish Hall - Fall 2015?
  8. We noticed a number of water leaks this past winter and what began as a “patching project” has turned into a recommendation for a complete roof replacement for the Hall Roof…we are now investigating further and will keep you posted as to future plans and costs.

We anticipate partially financing these projects through our participation on the Archdiocese of Toronto, Family of Faith Capital Campaign (beginning in September 2015). As part of this campaign for the needs of the Archdiocese each parish retains 25% of the funds raised up to the parish goal, and 75% of funds raised beyond the parish goal. I thank you in advance for your generous support of this campaign as you learn more about it in the coming months.

We appreciate and thank you for your generous contributions to ..

ShareLife 2015: Working wonders for those who need help in our neighbourhood…

“What an ambassador for Mary Centre he was, and Gord was really tickled to be chosen for this role as co-speaker”said Dominic Conforti, retiring Director at Mary Centre. Gord, who is intellectually challenged, shared his story at the 2014 ShareLife Golf tournament about how he and his two brothers came to be part of Mary Centre. He spoke about Christina who helps them during the day involving them in activities in the community and teaching them to do things for themselves. Then there was James who is with them on the weekends and helped them grow a veggie garden every spring and summer and the pride they feel when they pick their vegetables. Last year, over 2,300 people with special needs received the compassion and care they needed to enjoy their life and be productive in their homes and communities.

So far this year $170,000 has been contributed to date towards our parish goal of $229,000! Your ongoing support will help many in our community and around the world.
