Parish Events and Announcements

A huge thank you to everyone who supported Christmas Backpacks for Ukraine!

Through the efforts of our Parishioners, a total of 50 bags and a monetary donation towards the purchase of items were donated.

All donated items have been delivered to Edmonton and were shipped to Ukraine, in order to get to there in time for Ukrainian Christmas. Your generosity will give much needed supplies and hope to orphans and poor children, especially during this time of great stress and uncertainty brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.
