COFFEE AFTER MASS
Have you ever thought of volunteering at Church, but were reluctant because of your busy schedule? Well, maybe we have a solution! Would you be willing to give a bit of time before and after Sunday Mass once a month to prepare and serve coffee, tea and some treats to other parishioners? We would like to start this welcoming initiative in our parish after the 8am, 10am, and 12pm Masses in the near future but we need your help. Helping after Mass will be a great way to meet other parishioners and will help rebuild a sense of ‘community’ at Holy Cross. If you are interested, please call Makiko Morelli at 778-938-3244 or email email@example.com for more information.
Your tax receipts for 2021 are ready for pick up at the back of the Church after Mass. You will receive a receipt(s) for your regular envelope donations as well as your preauthorized, online and Project Advance donations.
LITTLE BOOKS FOR LENT
The Little Books for Lent are available for sale at the back of the Church for $2.00 each. Please place the money in the designated box.
Fr. Chris and the Parish Council made a decision to renew the Parish subscription to Formed.org for another year. Some of our parishioners suggested a special collection to cover the costs of the subscription. If you would like to make a special donation towards this, please put it in the collection basket in an envelope marked “Formed.org”.
Formed.org is essentially a Netflix for Catholics. It is run by the Augustine Institute and provides videos, books and audio talks for children, teens and adults. There is also a faith formation series. All parishioners will have free unlimited access to this program.
To sign up to Formed.org
- Go to formed.org/signup
- Choose “I belong to a Parish or Organization”
- Enter “Holy Cross Burnaby”
- Select our parish (make sure it is 1450 Delta Ave, Burnaby)
