PEN PALS PROGRAM
We would like to introduce a new program at our parish that pairs parishioners together as pen pals to correspond with each other by either letter or by e-mail. The aim of this program is to pair people together to foster a connection between parishioners to make a new friend or simply just connect with someone else and get to know one another. If there are any seniors in your family who you think would like to join, it would be great to inform them about this opportunity too. Before joining, it would also be necessary to complete a training session. If you have any further inquiries and would like to join this program, you can contact Veronica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
