  7. Coins for Life Please return the Coins for Life collection boxes to the parish office. Contributions will be forwarded to the relevant organization. Thank you for your support.

  8. Support Catholic Education - As Catholic, we should be supporting Catholic Education. Make Sure Your School Support Designation is English Separate (Catholic) on your Property Tax Assessment. It’s a powerful message in support of Catholic education. Even if you have been an English Separate supporter in the past, the designation DOES NOT follow you when you relocate. Every time you move or if there is a change of ownership, it is essential that you register yourself as an English Separate Catholic school supporter. Please verify that you are registered as an English Separate school supporter by checking the assessment section of your Tax Bill or Property Assessment Notice or your Voter Information Card received during an election year. To register or change your direction of school support, please fill out a form in the narthex and return it to the Catholic District School Board.

  9. The 2017 Tax Receipts are now available to be picked up in the nartex. Thank you for your generosity during the year.
