Parish Announcements and Activities
This year we are still hoping to be able to provide Christmas gifts to our Seniors. We will have to do the bags in a different way. Instead of taking a tag and filling it, we will be collecting individual items. These will be put together to make Ladies or Men’s Bags. These are the things we are looking for:
Kleenex, Hand/Body Lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, ladies and men’s socks, soft socks, ladies and men’s deodorant, work search books, shampoo, conditioner, small chocolate bars, small bags of chips and cheesies, men’s aftershave, calendars, necklaces that go over your head without undoing the clasp, men’s/ladies body wash, pudding cups.
Items can be dropped off at Julia Barber’s house at 78 Ridge St. Norwood/ at the rectory/or Julia can pick them up from you. We would like them before the end of November. Just put items in a plastic bag or in a box. If you wish to donate money for this project, Julia will shop for you. If there are any questions please call Julia Barber at 705-639-2292.
A SPIRITUAL EXPERIMENT
As more parishioners appear to be returning to Sunday Masses and capacity is still 30%,
St. Mary’s Parish in Campbellford has decided to introduce a fourth Mass at 7:00 p.m. on
Sundays for the months of November and December to see if there is a need.
If numbers are sufficient the Mass will continue if not it will be cancelled.
Parishioners from St. Paul’s Parish, Norwood, Our lady of Mount Carmel Parish,
Hastings, St. Alphonsus’ Parish, Wooler and St. Jerome’s Warkworth are welcome to
those who have been “missing in action” for a while.This experiment will commence on
the Solemnity of All Saints on Sunday, November 1st.Please pray for the spiritual
success of this endeavor.
Celebrate Mothers Day:
Help us sell books of tickets on a hand knit afghan.
Tickets are $2.00 or 3 for $5.00.
Due to cancellation of events, and the ongoing closure of various businesses and organizations, the draw date which was to be on Mother’s Day May 10th at 11:45am, will be differed until a later date which will be made known well in advance, when it will have been determined.
For books of tickets please contact Lisa Cossar 705-639-1223, Paula Kartes 705-639-5318 or Chris Christl 705-778-5224
Proceeds will help cover the cost of repairs to the Rectory.
