Advent Giving Tree 2020

This year, more than ever, the support of our parish is needed for the women and children of Lurana Shelter, a refuge for those fleeing from family violence. We are unable to have you take stars and angels from the Giving Tree. All items must be new, not promoting violence, and unwrapped. Drop off your gifts by the Giving Tree located in the gathering space of the church during the weeks of Advent up until December 20.
 
Giving gifts cards is strongly encouraged (suggested maximum amount per card is $25) and, if purchased from the Knights of Columbus, results in double giving (contact Ken at kshivak@shaw.ca or 780-434-0632 to purchase gift cards). Drop off gift cards in the locked box outside the parish office. The Catholic Women’s League is coordinating this project once again and thanks everyone for their support.
