Fr. Mirek will call the children forward at the beginning of Mass and the group will return to the church during the offertory song. Parents are welcome to attend with their children if they are not comfortable attending on their own.

The Knights of Columbus annual Wheelchair Fundraising Drive runs the month of February. The wheelchairs from lasts year’s program were successfully delivered to the Ukraine.

This year’s program will go to Costa Rica, an impoverished country with considerable need for wheelchairs, especially children.
Wheelchairs still cost $195 and there are a number of payment options available, including donating online through the Canadian Wheelchair Foundation Website. See the attached PDF (donor form) for more information.
