 Email Scam

An email scam has surfaced again in the Archdiocese. The scam email

purports to be from your parish priest, who is asking for money or gift cards because of some urgent need; for example, to help someone in hospital.

Please be assured that no priest of the Archdiocese would ever legitimately ask for money in this way.

We encourage you to report such incidents to the

Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre and delete the email message.

 

 

 

 

   

 

Children’s Liturgy is looking for volunteers

Children’s Liturgy is a volunteer run program that teaches the

Liturgy of the Word in terms children can understand.

Children’s Liturgy is always looking for help.

The program is very easy to follow and without volunteers the

program cannot continue. Please contact Charmaine at the parish office, 403-347-3114 for more information.
