 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.

2020 Knights of Columbus Annual

WHEELCHAIR SUNDAY Fundraiser

The Knights of Columbus annual Wheelchair Sunday

fundraising drive for St. Mary’s Parish will run February 8 to March 1. Over the past five years, we have raised $57,010 and sent 297 wheelchairs to the Philippines, Ukraine, Kenya and our local Red Deer Lending Cupboard. A wheelchair costs $195 and this year we again will be providing 10 wheelchairs to the Red Deer Lending Cupboard and the rest will go to the Dominican Republic.  You can donate after any of the

Masses on the February 9, 16 or March 1 weekends. You may also drop your donation off at the parish office or in the

Sunday collection by March 15. Donation forms will be available at either entrance of the church during the campaign.

Please use an envelope clearly labelled

Knights of Columbus Wheelchair Sunday Drive” and make cheques out to the “Canadian Wheelchair Foundation”.

Thank you for your continued support.
