Christmas - A Time for Giving
Each year The Society of St Vincent De Paul, Holy Name asks you to support our Giving Tree. This is about taking a dove and buying a toy or gift for needy children in our community.
This year, along with the doves, we are offering you the opportunity to give a gift donation in the name of your friends, family and colleagues. This is a gift that 100% supports the less fortunate of our community and helps St Vincent de Paul continue our work of helping those in need. Please consider taking a gift card package from the Giving Tree and give a gift that gives back.
We are also looking for parishioners to sponsor families at Christmas time. Let’s share our abundance with the less fortunate in our parish community. Please phone Holy Name St. Vincent de Paul at 416-469-0842 and leave a message.
Please pray for all who are ill, especially
Michael Goodstadt, Ann Gilbride, Michael Rerrie, Sunny Carr, Kay Bennett, Eli Robinsky, Lorraine Hygaard, Helen McGrath, Ann Vince McGrady, Catherine Leithwood, Patricia & Jeanette Cull, Madeleine Corrigan and Maria Jose Bouey.
