Christmas Dinners

Reminder: Our Christmas Dinner Collection begins this weekend.

Once again this year we will not be taking applications for Christmas Dinners due to COVID-19.

However, we will be accepting donations to help with dinners. All monies received will be passed on to the Christmas Exchange, and you will be credited for income tax purposes by us. The Exchange will distribute these funds to the organizations that can physically meet with applicants in our area who need help. 

We are late starting this year, so we encourage you to make your donations as soon as possible. We would like to pass along donations early in November so that the Christmas Exchange can determine just how many families will benefit.

Please place donations in an envelope marked Christmas Dinners, and make any cheques payable to Holy Redeemer. Thank you for your help.

COVID-19 Exposure

Public Health has informed us of a possible COVID-19 exposure at St. Pius X Church / Holy Redeemer Parish during a funeral on Wednesday, September 29, between the hours of 12 pm – 2 pm.

If you weren’t present at this funeral, you have no need to be concerned. If you were present, Public Heath advises that you self-monitor for any symptoms for 14 days after the date of the exposure. Our upcoming weekend Masses are not affected, and will proceed as scheduled with all usual COVID precautions.

Religious Education

Reminder:
Our Sunday morning Religious Education program is in need of volunteers. We have no teachers for grades 2, 5, 6, 7 or the new 2-year Confirmation program. We need parents and grandparents to consider volunteering as teachers/teaching assistants before we can start classes. Please call the office (653-6830) if you can help.
