The Kids Bulletin

The Kids’ Bulletins are a resource for Catholic kids who would like to have some fun while learning about the readings from the Sunday Mass every week. (Ordinary Form)  They are made by a mom in Canada who is happy to share them with anyone who can use them to help learn or teach about the truth and beauty of the Faith. Feel free to use the puzzles and/or comics separately. 

Update From The Society of St. Vincent de Paul 

Since March12 through to September 30, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul has been assisting those in need through the pandemic. During this period we have made 59 physically distanced visits with a total of $4,685 worth of grocery gift cards (and other necessities ) to 10 adult males, 22 adult women and 14 children under 18. The SSVP is grateful for the continuing monetary support from our parishioners. Without your help we would be unable to assist our neighbours who are hungry, isolated and who need  to know that God loves them.

Please consider making a donation by placing an envelope directed to SSVP in the collection box at the back of the Main Hall while at Mass or by mail. Cheques are made payable to Society of St. Vincent de Paul and tax receipts are available to those who identify themselves. Mail to:

SF Knights of Columbus C5080
Knights of Columbus steps into the breach and stand in service to our parishes and communities – especially in this time of crisis.
Many communities have been encouraged to limit public contact and self-quarantine. As a result, many people are cut off and isolated from their family, friends and neighbors. They likely have needs that you can help address. Some may require food and medical supplies. Some may need a conversation or prayer. Whatever the need, Knights are encouraged to assess and creatively support the needs of their broader community. 
To join our efforts or to receive aid, send us an email to  #LeaveNoNeighborBehind in the tittle or contact us through our Facebook page
