On the 16th of September the parish invited a guest to our church to speak about stewardship. He spoke at 3:00, 5:00 and 7:00 pm and there were a total of 33 parishioners to listen to a very informative discussion as to how we should attempt to involve the parishioners in the numerous responsibilities and needs of our church. Unfortunately we fell short of the numbers we hoped would attend. Hopefully we will have a better turnout for our Membership Drive in October.
On the 19th of September we had our Lorne Dowling Bursaries and 4 deserving students each received $1000.00.
A huge thank you to Dr Gerry Turcotte, the President of St. Mary’s University for his wonderful talk designed to encourage these students to reach for the top. It is always a great evening when we have someone of Dr. Turcotte’s calibur to speak to these young kids. Thank you also to everyone who helped to make this evening a success.
We had another couple of football games and I am grateful to all those who volunteer, however we could certainly use a few more volunteers so some of us could get a break. Please think about what you might be able to do to help us all out.
We have an open House in October at which time I hope to have a number of knights to help with some ideas that I have. I will keep you informed. Thank you Brothers.
