Threads of Hope

The NCSS is running a fundraiser for our partner parishes El Divino Rostro and St. Padre Pio in the Phillipines. We are doing that with an initiative with Threads of Hope bracelets that are currently for sale at 2CAD per bracelets (the profit of 1.35CAD will go directly to our partner parishes). These bracelets will be sold on Tuesdays and Thursdays during soup and bagel, SNS or just anytime, you feel like it really, just make sure to contact our VP Social Justice – Jody Wong at 514-232-3425 or catch her running around the Newman Centre.

Talk on Pastoral Home Care

There will be a talk on Pastoral Home Care, what it’s all about (in basic terms; ministering for the sick and elderly-but we’ll keep you in suspense and have you show up for more information), and about the training sessions that we are about to have in Pastoral Home Care come January. The talk will be given by the Cathie Macaulay, who is the coordinator of Pastoral Home Care with the Archdiocese of Montreal (who will also be in charge of the training program later on). We really hope you will be able to make it, despite the rush of midterms (or life in general).
