OUTREACH AND WELCOMING MINISTRY REJUVENATION
This is an open invitation to all parishioners to join in making St. Edmund an exemplary welcoming community. All are welcome. Simply send an email to email@example.com or call the Parish Office at 514-695-7100 with your contact information. The event will be to recognize the past contributions of our welcoming team to listen to each other and reflect on how to build from there and plan our next steps. Two meeting options are offered to accommodate as many as possible; you can choose either Sunday November 20th, 2:30 to 4pm or Thursday, November 24th, 7:30 to 9pm. A second meeting will follow in December to present the plan and ask for buy-in, devise a tactical plan, lay out a staffing schedule, with roles and responsibilities so that volunteers can be given guidance for action.
HURRICANE FIONA DISASTER RELIEF
Thank you to Saint Edmund of Canterbury parishioners who came to the aid of the victims of Hurricane Fiona with great generosity! Our special collection resulted in donations of $4895, half of which was directed to the special Port aux Basques Relief Appeal of Bishop van Roijen of the Diocese of Corner Brook & Labrador, and the other half to the Canadian Red Cross, at the request of the Archdiocese of Halifax & Yarmouth. Let us keep the victims of Hurricane Fiona in our prayers as they move forward with their recovery.
DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE – CARITAS CANADA
For over a decade, Canadian companies have been expected to care for the environment and respect human rights. And yet, the lived experiences of D & P partner organizations in the Global South demonstrate that existing measures are not effective in preventing human and environmental abuses around the world. Therefore, in the fall of 2021, D&P called on the House of Commons to adopt human rights and due diligence legislation. D&P wants the obligation to prevent human rights violations to be legally binding. Canadian companies will have to develop and implement human rights and environmental due diligence procedures for their entire supply and value chains and report on it. With due diligence legislation, if a company fails to undertake reasonable steps the victims of any harm will have access to meaningful consequences through Canadian courts. Using a petition signed by St Edmund parishioners, our MP, Francis Scarpaleggia, presented the call to adopt this law to the House of Commons June 13th and received a response August 13th https://petitions.ourcommons.ca/en/Petition/Details?Petition=441-00555. D&P continues the call for this law. The residents of Global South countries depend on us.
SOCIAL ACTION: CHRISTMAS FOOD BASKET PROGRAM
At the weekend masses of November 19th & 20th and November 26th & 27th there will be a special collection for the Christmas food baskets prepared by parishioner volunteers. These funds will be used towards buying the food items for the baskets. There will be designated envelopes in the church pews on those two weekends. The name and details of the needy families in our community are provided by the West Island Assistance Fund. Food baskets are delivered around the third week of December. There is a suggested food list. Depending on the total of donations, each volunteer will be assisted monetarily towards the purchase of the food items. This is a rewarding experience and teaching opportunity for children to learn compassion and generosity. If interested in helping with this project or if you would like to prepare a basket, please contact Catherine LoVasco at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 514-963-2718. Thank you.
CHRISTMAS FOOD COLLECTION 2022 – December 3rd and 4th
Our annual Saint Edmund of Canterbury Christmas Food Collection is back! This year, our collection for Montreal parishes and organizations in need of our support will include Saint Willibrord, Saint Francis of Assisi and Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette parishes as well as Resilience Montreal, a downtown shelter frequented by Indigenous Peoples. Basic food items as well as traditional Christmas treats are welcome to help seniors and low-income families share our blessings. Suggestions for suitable items can be found on the bulletin boards at the back of the church. Please remember that we are unable to accept frozen or fresh food items such as meat and dairy products. Watch the sales adverts to make your generosity stretch even further! Medium-size boxes for packing and delivery are welcome. We are actively looking for volunteers including students in search of community service opportunities to receive, sort and deliver our Christmas goods to the receiving parishes. Volunteer sign-up sheets are at the back of the church – all are welcome to join us! Alternatively, please call Vivian at 514-795-8507 to sign up.
LET US PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE SICK
