This group nurtures and fosters a sense of community life and fraternity
in the parish. It generously coordinates and facilitates the planning,
organization and operation of fund-raising and social events in the
parish. The fund-raising events include the parishs garage
sale (in the fall) and Auction (in the spring).
The social events include the Annual Parish General Meeting (in November)
and the Valentines Day Party (in February).
Care and Share
This group underscores the image of our parish as caring and sharing.
It provides support to the needy and afflicted people in
our parish community.
Development and Peace
Working for justice, development and peace is at the heart of the Gospel
Message and so the Canadian Bishops endorse the Canadian Catholic Organization
for Development and Peace (CCODP). In cooperation with other Churches,
they continue to bring the needs of the less privileged before the
of our country and encourage all to respond to Gods generosity
by supporting the works of CCODP. During Lent, a collection
is taken for developing countries. Christians are urged to share their
goods with others; their offerings should reflect the money saved through
penitential fasting and set aside for Gods poor people. Generous
donations are dearly welcome. In fall, CCODP also offers an awareness
program about living conditions and injustices in developing countries
and thus call us to say NO to injustice in the world.
The Fabrique is an Ecclesiastical Corporation. Each parish in the province of Québec,
by virtue of the Fabrique Act, is obliged by law to establish a Fabrique.
It is charged with acquiring,
possessing, holding and administering property for the practice of the
Catholic faith in the parish for which it is established. It is composed
of the President, the Parish Priest (Pastor) and six wardens,
one of whom is the Vice President. As part of this formal function as
the financial backbone of the parish, members are devoted to overseeing
the overall operation of the parish. They facilitate collections for
internal and foreign mission projects. They meet every second Tuesday
of the month except in July and August.
