Ogilvie Road Fire 

Early this week a fire at the Ogilvie Road Coop completely destroyed a number of dwellings.  Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, but all the families affected have been displaced.  One of the families affected are members of the Annunciation of the Lord parish.  As a parish we want to support the family.  A list of items required by the family will be included in next week’s News and Notes.

For those of you wishing to make a financial donation, you can do so by placing your cheque or cash donation in an envelope, clearly marking “Ogilvie Fire”, your envelope number and/or name and address and dropping the envelope in the basket at Mass.   

Spiritual Bouquet for Deacon Joshua 

Parishioners are invited to offer up prayers, rosaries, novenas, masses and time in adoration for Deacon Joshua’s ordination which will take place on June 4.  There are paper flowers as prayer indicators available in the Narthex, or make your own. “Plant” your paper flower in the garden on the bulletin board located in the Narthex.  There will also be a notebook in the Narthex beginning this weekend if you would like to leave a longer message for Deacon Joshua on his very special day.
