Ogilvie Road Fire 

Last 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 these families, the Goodmans, 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 include:

  • Clothing (Womens XS, Mens Medium, Mens XXL) 
  • Non-Perishable Food Items (Peanut Free) 

For those of you wishing to make a financial donation, you can do so by visiting the parish website’s donation page (from the dropdown box select Ogilvie Fire) or 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.
