SPECIAL SENIORS MASS & LUNCHEON
Join us on Dec 21 at 12pm for mass, fellowship, and good food! This month’s luncheon is provided by the Queenship of Mary as a fundraiser for their new convent being built in Plantagenet, Ontario. It’s an opportunity for us to support their good work!
Registration closes on Dec 18 so we can calculate numbers for the meal, or when we reach 200 registrants. Spots are filling up quickly, so be sure to register soon!
CHRISTMAS CAROL CONCERT
On Dec 18th at 2pm, come enjoy Christmas Carols sung by members of Annunciation parish! The concert will also be livestreamed to residents of senior homes who are unable to attend the concert in person, so that they too can enjoy the music. There will be a time of fellowship in the hall to follow.
If you have any questions, you can contact Paul Cuddihy at 613-266-2776 or Bob Norman at 343-880-8068.
Behold is a brand new event at Annunciation! On December 22 from 7-9pm, join us for a night of Eucharistic Adoration with praise & worship, followed by a time of fellowship in the hall. There will be a talk from Fr Joshua, and confession available throughout Adoration.
This is the perfect way to prepare your heart for Christmas and the coming of Christ. All are welcome. We hope to see you there!
If you would like to donate a Poinsettia to help decorate Annunciation’s sanctuary and grounds for Christmas, you can bring your purchased flowers to the church on December 23. If you drop off the flowers earlier, please leave them in the hall and ensure the soil is moist. We ask that you do not bring donations any earlier than December 21.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
The KoC “Coats for Kids” program strives to provide a warm jacket to every school child in Ontario who doesn’t have one. Today, more than ever, there are children and teens in need of proper winter clothing but who go without. The weather is getting chilly; when you put on your own jacket, think of the difference a warm coat can make in a child’s life, especially in our cold climate!
If you know of a child or teen in need of a winter coat, please contact the Knights of Columbus at firstname.lastname@example.org or david.hnatiw@gmail or text 613-314-6264 with contact details. Thank you to all those who have donated.
