Angel Tree Program 2020

Detailed Information    

The Angel Tree Program for this year is coming a close with deliveries planned in the next week. 

Please bring any Angel Tree donations to the church or online as soon as possible (see below). 

 

We thank everyone for their generous donations.     

With your help we were able to assist 75 St. Paul the Apostle Parish families, 100 seniors and 130 adults at Bethany House. This means all of them can have a brighter and more joyful Christmas than they might otherwise have had.                                                                                                               

The spirit of Christmas lives on with your generosity!

 

 

We are offering 2 ways to donate:​

 1) Online, the much preferred way with no requirement for masks, safe distancing, etc.

 

On-line donations via Canada Helps: donations made through this new link will be send directly to our parish SSVP account and can be made using a credit card or PayPal. 
 
If you are donating for the Angel Tree program, you can designate your donation to “Angel Tree (Christmas)” in the box titled “Apply your donation to a fund set up by this charity)
 

 2) Cash or cheque with Angel Tree donation envelopes.  Envelopes will be available at each mass during the month of November.  

     Please return envelopes during mass times or drop off at the church during regular office hours.

 

May we all keep these children and their families and the seniors in our prayers this Christmas. 

 

Thank you as always for your generous support to this program! God bless.

During this Covid19 Pandemic, The Saint Vincent de Paul Society continues to reach out to those in need in our parish community. Donations are needed on an ongoing basis to continue to help as many people as possible and are accepted in the following ways:
 
Cash/Cheque donations: there are now generic SSVP envelopes located in the narthex by the Greeter Table which are available on a regular basis. The last weekend of each month is a special focus for these collections with the envelopes available near our banner and an offertory basket (this replaces our volunteer collectors during this time of the pandemic). 
 
On-line donations via Canada Helps: donations made through this new link will be send directly to our parish SSVP account and can be made using a credit card or PayPal. 
 
If you are donating for the Angel Tree program, you can designate your donation to “Angel Tree (Christmas)” in the box titled “Apply your donation to a fund set up by this charity”.
