Knight of Columbus, St. Anne Council, on behalf of St, Jean Baptiste Parish, the Midstream Support Society and the Morinville Food Bank, are pleased to announce that they will be coordinating the Christmas Hamper Project for Morinville and District once again this year. Last year over 100 packages containing food cards and numerous children’s toys and gifts were distributed to needy families in the community. The success of this project relies on the generosity and co-operation of the churches, service groups, businesses, and countless individuals in our communities. This year we will be returning to the traditional hampers providing there are no COVID 19 restrictions.


Your support is welcomed through donations of food and children’s toys and gifts to the following drop off sites: Bumper to Bumper, Town of Morinville FCSS (cultural centre), Scotia Bank, Royal Bank, and Servus Credit Union. Residents are reminded to donate foods that are nutritious and children’s gifts that are new or in excellent condition (unwrapped please). Financial contributions may be directed to the office at St. Jean Baptiste Parish or Bumper to Bumper. Cheques are to be made to St. Jean Baptiste Parish (Income tax receipts will be issued), and the monies will be used to purchase fresh food and other staples. Any surplus funds are distributed to all local schools for their lunch programs.


Individuals and families who are eligible to receive Christmas Hampers are contacted by Social Services. Anyone who requires assistance should phone 780-939-9353 (Midstream Store) or 780-939-4361 (Town of Morinville). Residents of Morinville who are aware of individuals or families in need of assistance should not hesitate to phone on their behalf. Those eligible to receive hampers should phone one of the numbers listed above no later than Friday December 17th.

 

The distribution of hampers is planned for Wednesday December 22, 2021 at the Rendez-Vous Centre between 4pm and 7 pm.

Letter from Bishop Paul Terrio - April 21, 2020

 


We invite you individually or as a family to say the rosary with the help of the internet. "Come Pray the Rosary" is a perpetual rosary that allows people to say the rosary together on the internet. You can join with others and say the rosary in progress, or start it individually by choosing the mystery you want to say. Through this website, you can follow along as the Rosary is recited, with the visual aid of video from the Holy Land. You can literally see the places where the mysteries take place! You also can keep track of how many other people, around the world, are joining you in prayer. By clicking on the number of people praying and then the map, you can actually see the location of those you are praying with on a map. Please check out this great website at http://www.comepraytherosary.org/.
