Neighbours Helping Neighbours - Training in November

Club 55+ Logo

Club 55+ is organizing a new initiative in the parish - Neighbours Helping Neighbours, a seniors' ministry. The program begins with a series of training sessions. The series gives participants an opportunity to grow skills they may be practicing now or believe will soon be needed in the near future with aging family, friends and neighbours!

The training sessions run on four consecutive Monday morning in the Parish Hall: November 9, 16, 23 and 30, from 9:00 a.m. until noon.

Club 55+ Working toward Purchase of a Defibrillator

Give from the heart—save a life! is the motto for the Club 55+ campaign to raise money for the purchase of a defibrillator.

The club is asking for donations of re-gifting items, such as china, silver, jewellery, or small household items. These items will be sold and raffled off to help buy an automatic external defibrillator for the parish.

Donations can be dropped off in the parish hall before or after all weekend Masses on November 15/16, and at the Live, Learn, Laugh and Lunch get-together on Thursday, November 20.
