Parish Picnic 2019

 

Our prayers for beautiful weather for the picnic were answered! We enjoyed each other’s company, met new friends and ate lots of good hamburgers, hotdogs, salads, chips, desserts and popcorn.
We give thanks to all the groups and individuals who prepared, served,
and cleaned up:

Parishioners who gave out tickets so we would know how many burgers and dogs to get.
Knights of Columbus O’Leary Council for providing the BBQ.

Trevor Waddell from Re/Max for bringing and setting up the pop-up tents and providing some plates, cups and napk

ins. Those tents really make a difference in providing shade for people, desserts and beverages.

Holba family for donation of the popcorn maker – look for it at future Parish events!

Couples for Christ for picking up the hotdogs, buns, cooking everything and cheerfully serving. They also took care of popcorn making and many other jobs that needed to be done.

Catholic Women’s League for picking up and preparing salads.

Society of Saint Vincent de Paul for making beverages and keeping us hydrated.

There were many other behind the scenes volunteers who stepped in and did what needed to be done –thank you. See you next year at next year’s Parish Picnic on June 21, 2020!

Home Support for Edmonton Seniors

The Greater Edmonton Alliance, which is endorsed and supported by the Archdiocese, has played an instrumental role in the creation of the Seniors Home Supports Program. The program meets the real needs of seniors in their homes today: the soft supports such as yard help, snow removal, housekeeping, and home repair and maintenance, among other services. This program is available to all seniors. It might not be for you, but it could very well be for someone you know: a family member, a friend, a neighbour. We invite you to share the following program resources with your parish or community. If you have questions, please contact Ken Bracke at 780-450-3138. For more information, you can also visit www.seniorshomesupports.com.

Helping Seniors Stay in the Community

Do you need help around the home, but don’t know who to call? The Seniors Home Supports Program gives Edmonton seniors referrals to service providers offering snow removal, yard help, housekeeping, minor home repair and maintenance, personal services, and moving help. Six seniors organizations screen businesses, community groups, and individuals and provide referrals. Referrals are free, but seniors pay for the work that is done. Visit www.SeniorsHomeSupports.com or call 211 to find out which organization serves your area of the city.


The Archdiocese of Edmonton now has a news portal, GrandinMedia.ca.
  

Grandin Media informs and engages through the telling of inspiring stories of Catholic life in today’s world, particularly in central and northern Alberta.

Grandin Media takes its name from Vital-Justin Grandin, an Oblate missionary who became the first Bishop of the Diocese of St. Albert in 1859. At the time, the diocese covered large parts of present-day Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. Grandin was tireless in his efforts to share the good news of the Gospel; it is estimated that over the course of his ministry in Western Canada, he walked about 25,000 miles in snowshoes.

Today his name graces streets, buildings, schools and communities across western Canada, and his snowshoes are featured on the coat of arms of the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton. His cause for sainthood is currently under consideration by the Vatican. Like its namesake, Grandin Media aims to reach far and wide, now snowshoes (and printed newspapers) have been replaced by the digital tools of the internet that you are viewing right now.
