December 8 – Advent II
Support the Society of St. Vincent dePaul
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is making its annual Christmas appeal to help the needy during the holiday season. There was a special Christmas envelope in last week’s bulletin, and envelopes at the back of the church. With your support, volunteers at St. Basil’s will help single people and families buy Christmas dinner. We will also help parents buy gifts for their children. We hope to brighten the day of Jesus’ birth for hundreds of adults and young people. Every donation, small or large, makes a difference. You can return the envelopes by placing them in the regular collections at Masses throughout December. You can also hand them in at the parish office, or drop them into the poor boxes. Tax receipts will be sent to those who provide names and addresses. Please make cheques payable to: Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. God bless you for your prayers and support.

We are now accepting bookings for our corporate retreat program, which runs on select Thursday mornings. The Program includes a presentation on systematic poverty in the city, as well as a service component to help our neighbours in need. The program can accommodate a group of 8-12 individuals, and runs from 9:00AM to 12:00PM. If you are interested in booking a date, please contact Michael Pirri at firstname.lastname@example.org or (416) 926-2075
