St. Vincent de Paul

ST. DUNSTAN’S ST. VINCENT DE PAUL would like to thank all parishioners who donate non perishable food items on the 1st Sunday of each month to help keep our pantry stocked for those in need of food. Since the ban on using plastic bags has come into effect, parishioners have used their own cloth bags when donating food. As of this week we have a yellow bin at the entrance of the church with cloth grocery bags that can be taken to replace any bags that you drop off with food in them. Thanks for your generosity.

Attention Parents

A suggestion has been made that children at Mass should be accompanied to the washroom downstairs by a parent rather than going on their own. In the interest of safety, this is a prudent practice to follow. If your child has such a need, please go with them.
