The contest is open to 3 age groups: 5-7, 8-10, 11-14.
There will be cash prizes in each age category.
The K of C will distribute packages during Sunday morning Catechetics.
Please contact Don Chevarie (902) 566-4337 for info.
The Knights of Columbus will hold their regular monthly council meeting Thursday, December 9 at 7 pm
in the council chambers.
Confirmation Candidates recently collaborated with the Knights of Columbus for the “Fill the Box Challenge.”
As a result of the generosity of the families of St. Dunstan’s Basilica Parish, we have filled the large box six times over! This was a very successful clothing drive that will provide warm clothing and coats to the Sisters of St. Martha who directly assist those who are struggling in the Charlottetown area.
During these weeks of Advent and leading up to Christmas, clothing will be delivered by our Catechetics program and the Knights of Columbus to Sister Aldona. Thanks to all!
In preparation for the new technology needed for the lift, a small equipment room will be constructed.
This work is scheduled to begin this week. As a result, there will be no Masses on Monday or Tuesday of this week.
Also note that this week’s Thursday Mass is at 9 am, not at noon.
Christmas Eve : 4 pm, 6 pm, 8 pm, and midnight.
On-Line Registration will be available beginning this Thursday, December 10.
If you are registered for Mass, your envelopes are available with the greeters as you enter or leave the church.
For those who have not been using envelopes and would like to begin to do so, extra sets are available from the greeters.
When you begin to use them in the new year, be sure to put your name and address on them the first few times, so we have a record for receipt purposes.
You may also contact the Parish Office to pick up your envelopes. Many thanks to all!!
Please do not use 2022 envelopes in 2021
