The Ukrainian mother and 10-year-old son and daughter, age 8, arrived September 16. We have secured temporary 2-bedroom accommodation and had it furnished and supplied with the basic necessities. The father is due to arrive in Charlottetown this week, barring any unforeseen delays.
Mother and children are very happy to be here and finally have a sense of peace and normalcy in their lives. Our refugee committee has been working hard to ensure their transition to PEI is as smooth as possible. We still need a 2/3-bedroom accommodation for the longer term. If anyone has any offers or suggestions, please contact Dan Doran at (902) 218-2502. The family is very grateful for the support they are receiving from St. Dunstan’s Basilica Parish. A further update will be forthcoming!
Thank you to all who helped get ready for and helped clean up after our Picnic last Sunday, and to all
who attended. Our special words of thanks to the Knights of Columbus for their financial sponsorship
and for all their work in planning and preparation, and on the day. Blessings to all.
Would you like to be a greeter / usher? We are in need of some additional people to help out. Contact
Joyce White 902-367- 5701 or Bonnie Hood 902-940-6706. Thanks for considering!

K of C Council 824 at St Dunstan’s Basilica invites men (all ages, faith backgrounds, atheists & agnostics) to participate in a weekly book club starting Tuesday Sept 27th. In small groups we will

OCIA (Order of Christian Initiation of Adults) enables adults who are not Catholic and interested in learning more about the Catholic faith to attend weekly sessions. It is a time of faith-sharing and exploration with Fr. Keith and members of the St. Dunstan’s Basilica Parish community. Sessions will begin in October. All interested, please contact Fr. Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandra email@example.com or the parish office.
If anyone might have a pyx (the small metal vessel for taking Holy Communion to the sick or shut-in) that you borrowed from the parish and are no longer using, would you kindly return it to the church or office. We would like to use them for others. Many thanks.
Weekday Masses are celebrated in the main church for the warm weather months. Confessions will
be heard downstairs. Because Mass follows quite closely after Confessions, please try to come earlier in the time period, rather than toward the end. Many thanks.
“Things That Are Above, Volume One. The History of St. Dunstan’s Cathedral Basilica” by
Fr. Blair Bernard. If you have a copy of this book that you are no longer using, please contact the parish office.
The lift in the church is available for use. One of the greeters will be happy to assist anyone who needs to use it. For those who had a key previously, it still works.
