PARISH BBQ – Mark Your Calendars!
Sunday, July 14th, 2024, following the 11:00 a.m. Liturgy 
Join us for our Parish BBQ, this Sunday, July 14th, following the 11:00 a.m. Liturgy, at the north entrance.  The lunch is sponsored by our Knights of Columbus, however, freewill offerings will be graciously accepted (cash only please).  Come and enjoy some food and fellowship!

Feel free to bring your lawn chair or a picnic blanket as tables and seats are limited.  In the event of rain, we may move indoors and gather in the narthex.

We hope to see you there!


CHALICEAnother Opportunity this Sunday!
Last Sunday was Sponsorship Weekend at St. Gianna’s presented by Chalice, a Catholic Child Sponsorship organization.  A good start was made as five children were sponsored and $200 was collected towards the well-being of children.  The cash donation will be used towards the purchase of school lunches, children’s books, milk, bottles and formula, and covering the cost of visits to a doctor and mom and baby check ups.

Realizing that some time may be required to consider this sponsorship commitment, our Chalice team will have a display table again this Sunday, to be present to accept additional sponsors.  If planning to use a direct debit platform for monthly payments, please remember to bring a voided cheque.

Thank you to all those who have already chosen the gift of child sponsorship!

Parishioners, 16 years old or older, who are interested in receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation should contact our Family Faith Formation Coordinator, Rachel at [email protected], as Sacramental preparation sessions are being planned for the fall.
