Supporting Our Educators

Update on Supporting our Educators Project

Great news for 2 teachers in our parish - our Outreach committee purchased 2 projectors through the “Equipping the Saints” fund - these projectors will allow them to share great learning resources in the classrooms with their students.
Below is a “wish list” of items needed - take a look around to see if you can provide any of these items! There will be a basket in the foyer of the parish hall for any donations. If you are a teacher (or know a teacher in need) don’t hesitate to submit your “wish list” - send it to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Please bring in your contributions no later than Oct. 31st so we can distribute items to our “Modern Day Saints” on Nov. 1st - All Saints’ Day!

Help Us Help Our Parish Member Educators

Our parish is very committed to improving education in our community and beyond.  But we also have church members who are working in public education - facing a difficult and challenging year - with cutbacks, lack of resources and struggling students. How can we support our own church members as they start a new school year?  Let’s try to match needs with resources!
