OUR LADY OF SORROWS PARISH GALA
Friday, September 15, 2023, is the Feast of our Patroness, Our Lady of Sorrows. As our Parish is undertaking a Capital Campaign (introduced at the April 16th Mass), to update our facilities to present codes and seismic standards, we are asking our families to help in the fundraising goals.
- The Parish is also selling tickets to the Our Lady of Sorrows Gala on Saturday, September 16th. If your family or a class of parents wish to purchase tickets to this great community event, tickets are $75. Organize a table of 10 by June 23rd and receive a free bottle of red or white wine. Tickets are available to purchase from the Parish office.
Thank you for supporting our OLS Capital Campaign. More information about our plans will be shared again soon.
Due to the warmer weather, the children will now be spending more time outside. Therefore, the gate to the school parking lot will not be opened until 2:30 p.m. Please do not arrive earlier than 2:30 p.m. to pick-up your child(ren) and wait at the gate as this creates a backlog of traffic and a nuisance for the neighbourhood.
