Nota Bene: August 2022

by Aug 5, 2022News, Nota Bene


Jennifer Teresa Frei who will be baptized on August 21, 2022 at St. James Church, Maxville. Jennifer is the daughter of Simon & Sonja Frei.


Vacation Bible School 2022 has officially come to a close! This year’s VBS was one to remember with 46 children signed up to participate in the many games, crafts, and lessons centered around our Catholic faith. The theme of the year was Mary, with the kids learning all about who Mary is, her impact on the Catholic faith, and her “Yes” to God. Kids got to experience the many virtues that Mary exemplified through the camp’s interactive stations of faith, games, music, crafts, and even snacks! And to top off the fantastic week, Archbishop Marcel Damphousse celebrated a Holy Mass centered around the kids, the theme of Mary, and the many worship songs they learnt throughout the week. A big thank you goes out to all our volunteers, both our station leaders and teen volunteers. Without you all, this would not have been such a great week! We would also like to thank the Archbishop, Fr. Jonathan Blake, and Maison Shalom House for helping us bring the faith to so many youth! Come Holy Spirit!


St. Finnan’s & Shalom House are in search of a Bookkeeper.  If interested, please contact Fr. jon for further information.
