HANDICRAFT HOLY LAND CHRISTIANS
On the weekend of August 26-27th, St. Catherine of Sienna and St. Finnan’s Basilica will welcome a special guest from Sebastien Cardinal’s team, representing ”Handicraft Holy Land Christians” who after the masses will briefly address the issues and concerns regarding the Christian presence in the Holy Land.
Christians in the Holy Land graciously ask your support through conscience prayers and will have many unique hand carved olive wood religious art pieces made by these families in Bethlehem available for purchase after every mass.
Proceeds of the sales generate much needed employment for our Christian brothers and sisters in Bethlehem.
Cash, debit, credit cards and cheque will be accepted. May God Bless you for your generosity, for your help and for your prayers.
You can visit www.HolylandChristians.ca for more information.
ALPHA, WHO WILL YOU INVITE?
The summer is a great time to connect with family and friends. It is also a great time to ask the Lord to put someone on your heart that you can invite to our Fall Alpha starting in September. The Good News is too important to keep to ourselves; who will you invite?
