Hi all,

Here’s a two-for-one! You can care for God’s creation and help our faith-filled parish staff transport their monthly recycling to one of two free recycling bins in Hamilton. A sign-up sheet is in the back of church. Also you will find directions to the two recycling bins available to anyone in the community. This is a great service project for students preparing for Confirmation or attending high school. It’s also a great example for the community and you help the parish and the earth out all at once. Imagine the shine on your halo!

Blessing of Candles will take place for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2 at all Masses. All are invited to bring new candles that you will use for private prayer and meals to be blessed. We will have tables set up in the gathering space in the back of church.

PRAYER PARTNERS for 1st Communicants– Please take a name or two of the First Communicants. Keep them in your daily prayers and write a note of encouragement and put in the box at church by March 7. Thank you for supporting our young families pass on the Catholic Faith!

Confirmation Retreat Permission Forms are due on February 9 to your child’s religion teacher. The Retreat is on Feb. 22 from 10 am to 5 pm at the Fenmont and at Church. Forms can be found online at www.stjulie.net
