FROM REV. RICHARD ZANOTTI – PROJECT ADVANCE
This week we have added an insert to the bulletin with an update for Project Advance. As you can see we have not reached our goal yet and of course there is no rebate. The percent of parishioners is very low. Please consider participating in the campaign. Thanks to all those that have already. Preprinted pledge forms & blank forms are available at the Parish office. You can also participate by going on line at projectadvance.ca or go to the parish website www.stannsabbotsford.ca and click on “giving” at the top of the first page. Or use this QR Code to make a donation.

“In migrants, the church has always contemplated the image of Christ who said. I was a stranger and you made me welcome, ( Mt. 25:35). Their condition is, therefore, a challenge to the faith and love of believers, who are called on to heal the evils caused by migration and discover the plan God pursues through it even when caused by obvious injustices”.
