Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ Mass will be held on Sunday October 15, 2017 in the C2 in Bonnyville, Alberta at 10:30 am. There will not be Mass on Saturday evening.
Children’s’ Collection: “Children helping Children” Children are invited to bring a donation to contribute at the Mass. At the end of the five Regional Masses, this collection will be forwarded to Holy Childhood Association (HCA). The HCA was founded in France in 1843 by Bishop Charles de Forbin Jansen. Its purpose is to encourage all children to be aware of the needs of children living in mission dioceses throughout the world. Today this missionary work is in 110 countries and helps make Jesus known to children all over the world. Children are asked to pray one Hail Mary every day and give a coin to help children in need.
Altar Servers from all parishes are invited to bring their own vestments and be in the procession. There will be reserved seating for the altar servers.
