Where our Tithe Works

In the same way as parishioners give a portion of their income to support the Church, the Church also supports the following organizations from a portion of its weekly income:

HOPE (Helping Other People Eternally)
Mission Nouvelle Generation (Food Bank)
Good Shepherd School Breakfast Programme

Please note that this does not limit us to only these three but the law governing churches and charitable organizations require that establishments that are supported regularly be registered


St. Margaret’s – St. Hubert

Next Sunday, September 23 at 4 p.m. St. Margaret’s will
be celebrating its 90th Anniversary. The church
family has extended an invitation to the family at St. Joseph’s
to join in this very special event.
If you would like to attend please let Christopher Belle know.


From the sermons of Charles Stanley

Our world is a changing, uncertain place. Many people seek security in wealth, relationships, and power. These things, however, are not guaranteed from one day to the next. Watching the news provides enough proof that any of them can be taken away in a moment. No wonder there is such despair and fear. For believers, thankfully, reality is not based on what we see. Nor is our foundation found in this world. We build our hope and trust on the Lord and we believe the truth in His Word.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
