- Outstanding Generosity – Thank You! The faithful people of the Diocese of Charlottetown contributed $41,289.38 in the special collection for the plight of the starving in South Sudan and other African Countries. This amount was submitted to Development and Peace before the deadline so that the Government will double this amount, $41,289.38.
- Feast Day of St. Anne and St. Joachim Pilgrimage Walk: On Friday, July 28, St. Anne’s Parish will celebrate the Feast Day of our Blessed Virgin Mary’s parents and invites all pilgrims to celebrate Holy Mass at 10:30 following a pilgrimage walk to the church. The walk starts at Stella Maris Church, North Rustico and proceeds to St. Anne’s Church. There is a choice of a long or short walk as follows: the long walk is 9.5 km (2 hrs) departing Stella Maris church at 7:30 am; park at the Stella Maris church. The short walk is 2.0 km joining the long walk on the Toronto Rd. to arrive at the church as a group. For shorter walk, assemble in your vehicles at 8:45 am at Stella Maris Church to be led to park on the Toronto Rd. where you will join the long walk. Knights of Columbus will lead walks, provide maps, water, road crossing safety, return transportation to parked cars during the walk and following Mass. Rain will cancel walks only. For additional detail, call Vernon Buote at 902-963-2106 or 902-314-4065.
- The Priests Benevolent Fund now has a new website to improve communication between the Fund, our supporters, and the public at: www.priestsbenevolentfund.ca Since the Priests Benevolent Fund is a separate organization from the Diocese and its parishes, contacting us directly is the best and fastest way to get the answers to your questions about receipts, donations, and anything else related to the fund. You will find our contact information on the new site. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our generous donors for your contributions to the care of the retired priests of the Diocese of Charlottetown.
- For July and August the Catholic Centre will be closed on Fridays; office hours Monday to Thursday are 8:30 am – 12 noon and 1:00 – 4:00 pm.
