SILENT AUCTION:
The Catholic Women's League held a very successful virtual Silent Auction on November 15th. Thanks to everyone who donated items, bid on items and delivered items to the winners. We couldn't have done it without you!


CWL OUTREACH:
Blessed Sacrament Catholic Women’s League outreach over the next year is directed to individuals in need. In addition to our ongoing support of the Kingston Street Mission and St. Vincent de Paul Society, we are reaching out to families and individuals in need right here in Amherstview. We are providing support to organizations that will distribute meals and groceries to members of our community and our neighbours.

We have medium-sized personal hygiene packages assembled for the Street Mission and St. Vincent de Paul Society to distribute. The packages are suitable for men and women. As the weather changes, so too will the needs of our community members - and so will the contents of our care packages. If you know of someone in need, let us know. If you or your family wish to contribute to a care package, enclose a cheque made out to the “Blessed Sacrament CWL” or cash in a white envelope labeled “CWL Outreach”. For more information or to share ideas for care packages call Danna at: 613-634-9621. We will keep the parish updated on our activities. Thank you for your support.
