Become an Altar Server

Have you received your First Holy Communion and wish to be an altar server? Call the Parish Office (613-389-2009) or email us at BlessedSacrament@archkingston.ca. Adults who have been altar servers in the past are always welcome to assist at special Masses. Altar servers are needed at both Blessed Sacrament and St. Linus churches.


Save Your Used Postage Stamps for Children

The Redemptorists collect stamps. Please put your used postage stamps (leave a ½ inch white space on all sides of the stamp) in the red and white box at the Religious Articles counter. It is amazing, but only ONE cancelled stamp can provide food for one day for a Third World child.
