A Message from the Heart of Mercy Ministry

Thank you and Merry Christmas from the Heart of Mercy Ministry (HOM) here at St. Mary’s. Your generosity is so appreciated and enables St. Mary’s to help out those in need. HOM helps our parishioners who are struggling throughout the year. There is also help for those within our parish boundaries including our generous donation to the Parkdale Food Bank in the parish boundaries.
We would like to thank The DuQuesnay family for organizing the Christmas Shoeboxes, Natalie Winn for organizing and distributing our Christmas outreach and to Lee McCarthy for her ongoing help. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
