“At this Christmas when Christ comes, will He find a warm heart? Mark the season of Advent by loving and serving the others with God’s own love and concern.”
-St Teresa of Calcutta
The Second Sunday of Advent, December 5th

Thank you for your Poinsettia Fundraising order which will be directed towards helping some of our families in need this Christmas season. As a result of your support, we raised over $300 dollars.
Please pick up your Poinsettia order after 12:00PM on Wednesday, December 8th in the foyer.
Star of Hope
Our Star of Hope Christmas outreach program has begun. This very important and long-standing tradition allows our community to help those who may be struggling and provide a brighter Christmas for families in our very own community. This outreach program has assisted as many as 60 families over the years and allowed us to donate to St. Vincent de Paul and charities throughout Halton. We look forward to working with you again this year as we touch the lives of those we are reaching while we fill our hearts with the true spirit of Christmas.
· Let’s decorate the tree! Send in your gift card(s) from now until December 8th and your child will be invited to place a star(s) on our Christmas tree in the foyer.
· Donate your gift cards for grocery, gas, retail (Winners, Walmart, clothing etc.), restaurant, beverage, movie and pharmacy by December 8th
· We encourage our community to support St. Teresa by purchasing your Star of Hope and Christmas gift cards via FUNDSCRIP using the St. Teresa of Calcutta code DY6CWF.
Our school has raised over $400 in the last year just by purchasing gift cards that you normally would purchase. Share the code with family, friends and even for corporate holiday gift-giving.
Please see the attachments for all the details.
If your place of work would like to donate or purchase employee gift cards, please send us an email at email@example.com and we can assist.
We THANK YOU for your generosity and support of this special tradition.
May God bless you and your family and keep you safe and healthy during this holiday season and throughout 2022.
