The Community Life Committee is Hosting a Multicultural Potluck!


Date: Saturday, February 11, 2017
Time: 6:00PM (After the 5PM mass)
Location: Parish Hall
Contact: Deborah Edwards (416) 806-7033

The Community Life Committee is inviting one and all to a Multicultural Potluck on Saturday, February 11th at 6:00PM (After the 5:00PM mass in the Parish Hall).  If you are coming to mass, you can drop your dish off in the hall before mass.  We hope whatever you are making will cost no more than $20.  This will be a true pot luck, we will not be organizing certain groups to bring certain things.

Are there foods from your culture that you would like to share with others?  Culture does not mean country as Newfoundlanders, Acadians and the Quebecois can tell you.  So, bring your food and share in the food of China, Vietnam, Philippines, Central and South America, European cultures and whatever other surprises that will come our way.

If you would like to share the musical culture of your people and your talent give Deborah Edwards a call.  We would welcome singing or dancing of your home country.  Also, if you have a karaoke machine we may discover all kinds of hidden talents within the parish.

So, mark the date and be part of this great parish event!
