Make a kit for the women of Auberge Madeleine with toiletries; shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, personal hygiene products, new underwear, new socks, stockings even a small umbrella for the spring weather or whatever you think a woman in distress would need. You may bring in your kit bags anytime before Easter and leave them by the baptismal font. More information about the shelter and its services for women may be found at: http://www.aubergemadeleine.org/ Auberge Madeleine is very grateful for the toiletries as it is expensive for them to provide the women in need with the essentials.
Send a card with your expression of support to a member of the parish who you know has been dealing with illness or other or other challenges. A note of love can make a world of difference.
ANNOUNCEMENT: On Sunday, January 14, the congregations of the Parish of St Andrew and St Mark, Dorval, and the Church of the Resurrection, Valois, voted overwhelmingly in favour of merging the two parishes, with effect from April 1, 2018, at the Dorval location. To quote Bishop Mary Irwin-Gibson: "today's decision offers an amazing opportunity to both congregations. Each congregation has important gifts and strengths. Each congregation has significant challenges as well. By voting today to merge the two together, you have the chance to become a strong parish, to grow your mission into the future and to turn your challenges into opportunities." Until a permanent name is chosen at a later date, the blended community will be known as the Parish of the Resurrection, St Andrew and St Mark.
JOB OPPORTUNITY: Incumbent, St Andrew & St Mark, Dorval
The Bishop of Montreal invites applications for the position of Incumbent of the parish of St. Andrew & St. Mark, Dorval. This is a full time position.
The Church of St. Andrew & St. Mark is a vibrant parish in the city of Dorval, about a twenty-five minute drive West of Downtown Montreal. A congregation that was formed with the merger of St. Mark’s (1898) and St. Andrew (1959) in 1969, it is a welcoming and inclusive community centred in Christ and strives to share God’s love and compassion in their neighbourhood and beyond. The parish is searching for a priest who contributes their own spiritual gifts, passions and imagination while bringing out the gifts of the parish, recognizing abilities in the congregation and providing solid leadership.
The bishop is looking to appoint a priest to serve the parish as it continues to grow in their sense of mission and purpose, a priest who will be an enabler to assist and encourage all members in their ministry, a priest who will share God’s welcome and be inclusive to all, a priest who is prayerful and Spirit led.
