DO YOU HAVE PHOTOS OR ARTIFACTS YOU CAN LEND?: The parish is preparing to host a tour of the main floor of the sanctuary and lunch for a group of delegates from the Nova Scotia Heritage Conference on June 15th.  This is an opportunity to display historical photographs and interesting artifacts related to our community.  Please consider sharing or lending something.  If you have any images or items, please contact Catherine Tucker (; 567-0146)

GARDEN WORK PARTY: On holiday Monday, May 21st, at 10 a.m. we will be doing some planning to beautify the grounds and possibly actually doing some gardening.  Can you assist?  Please come to the church if you can spare an hour or two.  If there is a plant that you might like to contribute, please consider bringing it.  Thank you!

CORPUS CHRISTI (BOZE CIALO): We will be hosting a special liturgy for Boze Cialo (Corpus Christi) on Sunday, June 10th, at 3 p.m.  Boze Cialo, although universal, has special importance in the Polish tradition.  Dessert and refreshments will follow.  Please invite your friends and relatives from other parishes to join us.  Traditional attire is normally worn for this celebration, if you have it.  Please note that this does not substitute for the 9:30 Mass on the same day.  Thank you, in advance, for attending both.
