St. Cecilia’s Volunteer Screening Committee
“Strengthening the Caring Community” is the name of the Archdiocesan screening program and every parish in the Archdiocese of Toronto is legally required to implement a formal screening program for volunteers. The Archdiocese has designed the model we shall use to create, maintain, and promote a safe environment to protect the vulnerable in out parish community, to support our volunteers, and to prevent any form of abuse. A committee member will speak at each of next weekend’s Masses (November 23 and 24). Our parish coordinator, Renee Achong, and members of the screening committee will be available to meet parishioners after each Mass. We are grateful for the many parishioners who volunteer and who are generous with their time and expertise. As we implement volunteer screening in the parish, updates will be shared with the parish publicly and through the bulletin. Information: http://www.archtoronto.org/screeningcommittee .
Remembering our Loved Ones during the Month of November
A basket will be available at the base of the altar for your “All Souls’ Envelopes”. On the envelope provided with this bulletin, write the names of deceased family members and friends and enclose your offering. Place envelopes in the basket. The office staff will enter those listed on the envelopes into the “Book of Souls”. The “Book of Souls” and the basket will remain at the altar for the entire month of November and those names therein will be prayed for at all Masses during the month of November.
