ALL SAINTS ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PAGEANT
HOW TO BE PART OF THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT
Winter has arrived!
Rehearsals will take place for about 40 minutes after church on December 4 and 11. We hope all students will be able to attend at least 1 rehearsal. Students in grades 5 and up who are interested in taking a lead role in the pageant should bring back the form at the bottom of information sheet next Sunday (or submit the information by email).
Please note that there will be a reception for the entire parish on December 11, in honour of the launch of the long-awaited historical album. Parents: you can take part in the reception upstairs while your children take part in the rehearsal downstairs!
OUR FOOD DRIVE BEGINS THIS SUNDAY
Over the next 4 Sundays (December 4–25), All Saints will be collecting food in support of the primary food bank for nothern Toronto, North York Harvest.
Statistics from the food bank show that
• 1 in 3 food bank users are children;
• 40% have a serious long-term disability or illness;
• 13,000 men, women, and children access a food bank every month.
You'll find donation boxes and more information in the narthex of the church and a weekly reminder in your email.
Protein (canned beans, fish, etc.), canned tomatoes, rice, and baby products are in particular demand.
