“Our resolve is to depend more on His grace, to live better lives, and to serve His church and our parishioners more effectively.” (Lenten Folder)
Perhaps you have some ideas to help generate funds for the church activities. The various programs, services and charities we donate to depend on our support. We can put your ideas and skills together with our collective resourcefulness and passion to generate actions to achieve our goals.
Past Fundraisers have seen us raise money for over 35 years with the annual Fall Church Supper involving the entire Parish contributing to and attending. In 2014 with the changing times and new food regulations and guidelines we had to think outside the box and come up with fresh fundraising ideas. Which we did!
In June 2014 we sold tickets on the Father’s Day Draw for a brand new BBQ, which St. Mary’s First Nation. being such a great supported of the Church, gave us permission to sell tickets at their Pow Wow; Fall of 2014, 2015, and 2016 – we held 3 very successful Monte Carlo / Silent Auction & Entertainment Night with local performers; 2014 – present, selling tickets on the Chalice Christmas Turkey Dinner Hamper; 2014 – present, Chalice Good Friday Seafood Chowder Luncheon; 2014 – 2015 selling of our St. Anthony’s T-Shirts; 2016 again SMFN and the Entertainment Centre allowed us on scheduled dates to set up a table and sell 50 / 50 Tickets during their Bingo; June 2016 sold tickets on a Cash Elimination Lottery Prize Draw to raise money for renovations for the Wheel Chair Accessible Washroom in the Quiet room; December 2017 Chalice fundraiser selling Christmas Tree Ornaments and the 2018 St. Anthony’s Parish Calendar; and on February 13th, 2018 the Chalice Committee held a well attended Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper with many volunteer hands from Parishioners and the Leo Hayes Safe Grads …..
The Parish Nursing Committee fundraises by selling tickets on the beautiful hand made Quilts donated by the Quilting Group ladies and again SMFN graciously allowing us to set up a table display to sell tickets on the quilt at the St. Mary’s Supermarket. January – February 2018 selling Tickets for the draw for the beautiful filled Sweethearts Valentines Basket.
Our Parish Secretary, Irene Jewett, her Country / Gospel Concerts & Silent Auction held at St. Anthony’s Church raises money for Liberty Lane to assist Women & Children who have left abusive relationships.
