for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, this weekend of November 28/29
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul wil be collecting gently used clothing, shoes, linens and household goods.
Items not accepted: appliances, baby or regular furniture, books, mattresses, dishes, constructon material or video tapes.
The truck will be open all weekend.
All church services are restricted to 10 persons including those who are involved in ministry. Due to these measures, the Archbishop temporarily cancels public Masses. However, priests celebrate private Mass daily for the intentions of parishioners. Those who have intentions to offer in Mass are always welcome, please call.
While I recognize it is not a substitute for attending mass in person, I encourage you to view online/livestream/televised masses. A full list is available at archtoronto.org.
Livestreaming from St. Norbert's is available at stnorbertschurch.org/streaming.

Pre-authorized giving plan:
The archdiocese of Toronto has established a pre-authorized giving plan to assist you in your support of the work of St. Norbert's parish through your regular parish offerings (this does not include special collections). This is how you make your gift through the pre-authorized giving plan:
• Decide the amount of your gift to St. Norbert's parish to be withdrawn from your account each month.
• Enclose a cheque from your account marked "void". • Mail to the parish office with your Name, Address, Telephone, Email and Amount.
More information about the pre-authorized giving plan is available here.
More information on online offering is available here.
Appreciation: St. Norbert, Pray for us.

We are blessed to have very generous parishioners here at St. Norbert's Parish, and we'd like to thank you for your support, especially during this unprecedented time. While we were shut down many parishioners wanted to continue making donations to the parish but struggled to figure out how to get their donation to us when they were not leaving their homes. Although we are now offering public Mass again, many people are still not able to join us in person.
One option to make donating easier, save paper by using less envelopes, and make processing easier for our volunteers and staff, is to sign up for Pre-Authorized Giving. You can sign up to have weekly or monthly donations automatically withdrawn from your bank account and given to St. Norbert Parish. You set the amount you want to give, and you can change it whenever you need to. The program is easy to sign up for and can be set up without you having to leave your house. If you want to learn more about Pre-Authorized Giving please contact the parish office.
