The Shepherds' Trust

As members of our Catholic community, we regularly benefit from the tireless service of our priests. They have been instruments in living out a "faith in action." Called by God and ordained to care for His people, our priests serve our families, in churches, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, missions and on the streets. The Shepherds’ Trust supports our priests to help them live their retirement years with dignity.

The Shepherds' Trust collection this year will take place in all parishes in the Archdiocese during the weekend of November 16-17. Envelopes will be distributed the weekend of November 9/10. As well, please consider remembering The Shepherds' Trust in your will.

This trust fund is a tangible way to care for those who cared for us and to give thanks for the blessings we have received through them. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.


All are welcome

If you are a new parishioner or someone who has been attending St. Norbert's Parish but has never registered we ask that you please register. Forms are located at the main entrances of the church and in the church office.

Once completed you may simply drop the registration form in the collection basket, give to an usher or bring to the church office.
