NEW WEBSITE LAUNCHED
This weekend, we are launching our new parish website, it is SACRED HEART CATHEDRAL PRINCE GEORGE, abbreviated: 
 

Fr. Rector invites parishioners to consider this new parish website as the main source of information about our parish and the services it offers.  The newly redesigned cathedral website is more appealing, user friendly, and very informative.

Our gratitude to all who laboured behind the scene in bringing this project to a reality.  Bookmarked our site in your browser and visit it regularly for news and updates.

NEW PARISH BULLETIN COVER
Coinciding with our new parish website is the first publication of a newly redesigned Sunday bulletin cover.  Please see below: 
We thank our advertisers who continuously support us financially.  Overall, through their ad, the parish is able to publish a weekly bulletin.  Their contribution for the ad subsidizes the cost of regular printing of the bulletin. 
GARAGE SALE AT SACRED HEART 
Next week is the last week where the items for garage sale will be displayed in the lower church hall.  

House items such as beds, mirrors, dressers, including some kitchen items are available for garage sale.  There are also several wall frames and paintings.  All those items came from the house that the parish bought and is now a rental house.

If you are interested in any of the items above, please visit the lower church hall over this weekend after Mass and make your best offer.  
SUNDAY OFFERING COMMITMENT
For the last two Sunday, we have received good responses from many of you regarding your commitment to Sunday offering.  Over the next few weeks, we will process your desired option for giving to the parish.  We will e-mail you. Thank you for your diligent response and participation.

For those of you who have not yet completed the form, please consider doing so as soon as you can.  If you want to access the form that provides several option to make your Sunday offering easy, please click here: Sunday Offering Commitment.
