Mark Your Calendar!!  Parish Winter Banquet
Following our 25th Anniversary Dinner and Dance, many of you enjoyed it so much that you have been asking for another event. So, we have decided to host a Winter Banquet.  It will be a dinner and dance at Le Dome Banquet Centre on Saturday, January 31st.  Tickets will be sold in the fall, but you may want to book it in your calendar now.
 
The Serra Club of Halton needs YOU!  We are seeking people to come together monthly at Saint Dominic Parish in Oakville to promote and support  vocations to religious life.  We share Mass, a meal, have interesting speakers, and plan ways, as a group, to encourage young men and women to listen to God’s call.  While this helps others, it is also a wonderful opportunity to deepen our own walk with the Lord and strengthen our faith community.  SERRAN’s find ways to do this work in our everyday world of office, home, factory and family. Please join us for a meeting to learn more. Please contact Garth Brown (VP Membership) at 416 459 2730 or garthbrown@sympatico.ca.

Prayer and Life Workshops
A Prayer and Life Workshop (PLW) is a series of sessions where a participant learns to pray with different methods of deep prayer, step- by -step.  At the same time, participants learn to transform their lives with the help  of the Word.  There are 15 workshop sessions, of about 2 hours each ending with a one-day retreat after the 15th session.

When? Our Workshop at Saint Matthew Parish is being held on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. beginning September 4th and ending December 11th.
