World Mission Sunday – thank you! Last week the church celebrated its annual World Mission Sunday. We wish to thank everyone who prayed for, and were able to support the work of the missions last week. Your prayers and donations will make a huge contribution to the growth of the church and to the well-being of the poor of the world. Please continue to pray for all those who serve in mission countries bringing Christ’s message of love to the world’s most vulnerable. Also, your generosity and support of the missions throughout the year would also be very much appreciated. With deep gratitude, we thank you again for your prayerful and financial support of World Mission Sunday 2020.




Report of Holy Family Parish Activities
Accompanying this bulletin is a report outlining the many activities, projects and events at Holy Family Parish from September 2019 to August 2020. We have been richly blessed with many volunteers and prayer warriors. Thank you for your participation and enjoy the report!




Oct 11, 2020: Regular parish receipts $1,363 plus $500 for needy
Oct 13, 2019: Regular parish receipts $1,603



We want to acknowledge the important benefits Holy Family Parish has received from our participation in the Community Spirit Gaming Centre in Kingston. Since 2013 from 10 to 12 parish members have volunteered each year at Community Spirit, working a total of 39 to 41 bingos each year.
Over the years, bingo revenue has contributed to parish life in a number of important areas. Since January 2018 alone, bingo funds contributed over $22,000 to heat, light and water for the parish. Over $14,000 provided music for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and secretarial support for parish programs and services. Emergency lighting for the church, gift cards for people in need and maintenance volunteers, a new sump pump system for the rectory, training for sponsor couples involved in marriage preparation, and St. Joseph Missals and Living With Christ booklets are just some of the more recent uses of bingo funds.
We are thankful that the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association and the Community Spirit Gaming Centre have been able to continue to support us during the current pandemic. These funds assist in providing financial help to people in need who come to us and in helping to maintain a spiritual presence in Rideau Heights. Our thanks to our faithful volunteers and to the OCGA and Community Spirit!

CARLO ACUTIS, who died at age 15 in 2006, and is buried in Assisi, Italy, was just beatified on October 10. Carlo, who was very gifted with using the internet and desired to spread the Gospel through it, created this website, a compiled list of all the Eucharistic miracles around the world. He wanted to help build up people's faith by this means. You can read about each miracle by clicking on the city and date of the miracle.
