Participant booklets at a cost of $10 to defray costs will be available to pick up at the church-kindly call Katharine at 905 477 1991 to arrange a time.
To register, please go to griefshare.org, enter your postal code, click on ‘Find a holiday event’, click on the St. Philip’s-on-the-hill notice, and enter your information.
Come as you are. God bless you and your family.
In leu of collecting canned goods and harvest produce in person this year, we are moving online to collect monetary donations that will go toward the Yellow Brick House.
We have been supporting the Yellow Brick House through our Harvest Drive for many years now. The YBH is a shelter for abused women and children.
Domestic violence increased drastically during the Covid pandemic. Many women were forced into isolation with their abusers. Making a donation today would help immensely.
Donate by dropping off a cheque at the church or through our donation button the menu to the right.
