The Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace – Caritas Canada (CCODP) has confirmed the following regarding donations intended to assist the people of the Bahamas after the extensive damage this past late August by Hurricane Dorian, followed two weeks later by Tropical Storm Humberto.   Dioceses/eparchies and parishes, as well as individuals, can forward donations through CCODP which in turn will convey these to other Caritas organizations working in the Bahamas. These donations should be earmarked “Bahamas”.  

Starting in January 2020, Canadian Martyrs Church needs volunteers for Sunday Fellowship after the 9:00AM Mass.  We also need someone to take over the flowers
and decorations in the Invermere Church.
 Please contact Father Jojo if you are interested in either of these two important tasks.
