OES Recycling Program and Beer Run 2020

This is an update on the recently concluded OES Recycling Program and Beer Run 2020.

Given the pandemic conditions and the weather conditions, we still had a successful event.

I would sincerely like thank each one of you and your families for your support in donating used electronics and beer / wine bottles, proceeds of which will all go to the Parish. The amount collected from the Beer Run is $ 777/-

The amount generated from the electronics recycling will be announced once I have the details from OES.

I would also like to sincerely thank the Chair of the event, Brother Ernest Cordeiro who really did an awesome job co-ordinating the event (given the social distancing rules). A big thank you to Brother Ernie's team, some of whom made several to and fro trips to the Beer Store. The Team included :-

Alex Fernandes, Cruz Fernandes, Hilary D'Souza, Jestin Nazren, Joe Remedios, Priyal Jayasinghe, Leonard Athaide, Savio Pereira, Steve Parado, Valerian Ferreira (Brother Knight from St Peter and Paul Council), Venant Ferreira, Wilfred Corda.

The day was made better by the thoughtfulness of the families of our Brother Knights who provided snacks and juices for the team members.

May the Holy Family, Jesus Mary Joseph bless and protect each one of you and your families. Please stay safe and happy.

GRAND KNIGHT Kelvin Netto

No words will do justice to the gratitude I wish to convey to you, your families and friends for the overwhelming response to the Food Drive held last weekend.

We had an overwhelming response not only from the members of our Council but also members of the various Parish ministries.

Thank you to our Pastor and Associate Pastors for their support and encouragement.
