Folks: We here at St. Anne's Parish in Mattawa need HELP!! With the mills closed down and there being almost no forest industry work left, our unemployment rate as SKYROCKETED!!! As a result, while we have not seen a decline in attendance (if anything it's up a bit) our collections have almost collapsed. The parish is on financial life support from the Diocese, but we need to do all that we can to try and raise some revenue or it will be necessary to lay-off the lay staff at the parish. Already they have accepted deep cuts in their hours of work, but even this is becoming unsustainable. If you are able, and are willing to make a donation to help us out, you could do so in two ways: 1. use the donate button in the left hand column, or 2. mail us your donation to: ST. ANNE'S PARISH, BOX 160, MATTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA P0H1V0 Tax receipts will be issued for all donations. THANK YOU!
