In the evening of May 16, 2018 in Zanon Hall the first meeting of the Nigerian community took place. Ten adults and another ten children participated in this, which promise to be the first of many meetings. The main goal was to know each other and to see how we can build the sense of COMMUNITY and WELCOME for this new community moving into our parish. In the St. Catherine of Siena School alone we can count up to 43 children of Nigerian Families. How con we maintain the great Nigerian Traditions in the heart of these children? They were invited to participate in the upcoming procession during the feast of St. Catherine, June 3 at 2:00pm. A new idea came up, that is, to help the children with a program of after school math and science. We already have one teacher who will offer her services. They hope to meet every month.For more information please contact IYKE OBAZEE at 647-574-4049 or call the parish office (905) 272-1454.
