Families & Schools Together: Volunteer Opportunity at St Peter School
The Families & Schools Together (F&ST) program of Catholic Family Service is a world-renowned family-based prevention program that supports each member of the family to learn new skills and be the best they can be – at home, at school and in the community. We are looking for caring, encouraging, non-judgmental, and responsible volunteers to support the families involved with F&ST!
Volunteers may include individuals, families, and groups. Volunteers in the F&ST program work well individually and in groups, are positive role models, and are comfortable interacting with children, youth, and families. Volunteers provide support to the F&ST team and families by setting up and cleaning up the program space, preparing food, serving meals, playing with children of all ages, and providing other program support as needed.

Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta (Habitat) brings the community together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership.
One of the key challenges for clergy and faith communities is finding new and impactful ways to bring the Divine Presence into the world through acts of loving-kindness and compassion.
So many needs and crises compete for our attention and resources daily that we can easily become overwhelmed. However, providing a safe and affordable home can literally change a person or a family’s world.
The Interfaith Build Project in support of Habitat for Humanity is a unique opportunity for all faith communities to come together to put their faith into action and help build stability and independence for Calgary families in need of affordable housing.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary has made a generous pledge of $300,000 over two years (2017 and 2018). The first pledge of $150,000 came in 2017 and the second pledge will come through fundraising efforts.
There will be many opportunities over the next two years to engage in spreading awareness about the issue of housing instability, raising funds for the Interfaith Build Project and volunteering at our build sites.

The Holy Trinity CWL council #12 is excited to take on the challenge of a fundraiser for the 2019 national convention which will be held here in Calgary.
We have come up with an item that was very well received by our members. We are sure that they will be so popular, we are hoping that National CWL will want to add them to their regular line of CWL products.
They are $10 each. To order, contact Janet Miles.
