A Celebration for Fr. Emile April

YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN ST. PHILIP NERI IN CELEBRATING FR. EMILE APRIL

On Sunday, June 25, St. Philip Neri Parish (1902 Munroe Ave.) will host a very special celebration for our pastor Fr. Emile April. Fr. Emile celebrates 50 years of ordination on June 3rd , he celebrates his 75th birthday on July 21 and at the end of July he will officially retire from active ministry. Our celebration will begin at 2:30 pm with a special mass. Immediately following the liturgy we will hold a short program in the church with some entertainment and presentations. Following the program all are invited to a family bar-b-que. We hope you can attend.

To honor Fr. Emile and his many years of service in our diocese and 27 years in the missions in Brazil, St. Philip Neri is establishing the Fr. Emile April Bursary Fund.  This bursary will be open to any member of a St. Philip sponsored or co-sponsored refugee family for the purpose of furthering their education. This is an initiative that is dear to Fr. Emile.

If you wish to contribute to this fund, please make your cheque payable to St. Philip Neri Parish, clearly indicating on the cheque or envelope that it is for the Refugee Bursary program. All donations are eligible for a tax receipt. Donations will be accepted up to and including June 30/17.

We hope to see you at St. Philip’s on June 25 to celebrate Fr. Emile who has served our church for 50 years.
