From Your Pastor:

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

So many of you have called, some not getting through because of the lines being busy - so many e-mails as well - I haven't been able to keep up with them. Please forgive my delay in responding - I intend to begin doing so again in the morning. But the overwhelming sentiment I am getting is one of grief and this is of concern to me - please don't cry, because if you do, so will I…. Our beautiful church building is gone - all that is left is the memory of almost 19 years of worship, celebration and community. This will have to do until we rebuild.

Tell your children, the church will be rebuilt - They will light candles and kiss icons in it again - and they will go around it again in procession and run around it again with water balloons and super soakers. Tell them, when they get married, there will be a new building for them. To put things in perspective, my middle sister, Orysia, called me this evening. She told me that our youngest, Irene, called our oldest, Olga, saying hysterically: "Have you heard about Roman?" "He died?" "No - his church burned down!" "Thank God!" Let us indeed thank God - we still have each other - walls can be and will be rebuilt, but loved ones are irreplaceable! Let's all stay well - there is much for us to look forward to! Counting my blessings,

A terrible fire destroyed the St. Elias the Apostle Ukrainian Catholic Church.

To Father Roman and the Congregation:

Norval Churches - Norval Presbyterian, St. Paul's Anglican and Norval United - and the Norval Community Association will help in any way we possibly could.

MEDIA RELEASE

 

Norval – Last summer, the Norval Community Association received a two-year, $169,500 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to design and build a sensory garden for Norval Park. The Children’s Sensory Garden will make a wonderful addition to the community, and is being designed for people of all ages and abilities as a place to experience the environment through touch, look, smell, taste and hearing.

“I want to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for approving this grant for the Norval Community Association,” Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott said.  “By remembering Lucy Maud Montgomery at Norval Park, we are inspired by a significant figure in Canada’s literary history, and her involvement in our community.”

Funds will be used over the next two years to buy plants and materials for the sensory garden, to help with the salary for an Education Coordinator and help with marketing costs as well.

Sensory gardens are appearing in more communities and are treats to behold because they are designed to appeal to the five senses listed above. The gardens are designed to be therapeutic, inclusive and diverse for people with special needs. Set within the Lucy Maud Montgomery Garden in Norval, just north of Mississauga, the garden has the potential to be a must-see space for local residents and visitors alike and can also act as an educational tool.

“The vision of the Children's Garden of the Senses is to create a garden that brings together our heritage, healing, and connection to an inclusive community both locally, nationally and internationally,” said Kathy Gastle, President, Norval Community Association.

A leading grantmaker in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities: www.otf.ca
