Be a part of our festivities! For many of us, thinking of spending Christmas away from our families and loved ones is unimaginable, yet for many of our neighbors and parishioners that will be a reality this Christmastime.

Assumption Parish and Assumption Campus Ministry would like to offer some fellowship, and community support during the holiday season for the many international students in our community. We will do that by hosting an International Students Holiday Dinner on Friday, December 27th at 5:30pm in the McEwan Campus-Parish Hall. This will be an opportunity to build relationships and celebrate the holiday season in a spirit of love and unity.  At this time we are looking for people to support this event with their help and presence.

If you would like to help with set up and décor, serving food, or cleaning up, please contact Jean Beneteau at jbeneteau@dol.ca or call the parish office. It is important that parishioners participate so that we might grow in friendship with those coming to us from other countries.

If you would like to attend this event because you are a  student staying in Windsor for the holidays then please keep your eye out for posters and flyers on the Campus ministry and/or the parish website and Facebook page. There will be a  required on-line registration for all people attending so that we know how many to expect and prepare accordingly. Even though a full dinner will be provided, if you would like to  contribute an ethnic dish or dessert you are most welcome to do so.  Please be sure to include an ingredients card with your dish so people can be mindful of allergies and dietary restrictions.

All international students living in our vicinity are welcome to attend.   Registration is here.
