Starlight Shine-On Campaign Continues!
Former Chair of the Star of the North Board, Sr. Jeannette Filthaut, SP, and Current Chair, Phil Schmidt
"We want you to know, brothers and sisters, about the grace of God that has been granted... their abundant joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. 3 For, as I can testify, they voluntarily gave according to their means, and even beyond their means..." 2 Cor. 8: 1-3
Thank you patrons and donors for your incredible generosity leading up to and following our Starlight event held November 30, 2019 at St. Albert Parish hall! So far, we have raised approximately $64,000 in donations and pledges, and another $8,000 in revenue, after expenses, at the Starlight event itself. We are humbly grateful for this wonderful and encouraging start to our campaign!
We enjoyed a grace-filled evening with Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI inspiring us to choose to live a communion of forgiveness, grace and reconciliation over division and bitterness for our times. We celebrated together the Star’s future dreams to renovate and remodel the chapel, roof and more so that we might give our sacred space the best it can offer through hospitality for ongoing programs of spiritual renewal and hosted groups. We affirmed our commitment to a long-term vision for the Star of the North at the service of the wider community of faith in Western Canada and beyond.

Help us continue to grow the dream! Every donation large or small, one-time, pledged or recurring, is greatly appreciated.
