At this time of pandemic, it is difficult to sell the tickets in person, for this reason we are taking your requests for purchase of a ticket by email at rosanne.nolet@gmail.com. Proof of purchase will be sent either by email or by mail. For payment, e-transfers are accepted at rosanne.nolet@gmail.com . Note that 100% of the proceeds will go towards repairing the roof of the church.
