Holy Rosary Church Receives Tech

Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church is a parish in the Archdiocese of Winnipeg, located in the heart of Osborn Village in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The neighborhood is a vibrant community rich in culture. Holy Rosary provides a spiritual presence in this community. Their parishioners who worship in their parish come from within the neighborhood as well from many surrounding neighborhoods and their Sunday Mass is filled with various groups of ethnic cultures that all share the same faith and love of the Lord Jesus Christ. They enjoy the foundation of the Italian culture and are blessed to add the spice of other ethnic groups.

  1. They guide through Prayer, Liturgy, and Worship.
  2. Their fellowship reaches community with Charity and Welcoming hearts.
  3. They form Disciples that will continue to share the word of GOD with the community.

Holy Rosary Church runs a catechism program, where families are welcome to bring their children and grow in their faith journey. They believe that faith formation is a lifelong process and recognize that the parent is the most important role model to teach the faith to children. The program offers classes from Preschool/Kindergarten to Grade 7, where children receive their sacraments of initiation (communion in grade 2, and confirmation in grade 7). Their catechism program runs from September to May. Classes are every Sunday from 11:00- 12:00 with family mass to follow.

The Electronic Recycling Association was delighted to be able to provide the Holy Rosary Church with 9 laptops, 2 printers, and 2 projectors. Adding this equipment to their program will help in better delivery and provide more up to date teaching tools to provide faith formation for approximately 160 kids.

In light of the recent outbreak of the COVID – 19 in Canada, the Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is pleading to companies and individuals to help those non-profits who do not have the tech requirements to work remotely from home. This morning, ERA spoke to several organizations on the growing concern that they may need to close during COVID-19 as they do not have the technology to work from home. In addition, ERA is receiving requests from families who do not own a laptop or computer and depend solely on libraries, so that their kids can complete their homework. However, now that the libraries recently closed they are in need of donations now more than ever.

ERA is taking the initiative and offering free pickups in local areas for companies and individuals with unwanted laptops and computers. This will give organizations the option to work remotely which will ease their potential anxiety from working at their offices. It will also ensure that children are able to keep on top of their homework.
