Life Wood Buffalo 2024 Bottle Drive

Life Wood Buffalo has kicked off their Fundraising Campaign for Life

In efforts to bring the Truth about the Gift of Life to our community we need your support. We have started a monthly bottle drive with help from  Parishes in the Wood Buffalo Region. Lord willing, we will keep doing this Bottle Drive the first Saturday Mass of every month at the same time and locations, before the Saturday evening masses. Please bring your refundable beverage containers for donation. 

St John’s, 5PM   &   St Paul’s, 7PM


Life Wood Buffalo will be set up with trucks and our banner in front of the garage doors at the Office to receive your bottles prior to mass.  


If you typically do not attend mass at these times or for whatever reason can not drop off your bottles but would still like to help us with a donation or arrange an alternate bottle drop-off, please email:

To become a member of Life Wood Buffalo please email us at and don’t forget to check us out on Facebook or our webpage Life Wood Buffalo!
