“The Visitation” – Charity towards your neighbour

OUR NEXT SERVICE SATURDAY IS ...

May 26, 2018

We are having our Service Saturday and here are some

..... WAYS TO HELP ...............

Reaching Out and Giving Back

Twice each year, in the Fall and Spring, our parish hosts a Service Saturday. This is a day when we, as a parish family,  go out into the wider community and lend a helping hand to those in need. We have especially "adopted" several  charities: The Out of the Cold "Bridges Shelter" located in Cambridge, and "Michael House", a home for unwed mothers located in Guelph and Carmelite Monastery in St Agatha; the residence for religious sisters (nuns) who are cloistered and dedicated to prayer and contemplation for the life of the Church. In the Fall we hold our "Blanket Brigade" in which we collect blankets for the homeless, and each Spring our "Green Bag Saturday" collects clothing and household items which are given to our local St Vincent de Paul Store which in turn pass it on to families in need.

Partnering with St Patrick Parish - downtown Hamilton

St Patrick Parish in downtown Hamilton offers a food kitchen and outreach for between 125 - 150 a day, seven days a week. We seek to partner with them.

 Collect and donate cans of coffee, sugar, bottled water, pop or chocolate bars… It might sound a bit “unhealthy” menu, but precisely that’s what patrons need as many of them deal with different forms of addiction and mental health issues. 

Please leave these items near the coat rack outside the Parish Chapel.

We will be traveling to Hamilton to aide with serving a meal on Service Saturday
