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. 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.
