Local Outreach

Throughout the year we collect socks and other clothing items that are distributed to various outreach programs in the city, including Foyer Notre Dame, Genevra House, Corner Clinic, and Better Beginnings, Better Futures. We also collect and distribute knitted goods to the Muskoka Knitters for Global Warmth.

As members of the “Downtown Churches Group” we dialogue with other local churches to explore ways of addressing issues that are unique to the downtown core and how some of the gaps in services might be addressed.

Educational opportunities to parishioners are offered several times per year through the “Lunch & Learn” ministry following Sunday service. A light lunch is provided along with the opportunity for informal questions following a short presentation. Speakers are invited from groups/organizations from within the city (although, on occasion we are fortunate to have a speaker from a national or international project).
