Through our Church School support, forty Welcome Backpacks were carefully filled with school supplies, toys, cuddly stuffed polar bears and other treats to share with children arriving in Canada through Jeremiah House this year. Calculators were given to the older children and hats and mitts were shared with family members as well. Our visits to Jeremiah House are when the blessing of this ministry really comes to life.

There have been more than 52 members of this parish who have or are working in the spirit of God within the school community.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat..." Matthew 25:34
