Activity Report for the month of November 2022

Dear Parishioners:

November’s Soup Drive in honour and recognition of this year’s World Day of the Poor was a great success. Thank you for participation and contributions, which totalled 451 items, weighing 326 pounds. May God richly bless both the giver and receiver of these donations.

Other activities that happened this month are as follows:

  • Our Adopted Family are the proud parents and brothers of a 9lb baby girl, delivered on November 28th. Name to be announced. Mother and baby are doing well.
  • Our emergency food hamper delivery service continued. Unfortunately the hazardous snow conditions disrupted this service at the end of the month.
  • The generous outpouring of donations received from parishioners, their families and friends, and the CR Food Bank enabled Start Up Kits and Hampers to be delivered to meet the urgent needs of the arrival of 4 new residents moving into Rose Harbour (some with children). The Emergency Food Cupboard was also restocked. Rose Harbour has 28 units. An average number of clients per month is forty. The number of children is less than in previous years, still around twelve.
  • The number of children provided a daily lunch at Cedar School Elementary has increased to approximately 40 children. We continue to support this lunch program with a monthly supply of lunch items.
  • Along with the monthly meat supply, we delivered a variety of appetizers and a donated tray of desserts for the men at Second Chance Recovery House to enjoy, while watching the Grey Cup Game. It was a great time of celebration, fun food, and fellowship. AA held a Gratitude Day in which many clients participated in several fun events. Having fun in Recovery is an important.
  • The downtown community kitchen prepared and served 4 hot and healthy Sunday lunches to an increasing number of people. We supply the meats for these lunches.
  • It was another successful month of food transportation and distribution to our north island outreach villages of Tahsis, Gold River, Zeballos, and surrounding first nation communities. Our donations included pet food, personal items (Tahsis, Gold River) frozen turkeys with all the trimmings (Zeballos)Spare ribs (Tahsis) canned soups and canned vegetables (Gold River)

The Seasons change, they come and go. Through each changing season the work of our Society carries on, thanks to your food and financial contributions, and your prayers.

Thank you for your continued support.

May the hope, joy, peace and love of this blessed Advent Season be with you and yours.
