Catholic Schools' Week - Jan 29-Feb 4, 2023 Today marks the beginning of Catholic Schools' Week (CSW).

The theme this year is Seeking Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation.

Each and every year, Catholic schools join together to share a message about the importance and value of Catholic education to the Church and society as a whole.

For those that are not aware, there are five Catholic Schools in the Diocese (4 elementary and 1 high school) educating approximately 1400 students in the communities of Port Alberni, Duncan and Victoria.

On behalf of all the Catholic schools in the diocese, thank you for your ongoing support whether that be through prayer, time, talent or treasure.
Catholic Education is a valuable ministry in the Church and diocese so we ask that you please continue to pray for their success.

SOCIETY OF SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL OF VANCOUVER ISLAND
OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE CONFERENCE
ST. PATRICK’S PARISH, CAMPBELL RIVER
OLOG NEWSLETTER – THE OLD AND NEW IN 2022

Dear Parishioners:

In 2022 your financial and food contributions and your prayers supported our conference’s programs in the following ways:

Locally:

  • Our delivery teams made 71 visits to family homes, and 84 adult homes. 298 adults and 155 children received food hampers

  • By the end of 2022 over 40 students at Cedar Elementary School were receiving a daily lunch, with food supplies purchased through SVDP

  • A steady volume of calls from Rose Harbour for “Welcome” kits and food hampers were received, and a total number of 15 kits, hampers and supplies for their emergency food cupboard were delivered to women and their children transitioning into residence at Rose Harbour

  • Second Chance Recovery House for men operated at full capacity in 2022 (with wait lists) Our monthly meat supplies greatly helped to offset their food expenses

North Island:

  • Tahsis: 60-65 homes received food, and other much needed items from Saint Vincent de Paul, Loaves and Fishes Food Bank, CR Food Bank, and the CR and Comox branches of the BCSPCA. A monthly average of 92 adults and 18 children received food assistance. Our donations also helped feed 50 dogs, 24 cats, 6 rabbits and 1 parrot

  • The Gold River Food Network saw an increase in walk-ins to their location, on top of the 20-30 hampers picked up each month. 28 dogs and cats received donations of pet food from the BCSPCA. The high school and local daycare were among several community organizations who also received food assistance

  • Food distribution to Zeballos and surrounding First Nation communities began in 2022 Approximately 35 homes on low income assistance received food, and other supplies. . For Christmas dinner these homes received a frozen turkey, complete with all the trimmings

  • By the end of 2022 nearly 100 people each Sunday lined up for a Sunday lunch at the downtown community kitchen Our emergency food hamper delivery service continued. Unfortunately the hazardous snow conditions disrupted this service at the end of the month.

In 2022 you helped make the dreams of many come true. Thank you, and God bless you

Happy New Year!
