Society of Saint Vincent de Paul on Vancouver Island
Our Lady of Guadalupe Conference, St. Patrick’s Parish
Activity Report for the month of April 2022

Dear Parishioners:

Here’s what happened in the life of our conference in April……..

IN CAMPBELL RIVER

• Our dispatch report indicated a very busy month for food hamper deliveries. 21 home visits were made. 43 adults and 24 children received food assistance

• An increase in the purchasing of both perishable and non-perishable food items was needed to replenish our stock. Food donations that were dropped off to our storeroom were greatly appreciated

• A request from Rose Harbour was received for assistance to a mother with a young infant. A Start Up Kit, Food Hamper and a Baby Supply Kit (along with diapers) was delivered

• Our Adopted Family had a busy month. The mother is doing the practical part of her course at a Care Facility in Courtenay. Their father is working a steady five days per week at the Anchor Inn as one of their top Chefs. The boys are enjoying their French Immersion School, their teachers and especially the director, who speaks Arabic, and spent time in their native country of Morocco. Their application for a home through Habitat for Humanity appears one step closer in the process at this time

• 225 plated meals were served at the downtown community kitchen. The kitchen is now equipped with a new walk in pantry, and walk in fridge, built by the Rotary Club

ON THE NORTH ISLAND

• 25 hampers were distributed from the Gold River Food Network, along with food provisions for 41 Drop Ins. Our food also helped support 2 community programs (GR Secondary School and the GR Daycare Centre)

• Food distribution records received from the Ehatis Band Office (just outside of Zebellos) indicated that 28 households (117 individuals) received assistance

• In Tahsis food hampers are delivered weekly. In April 36 single households, 12 households with couples, and 12 families with a combined total of 15 children received hampers.

We gratefully acknowledge your prayers, food donations and financial contributions that keep us moving forward with these projects. Thank you and God bless you.

 

The construction of the St. Patrick’s Church extension and renovation is well under way. To keep the parishioners of the parish informed of the progress of the task, an ongoing series of photos indicating various phases of the effort is being uploaded and may be accessed by clicking

We will be celebrating the 9 AM and 11 AM Masses in the upstairs Sanctuary Sunday May 22nd. This is provisional upon hourly inspections.

We thank you for your prayers, helping hands and continued financial support. God bless you and say a little prayer.
