Our Lady of Guadalupe Conference, St. Patrick’s Parish
Activity Report for the month of September 2022

Dear Parishioners:

The Mission of our Society is to… “LIVE THE GOSPEL MESSAGE BY SERVING CHRIST IN THE POOR WITH LOVE, RESPECT, JUSTICE AND JOY”

Here are some of the ways we carried this message to those in need, in the month of September:

  • Our weekly hamper deliveries resumed in September. 16 calls were received, and 16 home visits made. 29 adults and 16 children received food assistance.

  • The children of our adopted family returned to school. The youngest now in Grade 1 and the oldest starting Grade 5. The family is making great strides towards achieving their goal of becoming Habitat for Humanity Homeowners. We continue to support them with monthly groceries, and are currently gathering donations of baby supplies for the newest addition to their family, expected in early December.

  • A variety of lunch items were purchased for the Cedar Elementary School Lunch Program.

  • Two Welcome Kits, and food hampers were delivered to new residents of Rose Harbour. Another unit consisting of a woman with children received a box of art supplies for the children, women’s clothing for the mother, and a popcorn and bread maker for the family. The gathering of donations and purchasing of household items is always ongoing.

  • News from Second Chance Recovery House for Men indicated a very busy summer. Their home was full, and they have received a great many applications for their program. The need continues to be great.

  • It was another busy month at the downtown community kitchen. Over 280 were served a hot Sunday lunch (meat supplies from SVDP). There are wait lines at serving time. Community organizations such as Rotary and the Anglican Church are helping out with vegetables and other donations.

  • Our North Island communities of Tahsis, Gold River (Tsaxana) and Zeballos(Ehattesaht and Oclucje First Nations) continue to receive our monthly meat contributions, donations of pet food and personal items.

  • Plans for the completion of our new and bigger storeroom are underway. When completed, it will provide more storage space for our existing delivery service, Rose Harbour Welcome Kits/Hampers, with additional space for the expansion of future projects.

Your contributions help us to fulfill our mission, month after month. Thank you for your support.
God bless you all, and see you next month on the parish website.
