In 2006 we began an intentional outreach to support individuals and families touched by poverty.
Since that time in goods and cash we have donated the equivalent of $14,000 to the Brant Food Bank, Our Daily Bread Food program and the Cambridge Shelter.
For our church outreach, during the 6 weeks of Lent, parishioners have been collecting the many food items so desperately needed by the Brantford Food Bank. Each week, our focus has been on one type of food. Some of the items we have been collecting are canned tuna, salmon, chicken, ham, canned vegetables and fruit, dry pastas and sauces, cereals, oatmeal, peanut butter, crackers, canned soups, beans and baby formula.
On Saturday, April 9th at our church in St. George, we will have a community wide Food Drive from 10:00 to 12:00. Our church is very grateful for all the parishioners` and community`s support in this very successful endeavour!
On Friday, April 15th , at 2:00pm, we will have our Good Friday service, led by Canon Mario Hryniewicz. Our Easter Sunday service on the 17th , is at 10:00 am, when we will sing the joyous Easter hymns while rejoicing in Christ`s resurrection! Please feel welcome to join us! All are masked during our services to keep everyone safe.
There’s no better feeling than making a positive impact on someone’s life. Share that experience with your friends, neighbors, family and coworkers by inviting them to participate in our "Used Shoes for Africa" drive. There are two marked containers in the parking lot that are available for contributions.
We also anticipate being able to help the Cambridge Shelter because of generous donations from our local community.
Ove the years we have held many community yard sales with proceeds going to support our partners. Our community and members of our parish have always been very generous in donating items for the sale and in supporting these events that play such a significant role in the community.
Our Holy Trinity community filled the mitten tree with mittens, scarves, hats and socks.
This year we donated all of this to Cambridge Bridges that serves the needs of those without shelter. Because of the pandemic, those without work or shelter has grown significantly.
We will be launching a new program in 2022 for those individuals aged 50 and over, where we will be providing aging strategies and resources from within our St. George community.
