Young Neighbours in Action!
From Sunday July 27th to Saturday August 2nd. St. Patrick’s Church will be home to the Young Neighbours in Action Program. 60 young people from the USA and Toronto will come together for a week of service, reflection, prayer and fun. During the day, they work at several inner-city organizations and in the evening they reflect on their work experience through activities, games and prayer.
Four of our people from St. Patrick’s are participating in this wonderful opportunity for service and ministry. Please keep the entire group in prayer as they learn to make a difference through service and through the mission of the Church.
