Hands4Christ a huge success!
We would like to thank the 14 children and youth of the Parish who participated in our Hands4Christ program this past week. It was an experience of giving, sharing and helping. They saw God in the many tasks their hands were able to perform from baking cookies and selling them along with Ice Tea for Asha Deep to serving the homeless at St. Felix Centre. They put their heart and soul in what they did. We hope all the best to each one of them and that they may go out and continue to live the Gospel of God each day and always reach out to someone in need. Thank you to our Team, Loretta Conte, Karen Keays and Madison Doglio-Marquardt for their leadership with the program!
