FATHER LACOMBE NURSING HOME VOLUNTEERS
Contact: Frank Wong
There is an active Team Ministry to the Father Lacombe Nursing Home. Volunteers offer a few hours a month in various activities. On Friday mornings there is a “Sing-Along” which a group of St Paul’s volunteers attend. Our clergy and volunteers also hold a service on the fourth Sunday of each month.
HOMELESS SHELTERS AND AGENCIES
Several times a year we collect clothing, shoes, toys or small household (dishes, towels, bed linens, etc.). We also deliver left over food from events to the Calgary Dream Centre several times a year. Thank you.
Donations of non-perishable food items and money are relayed to the Food Bank via the current volunteer. The first Sunday of the month we collect for the Food Bank.
FOSTER CHILD (SUNDAY SCHOOL OF CANADA)
The collection made at Sunday School accumulates to the benefit of Desta, the Ethiopian Foster Child sponsored by St. Paul's Sunday School. Letters and photos are on display in the hall.
