AUGUST ACTIVITY NEWS FROM SVDPOUR LADY OF GUADALUPE CONFERENCE

A mass intention for all donors who give to our Society was said by Father Frank at the 5pm Saturday mass, on August 28th. Claude Bedard (SVDP National President) and Paul Bertrand (OLOG Conference President) presented the offering gifts to Father Frank.

Here is a summary of the work of our conference in the month of August: - Food, personal and household items continue to be dropped off to our storeroom. Our Emergency Food Hamper Service shut down in August, ready to resume operation after Labour Day with fully stocked shelves, freezers and fridge.

- 280 clients of the downtown Community Kitchen were served a hot, nutritious lunch each Sunday. These higher numbers may be due to more out-of-towners being served meals over the summer months. Our City’s growing vulnerable population may also be finding out more about the resources available to them

- A monthly grocery shop with our Adopted Family is helping to provide the assistance needed for this family to continue to strive for a better way of life

- Commercial Trucking has now been secured for both Tahsis and Gold River. With a refrigerated 5 ton truck we are now able to provide more perishable and non-perishable food items, personal and household items and pet food to both these communities

- Summer grilling for men in recovery at Second Chance continued, with the monthy meat supplies provided by our Society

- One “Welcome Kit” for Rose Harbour is ready for delivery, with shopping and packing underway to prepare 2 more

We are grateful for the many ways your contributions help support our conference’s programs. Thank you and God bless you.

Recycle for the Building Fund Thank you to everyone who is contributing to the building fund by dropping off bottles and cans at the back door of the church hall every Saturday 10 am till noon. Your efforts have raised over $20,155.00 thus far. Just goes to show that "every little bit helps!”
