Bill Turney from the cathedral congregation adds to a big bowl of treats to be packed into goodie bags for people in need. Bill and his wife Carolyn are among the frequent contributors to the Monday morning outreach program, baking delicious cookies for the guests. On Sept. 28th, 48 people received goodie bags, plus either city bus tickets or a $10 gift card for a local supermarket. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, distribution is done outdoors on the steps at the hall with social distancing. This method has been used since March and will be repeated again Oct. 26th. The outreach team thanks the congregation for its support.
Here are a few comments from our guests to help you realize how important your contribution is to these folks:
** "This is like gold to me!" - B.W., looking in his goodie bag; he had eaten nothing except Mr. Noodle for a week
** "Oh wow, I never get fruit!" - M.B., reaching immediately into the bag for a banana
** "Thank you so much for helping us out!" - H.C., who has four young children
This was the Outreach Committee's seventh month distributing gift cards and bus tickets outdoors since the pandemic started. The average attendance over that period has been 44 guests per month. ... See MoreSee Less

Blood pressure assessment, anyone?
It has been a long six months since we have held a Blood Pressure Clinic after worship on Sunday. If you would like to meet individually with the Parish Nurse, either in her office at the Memorial Hall, or have her visit you in your home, please contact Kathleen to arrange for an assessment. All COVID precautions will be maintained during these visits.
