Summer Snack Program. Our Outreach Committee is once again joining with other churches
to sponsor the Summer Snack Program for children attending day camps in the Northeast.
Needed are volunteers for Monday mornings in the summer from 7:30 to 9:30 am. The work is
to pick up the pre-ordered groceries at the Superstore on Oxford at Gamage, deliver them to
Northbrae School on Belford, help pack the snacks for the week, and then drop off the snacks to
the camp(s). If you could help with this once or twice through July and August, please contact the office.
We have much to be thankful for this week. We are able to provide a cool space for friends who
join us for breakfast during this hot weather. We can provide help for the new people coming to
each breakfast – newcomers to Canada, students, young families, and seniors. We have new
volunteers to share the work with those who have worked tirelessly over the past few years. And
St. John the Evangelist Outreach Committee are donating $1800.00 to recognize our support of
their evening meal program through the years and the service our program brings to the
community. As always, we give thanks for the ongoing prayers and support of the St. Jude’s
parish family that are essential to this vital outreach ministry.
Our next breakfast is this Saturday June 3rd from 9 – 10:30 am. All are welcome!
