Would you like to sponsor a table for someone or perhaps support the Spring Fling Snack Bar?All proceeds to support Breakfast club, SW Children special events, our food projects and supporting community in economically challenging times.
Mark your calendars. It's the day before Mother's day, so bring your mum!

Spring Cleaning? 
We are looking for kitchen items and household items, appliances, tools, sports items, intact toys, games and puzzles for our Spring Fling Bazaar. Call ahead to drop off at the Mission on weekdays between 9 and 2. 

That eagerly awaited first-Saturday-of-the-month is nearly here! Get ready for Bingo, May 5th at the church! Cost at the door is $5, which gets you your first bingo card and a ticket for the (cash) door prize. Additional bingo cards can be bought for 50 cents. Doors open at 12:00, play begins at 1PM and refreshments are available (donations gratefully accepted). Please note that this is in the basement of the church, at 1445 rue Clemenceau in Crawford Park. Good luck!

Our self-serve fridge and pantry shelf are receiving a lot of traffic, to the point where the cupboard is often pretty bare. If ever you find yourself with non-perishables you won't use, or perishables maybe close to their expiry date, consider donating them to help feed the community. Drop off at the Mission weekdays between 9 and 2.

Welcome Wednesday
Our most recent Community Meal was enjoyed by over 90 people of all ages. Lunch continues every Wednesday through May and June, with a little break in July. Join us next Wednesday, May 2nd, and pay what you can!

Crocuses have been sighted in numerous locations around Verdun. We think it's safe to say that Spring is underway!
