There has been so much talk of construction projects lately that you may have got the impression SouthWest is closing down. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Here's a handy-dandy guide to what is changing, and what is continuing as usual.
SouthWest Church: 10:00 Sunday morning services are continuing!
We had a scare when we thought the street would be closed for the whole summer, but now it seems roadwork will only start sometime in August on Clemenceau. We will certainly let you know if worship has to be moved elsewhere at some point, but for now, the church is open and All are welcome!
Join us this Sunday June 24th as we partner with our Sikh neighbours to provide a St-Jean Baptiste Mobile Bruch, starting at 11:30 at SouthWest church.
Outreach services continue as usual at the Champlain hospital, Cavalier and Floralies LaSalle residences.
Bingo will be back the first Saturday in September.
SouthWest Office: the Mission space will be closed from June 30th through July 15th, but Rev. David will still be available for meetings, pastoral care etc. We will still be responding to phone calls and e-mail and producing the Friday newsletter.
SouthWest Mission Kitchen: The renovation project at the school has forced the closing of the kitchen for the summer. There will be no collective kitchens. After the two-week closure, Community lunches will continue in a simplified form: Every Wednesday from the 18th of July to the 29th of August at 12:30 we will serve up an informal salad lunch in the Mission yard out front. Voluntary contribution. Volunteers needed.
Welcome Wednesday lunches will return September 5th.
Meli-Melo the last Sunday of the month will be potluck style. Bring a dish to share! July 29th and August 26th at 12:30.
Mini-market: There will be no markets in July. Join us back at the Mission on August 1st, 15th and 29th!
Good Food Family: There will be baskets next week, June 27th, then a break until July 25th. Call Terry by July 20th to place your order, 514-979-8058.
Halte allaitement: The drop-in breastfeeding clinics usually held on Friday afternoons will move to the CLSC at 400 rue de l’Église for two weeks, July 6th and 13th. As of the 20th they are back at the Mission most Fridays. Pick up a schedule next time you pass by or check the calendar on our website.
AA groups: Just For Today group (Saturday evenings) and Verdun Metro group (Sunday mornings) are unfortunately being displaced for the weekends of June 30-July 1st; July 7&8; July 14&15. For information, call Verdun Metro: (438) 935-8064; Just for Today: (514) 924-8970.
Breakfast Club returns the first day of school, August 29th.
