The nine food ministries selected represent a cross-section of diverse BC communities within our Diocese, including Swallowtail ministry in Chilliwack. Our sister parish, St. Thomas', funding will be tied to the work of Swallowtail Society which aids people on the street through food ministry and then clinical counselling. Swallowtail is the work of Jolene and Jay Holland, participants in the St. Thomas congregation. They often can't make the service because they're busy collecting and sorting food.
The Care and Share brochures have been distributed to the parishes. St. Thomas, and other selected parishes will be recipients of Care and Share funding that comes about through the gifts of parishioners throughout the diocese. Please pick up a brochure when you come to the church and read about the focus for 2022-23.
If you'd like to contribute, you can use the envelope that accompanies the brochure. You can also contribute using this link.
