News of the day ...


Christ’s Church Cathedral Anglican Diocese of Niagara is looking for volunteers in their new Resting and Hygiene Centre as a COVID-19 outreach ministry with an at-risk group in our community – those who are homeless or precariously housed.


The Resting and Hygiene centre will provide a physically distanced area, for up to ten persons at a time, for resting, use of washrooms and providing light refreshments.


The target date for opening is May 11, 2020 during the hours of 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. continuing seven days a week.  Volunteers and staff would arrive prior to and stay a little after the centre’s hours.  The programme will be located at Myler Hall, Christ’s Church Cathedral, 252 James Street North, Hamilton, ON  L8R 2L3


The target date for training on-site staff & volunteers is May 7, 2020, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.


On-site volunteers must be healthy, not subject to a pre-existing medical condition which would disqualify their direct involvement and be between 18 and 64 years of age inclusive.  Others may provide background, logistical support.
