Outreach

The work of St. Matthew’s  Outreach Committee is never ending; those with needs are always with us and require our help. At St. Matthew’s, we support organizations where our donations will make the biggest difference. Presently, our parish, through many groups including the Mothers’ Union, and St. Matthew’s Outreach Committee, is participating in the following Outreach programs:

Warm Socks Needed

Please help us provide men’s and women’s warm socks for distribution to homeless shelters.  We did great last year, but there are more in need this year. Collection crates in the Narthex, Church Hall & Parish Hall.

Caring and Calling

Canon Susan is forming a team to keep in contact with parishioners who do not have email or have been missing from church for a few weeks. If you would like to participate or know someone who would benefit from someone checking in on them, please contact Donna Jackson (905-637-2114) or Margaret Schuett (905-333-4172).


Out-4-Lunch

We serve lunch on Mondays at 12:00pm. We are now on hiatus for the holidays. We will return Monday, February 3, 2020, weather permitting. Please speak to Paulene Jodry for more information.


Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund

Support to this worldwide relief fund is through the use of our blue church envelopes and special PWRDF envelopes distributed throughout the year.


Partnership West Food Bank

Partnership West, our community food bank, is always in need of non-perishable food items. There is a basket in the Narthex for food. Financial donations can also be made directly to Partnership West.


Halton Women’s Place

Halton Women’s Place is a shelter in our community where women and their children can go to find refuge. We try to keep informed of the needs of the centre and respond when we can.


Compassion Society

Many members of our congregation volunteer their time at the Compassion Society which provides clothing, food and referrals to local resources. Their vision is to grow a generous community of people helping people leading to overall improved lives.
