Helping those in need

Our Community has been working with the Burnaby Society to End Homelessness to provide meals for those in need. We provide hot meals or sandwiches for their Outreach Centre one Thursday a month. 

Also, we volunteer with providing meals at the Ronald McDonald House for families staying there. 

If you would like to help out by volunteering or donating to these causes, please speak with Fr. Tim or email him at frprattas@gmail.com.
