Over 25 outreach programs and ministries participated in the St. Joseph’s Parish Open House on 10 February 2019, sharing the different ways that this church tries to remain engaged with the peoples and communities of the contemporary world. From anti-poverty initiatives such as the St. Joe’s Supper Table and the Women’s Centre, to Development and Peace, refugee outreach, sacramental preparation and the English Conversation Group (and lots in between), there was plenty to see. Here’s a glimpse!

Thank you to Greg Forestell and Patricia Malikail for organizing this event. Many thanks as well to Terry Byrne and his Social Committee for providing refreshments, and to all other volunteers who helped out!
