Our overall experience at The Welcome Home could only be described with three words: Informing, Exciting, and Inspiring. Our experience really helped us to become more aware of why the importance of awareness of poverty is such a big deal, and how we can get involved/help out. During our trip, we learned what the Welcome Home does, in terms of making hampers, donating and giving basic necessities to the poor such as hygiene products, food, jackets, blankets, pillows, and much more. As we learned about this, we came to a sudden realization how important the Welcome Home is to the community, and how much people are in need of them and depend on them. Upon leaving the vicinity, we were able to grasp and learn the importance of what we have, since most people aren’t as fortunate as us, and despite this, we can pitch in to help by doing just the same; giving to our communities, charities, and to anyone else in need. That’s the only way we can fight against poverty. – Katharine B, Amy H, and Diza A

On September 27, for Christian Service Day our Grade 7D class had the privilege to visit and help at St. Paul the Apostle church. When we arrived we began by polishing the pews, dusting and cleaning. The St. Paul the Apostle church staff were truly welcoming and treated us to a snack of juice and Timbits! After we were finished our snack we visited with Father Eric and his dog Zack! Finally, we finished the morning by raking leaves. We are so grateful for this experience and the opportunity to give back to our community!
Thank you to everyone at St. Paul the Apostle church for your warm hospitality!
