Notre Dame-de la Rue, extends her hand to the homeless. It is a presence and comfort of the Church. Catholic Action visited Father Claude Paradis to see how we can assist him with his good work. Accompanied by volunteers, Father Paradis and his deputy Kevin go out on the street several times a week. They will meet people where they are and bring a spiritual presence, helping to make sense of what people are experiencing. This can take various forms, depending on the needs: prayer, Eucharistic and funeral celebrations, listening, and of course food and clothing. As all good work , Notre-Dame de la rue needs our help! If you have used clothing for men, women or children, boots in good condition, the homeless can use them. Do you have time to make some sandwiches, add some energy bars to your grocery list? All these needed donations can be delivered to 1071 rue de la Cathedral, attention Father Claude Paradis. You could also send a financial donation to :L’Archevêché de Montréal (Notre-Dame de la rue), 2000 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montréal, QC, H3H 1G4 A tax receipt will be issued by the diocese.

With the new year upon us Catholic Action is out visiting new parishes and sharing our story and good works. This is St. John’s Fisher Church in Pointe Claire. The gospel this day: Jesus said, “Follow Me”. What a great introduction to the mission of Catholic Action, “using our gifts to serve our neighbour”!
