The One Heart, One Soul Campaign is an initiative by the Diocese of Hamilton to help build up its parishes. The goal is for each parish to raise funds, the majority of which will go back to the parish for their chosen projects and the remaining will go towards supporting shared ministries within the Diocese (i.e. prison ministry, campus ministry, etc..) as well as to parishes in need.
St. Patrick Parish is part of the 3rd wave of parishes to launch the campaign. We hope to follow the lead of the parishes in the past two waves who have already completed their campaign and have seen great success, even amidst the pandemic. For more information, please visit https://www.
Thank you in advance for any support that you can offer! If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the parish office at 905-522-9828.
Here is a message about the campaign from Fr. Tony O’Dell, OMI:
The Rest & Hygiene Station continues to run during this time of lockdown; however, until further notice, our hours of operation are now Monday-Friday, 2:00-5:00 PM. This program is run in order to meet the basic necessities of the homeless and vulnerable in our community. This includes the use of a restroom, access to refreshments and access to hygiene products. Anyone in need is welcome provided that, before entering, the screening questions are answered and a mask is worn.
This station would not be able to run without the generosity of our parishioners, friends and community partners. If you would like to volunteer your time to provide this much needed resource to our community, please call the office and leave your name and contact information. A member of our staff will be in contact with you with further details. Alternatively, if you are unable to volunteer your time, your monetary donations to the church would be greatly appreciated so that we can pay for the heating and lighting within the church during our hours of operation. We would also be grateful for any donations of new socks and new underwear for both men and women.
As always, we thank you for your continuous and generous support.
