Our gifts for Mission & Service support meal programs like the one at the House of Lazarus Community Outreach Mission in Mountain, Ontario.

House of Lazarus has had great success in building community through community partnership and sharing hope through new programs. It is helping develop Places for People Dundas County, a new affordable housing project for the community. Its Green Food Box program is the largest of its kind in the area. The program provides people with staple and seasonal fruits and vegetables along with simple and nutritious recipes. The House of Lazarus team, which includes 18 employees, nine board members, and more than 100 volunteers, is the driving force behind it all.

“I witness the passion and the dedication of the House of Lazarus team daily,” notes Executive Director Cathy Ashby. “Their commitment to this community is commendable. Their efforts ensure that programs continue and gaps in service are filled. I look forward to the coming year and its promises.”

If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please join me in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith. Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service.
