ALL Services are Cancelled until further notice due to the State of Emergency declared by the Province of Manitoba on March 20th, 2020 and in accordance with guidelines set out by the Province of Manitoba that there be no public gatherings of more than 10 people on March 30th 2020.
We are all having a difficult time during this health crisis but can you just imagine how this is for the most vulnerable in our society? Having said that, we want to continue to support our partnership with St Matthews Maryland Community Ministry during this pandemic. We will continue to leave the buckets for the collection of food on the steps of the church if you are able to donate something there.
If you wish to make a monetary donation you could mail a cheque to the church (with St Matthews under memo); we would record that as a donation for you so that you get your tax receipt and then make sure that money goes directly to them. The church address is 110 Bridge Road, Headingley, MB R4H 1G3. You could also drop the envelope in the church mailbox as I am checking every day for food donations. Thanks for all your help and stay safe out there!
