Chalice Child Sponsorship
Our Lady of Victory currently supports two children through Chalice. If you are interested in contributing, you are invited to do so during mass. For more information please contact us.
We are currently aiding a family in need within our community. Food donations, perishable and non-perishables, can be made into the large box located at the entrance of the church. Any items in excess of the family’s needs are donated to other local families in need.
Syrian Refugee Families
The Tri-Parishes of Our Lady of Victory, St Margaret Mary and St Maria Goretti sponsored two Syrian refugee families – the Edrises and the Darwches – and we are now wrapping up their formal sponsorship. We hope to continue to have contact with these families as they build their lives in Canada.
Privately sponsored refugees rely solely on their sponsors for support during their first year in Canada. As sponsors, our three parishes will need to provide an estimated $30,000 in support to this family, which includes rent, utilities, food, etc. We will also need to provide an initial start up cost for furniture, clothing and food when our family first arrives.
Other faith communities, service organizations, schools, businesses and private citizens from the communities our parishes serve participated in this project and we have received a lot of great support from our communities. We thank everyone for their generosity in the support of the Edrises and the Darwches!
