Proposal to Renovate Parish House to Provide a Home for Our Refugee Family

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matt. 25:40)

Parish Council proposes to renovate the Parish House to accommodate both the Church Office and a family dwelling.

Because this involves both property development and a financial cost, Parish Council decided to consult the congregation by providing this information sheet and putting the proposal to a vote which will take place on November 29.

Background

Syrian Refugee Sponsorship Project

St Paul’s and Almonte United Church (AUC) are partnering together to sponsor a refugee family from Syria. While this project is being spear headed by our two churches, it is very much a community initiative and any and all help is welcome. We are also working in collaboration with the Syrian Refugee Committee of Mississippi Mills which is a resource for any sponsoring group.

St. Paul's participates in ADHS Breakfast Program

It’s hard to fill your mind with knowledge if you haven’t first filled your stomach – and that’s why Almonte and District High School (ADHS) has started a breakfast program for all of their students with help from local churches. Volunteers from Hillside Reformed Presbyterian Church, St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Cornerstone Community Church and the Almonte United Church work in rotation throughout the week to both prepare and clean up.
