Appreciation evening at St. Mary’s Parish, Montague, PE

Elizabeth Dunn, CND

One year ago, Saint Mary's Parish in Montague began to look into the possibility of sponsoring a refugee family. Other church communities were invited to join the committee and the Montague Lions Club offered to provide financial support. After several months of meetings and planning, a family of four arrived. It was a very rewarding experience for all who were involved in this venture. The church communities worked together and many commented on how this made a difference in their lives. People shared their gifts … be it for driving family members to appointments, the local dentist providing free service, retired teachers providing language training and others visiting the family and offering support.

On February 22nd St. Mary’s Parish had a celebration to mark the end of the committee members’ formal commitment to this family, but not the end of our relationship with them. Visitation Province provided financial support for this venture and the family and all on the committee were thankful for the sister's support. Please continue your support through prayer for this family as they continue to find a new life in our area.
