VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – SHEPHERDS OF GOOD HOPE
For over 35 years, Annunciation and St. Gabriel’s have volunteered at the Shepherds of Good Hope’s soup kitchen, helping to serve Ottawa’s most vulnerable on Sundays in September and January. This invaluable service to our brothers and sisters in Christ has always been a rewarding outreach experience, and an opportunity for parishioners to serve alongside each other and build new friendships.
Hunger is a very real need in our community. We think of the words of Jesus in scripture—“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat”—and our hearts are moved to serve! Shepherds of Good Hope is serving more and more in our community as needs grow, and is looking for more volunteers. To keep fulfilling our parish commitment to their ministry, we want to grow our volunteer base!
If this ministry speaks to your heart, and you feel it may be something to which God is calling you, please reach out to Christine at email@example.com.
