The members of our outreach ministry gather information about the needs, plans and goals of our surrounding neighbourhood, identify St. Margaret in-the-Pines parishioners whose gifts match those needs and encourage them to volunteer and participate in that particular ministry.  The members support and/or oversee our existing  community projects, such as:
  • Our Caring Hands Ministry that makes and distributes scarves and mitts to neighbouring schools.
  • Our Back Pack Ministry that provides backpacks to students in neighbouring schools.
  • Distributing our White Gift Sunday items to families in need.
  • Assisting families in need who have been identified through other agencies such as Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities.
The main focus of our outreach ministry is to provide assistance to meet the needs of our neighbourhood that are not being adequately served by others. For more information about our outreach ministry, please speak to Jackie Tannis.
