The Jesse Tree is coming during Advent! Every
year, St. Matthew’s organizes this gift-giving project
for Harmony House. Started in 1987 as an outreach
program of St. Matthew’s, Harmony House is a second stage shelter, assisting women and their children
move from a life of fear and abuse to one of security,
confidence and independence. It is the only second
stage women’s shelter in all of Eastern Ontario. A "tree" will be placed
at the front of the church with tags on Sunday November 30, 2014 naming an item needed at HH. Parishioners will be invited to take a tag,
purchase the item for the residents, then leave the wrapped and tagged
gifts at the base of the tree between December 1st and December 14th.
The gifts will be delivered on Tuesday December 16th.
Congratulations to the Atkins family upon the birth of
Alfred Miles and to the Henry family upon the birth of
