Entrance to Good Shepherd Church

Volunteer at Good Shepherd Refuge

The Knights of Columbus Council #8340 of the Good Shepherd parish has volunteered to serve lunch at the Good Shepherd Refuge since the1983. Until 2020 when our volunteering efforts were interrupted by public health restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we had contributed almost 20,000 volunteer-hours.

Once a year, in October, we have a winter clothing appeal in the parish and the volunteers bring the donations to the Good Shepherd Refuge for the homless.

Each month, we send two teams of volunteers to the Good Shepherd Refuge: one on the third Sunday of the month and one on the 4th Friday of the month. Volunteers typically leave the Church around 1:00 p.m. and return by 5:00 p.m. depending on traffic. Lunch service at the Good Shepherd Refuge is from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Interested persons can contact Barry Singh at barrysingh@rogers.com or leave a message at the parish office.

Students who are fulfilling their volunteering mandates are welcome to join us.
