Good Shepherd Ministries

Joan Lewis, CND

It has been a wonderful and productive month in the clothing room at Good Shepherd Ministries in Toronto. I help in the distribution of clothes to the homeless people and received help from three seminarians from St. Augustine's Seminary, a novice of Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood and lay woman.

On these extremely cold days, it has been great to work together as a team; sorting donations, serving those who come looking for warm clothes, boots hygienic articles, etc. Even the opportunity to have a shower is appreciated. Upstairs, breakfast is served and throughout the entire building, the words of Jesus are echoed: "I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was naked and you clothed me.”

All will return to their studies. Only Zena, a faithful and generous lay woman will remain. However, I believe it will be an unforgettable experience that will mark their journey towards the priesthood and consecrated life. The highlight of the day is to celebrate Mass at noon in the small chapel at the center. We pray for all those who volunteer and those who come to the Good Shepherd. Please join us in prayer.
