Catholic Social Services
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our Boston Hope Party in Wetaskiwin on Thursday, October 20th!
The three-day conference was a gathering for professionals, volunteers, and partners of various Catholic charitable organizations across the United States and Canada, looking to innovate and strategize new methodologies for advancing their work and reducing poverty within their respective communities.
We held our Uplift: Day of Mercy event on Saturday, October 1, supporting those in need within the Edmonton community. Approximately 800 guests came down to St. Alphonsus Parish and Eastwood Community League, along 118 Avenue, where they enjoyed live entertainment and fun activities for the entire family.
"The doors that we open at Catholic Social Services are precisely doors of mercy that enable an all-important transition for the people we serve. A transition from what can be very tough places into a space of welcome, of love, and of assistance."
The house that once served as the main office in Wetaskiwin was renamed after St. Dymphna, during a blessing ceremony on Wednesday, September 7.
