Linking Hands Dundas County Homelessness Maze

On Friday, April 12, 2019, Linking Hands Dundas County will be hosting a Homelessness Maze at Joel Steele Community Centre in Winchester from 10 am to 3 pm.
Members of the local branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association will be facilitating the event. The purpose of the maze is twofold: to provide a realistic vision of individual challenges that people may be confronted with when searching for basic needs (food, housing, finances); and, to promote awareness and education of current community resources.
You are invited to participate in this event, which will include a lunch catered by Leatherworks.
The cost to participate is $32.80 per person. Tickets are available at:

Refugee Sponsorship

The Presbytery of Seaway-Glengarry has decided to sponsor a refugee family. To that end a Refugee sponsorship committee has been formed. They have asked each pastoral charge to name a representative. Garnet Thompson from Morewood has agreed to be our representative. The cost to sponsor a family is approximately $30,000. Support for the programme will be by freewill donations through our local churches to the Presbytery. Our refugee family has arrived and is thriving in Kemptville. This venture was very successfull, and as a Presbytery, we have agreed to support another refugee; freewill donations are ongoing.
