Special Friends exists to help kids and students with special needs access our programs and ministries, while growing in their friendship and knowledge of Christ in a safe and accepting environment, empowering caregivers to do the same. 

In short, Special Friends provides opportunities for access, growth, and care. 

The spirit of Special Friends is one of inclusion; therefore, the ministry matches kids/students, who have special needs, with an adult or teenage buddy to help integrate the child/student into our programs and ministries.

Our Next Service Saturday

Our Next Service Saturday 

will be
May 26, 2018

- Watch for Details!

Twice each year, in the Fall and Spring, our parish hosts a Service Saturday. This is a day when we, as a parish family, go out into the wider community and lend a helping hand to those in need. 

We have especially "adopted" several charities: The Out of the Cold "Bridges Shelter" located in Cambridge, and Michael House, a home for unwed mothers located in Guelph and Carmelite Monastery in St. Agatha, the residence for religious sisters (nuns) who are cloistered and dedicated to prayer and contemplation for the life of the Church.

In the Fall we hold our "Blanket Brigade" in which we collect blankets for the homeless, and each Spring our "Green Bag Saturday" collects clothing and household items which are given to our local St. Vincent de Paul Store which in turn pass it on to families in need.

Reaching Out and Giving Back

- We partnered with St. Vincent de Paul Society, Cambridge, Bridges Shelter, Cambridge, Carmelite Sisters in St. Agatha, Michael House in Guelph and the Brothers of the Good Shepherd in Hamilton.

A great way to get your high school volunteer hours
