St. Margaret’s Boat

Wayne Courage

A project of the Parish of the Ascension, Mount Pearl

Our mission is “reaching out to others,” and that is why once again we chose an Advent project related to our mission. We focused especially on the charitable work of Saint Margaret, who is the patron saint of the homeless, the falsely accused, the mentally ill, and the orphaned, when we were planning the project. Since we are still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to do something which would keep us within the mandated guidelines. Parishioners were encouraged to purchase books suited for two-to-four-year-old children, and to place them in Saint Margaret’s Boat that was situated in the side foyer. So, given the generosity of our parishioners, we gradually filled our boat with books for the Daybreak Child and Parent Centre. These books were presented and graciously received by Ms. Bethel, the Educational Director from the Centre during the morning service on December 12th. We trust that these books will bring much delight to the children who frequent this centre.
