Montreal has been hit with unseasonably cold weather this month, and a Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (MCEC) congregation is doing what it can to help members of the city’s homeless population get by.
Hochma church is the home to Care Montreal, an outreach program that opens its doors to around 30 people every night. The program gives folks food to eat and a place to sleep.
CBC Montreal recently featured the program on its news broadcast.
Over the last year, volunteers from Mennonite Disaster Service and various MCEC congregations travelled to Montreal to help renovate Hochma’s basement so that it can house Care Montreal.
MCEC recently shared the above video in its e-newsletter, along with a short statement from Michel Monette, co-pastor at Hochma.
“Hochma wants to say a big THANK YOU to all the MCEC family and churches that took part [in] our renovation project,” Monette said. “Here is a video of the result of this great help you brought us.”
