Paul’s Place Community Kitchen
Outreach is an important part of community life at St. Catherine’s. If you were to appear at the church on a Wednesday, you would see a committed group of volunteers from the church and the surrounding area come together to facilitate Paul’s Place Community Kitchen. Serving a warm meal with a smile has helped many people in our community for many years and as a result the kitchen has grown. Others prepare coffee and hot chocolate for those who come to wait for the opening of the food bank, a satellite Share Food Bank out of Port Moody, which is held in the church at the same time as the soup kitchen.
Community is about building relationships and sharing opinions and ideas. The Book Group gets together one evening a month from September to June to have a discussion about each book they read. Whether it be fact or fiction, a good read is always worthwhile.
The men’s group gets together for breakfast once a month to socialize and occasionally organize or help out with a parish event.
