Community Life

Opportunities Committee Ministry

The Opportunities Committee connects the Parish with the wider community. It focuses on the neighbourhoods of the parish (St James Town, Cabbagetown, the Village, and Rosedale) as well as our neighbours across the GTA and beyond. With a particular focus on social justice and community outreach, the Opportunities Committee allows any member of the parish to bring ideas for short to long-term projects and events so that the Committee may welcome, discern, and action new initiatives. Meetings occur monthly, and all are welcome to come with or to hear and help us discern new ideas.

Our social justice focus for 2018/2019 is on poverty and particularly food security and affordable housing, with a long term commitment to reconciliation work and building connections with the indigenous peoples living in Toronto.
