Faith and Action in the Community: it's as wide as your imagination
The “St. Matthias and Friends” group sponsored an immigrant family from Syria (they’re settling in beautifully, thanks!) and have recently sponsored another newcomer to Canada, also from Syria.
The Christ Church Cathedral Preschool occupies one of our buildings and their wonderful students also spend time playing on our grounds. We've also held our own vacation bible camp, also known as "All God's Critters."
We host the monthly Threshold Housing bottle drive and the Fairfield recycling project – and have our own monthly (or most-monthly) "Attic Treasure Sales" in the church building. We rent our buildings to community groups. We love music and welcome opportunities to host concerts or other performances.
Adjacent to St. Matthias is Rogers Court, 24 unit low income seniors housing. Members of the board are all St. Matthias parishioners.
Sometimes, "community" involves travel. Please nourish your spirit by reading about the wonderful work being done to help families in Rwanda. https://www.stmatthiasvictoria.ca/pages/supporting-families-in-rwanda
