Faith and Action in the Community: it's as wide as your imagination
The “St. Matthias and Friends” group has now embraced its sponsorship role three times. We first welcomed an immigrant family from Syria (the parents are now proud Canadian citizens); then welcomed a single individual from Iraq, and in spring 2022, greeted another newcomer, also from Syria.
The Christ Church Cathedral Preschool occupies one of our buildings and their delightful students also spend time playing on our grounds.
We rent our buildings to community groups. We love music and welcome opportunities to host concerts or other performances. If you have an idea, let us know and send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org . We welcome all ideas and will be pleased to discuss them to see how we might collaborate!
Adjacent to St. Matthias is Rogers Court, 24 units of 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
