In a world facing economic challenges, acts of kindness and compassion shine even brighter. July marked a remarkable period of generosity as our church community came together to donate over half a metric ton of essential food items to those facing difficult times. Through unwavering dedication and collective efforts, the Cathedral Foodbank team ensured that these donations reached families and individuals in need, serving as a testament to the power of unity and compassion.
A Record-Breaking Milestone
Glory be to God! We are humbled and immensely grateful to announce that during the month of July, an astounding amount of over 500KG of food was generously donated to the cause. This included a variety of vital items such as grains, lentils, split peas, oats, rye, wheat, and long-life food products. These contributions formed the cornerstone of our mission to provide sustenance to those who need it the most.
A Beacon of Hope in Trying Times
As economic uncertainties persist, the importance of community support becomes increasingly evident. The dedicated food bank team worked tirelessly to transform these donations into food boxes, each carrying not just sustenance, but also hope. We are proud to share that the impact of our efforts has been profound. To date a total of 1167 food boxes have been distributed, offering a lifeline to families and individuals grappling with challenging circumstances.
Unity in Action
The spirit of unity and compassion was palpable during our recent distribution days. This remarkable figure to date includes 54 boxes provided over the last distribution weekend in July, building upon the legacy of the previous distributions. It’s a true testament to the boundless generosity of our church community.

We are continually receiving notes of thanks for the support of the church, from those who receive food boxes.
