Holy Family Outreach Ministry
This ministry endeavors to offer a means for people otherwise somewhat disconnected from the community of the church to find a place to belong. Our Homeless Mission team provides a lunch meal to people in downtown Oshawa a couple Saturdays a month. Not only is it a physical nourishment, but they also gather and share spiritual nourishment. Through our Refugee Committee, a dedicated team of parishioners have petitioned and successfully started the process to relocate a family here to Whitby. Please contact the parish office if you would like more information 905-665-6470
St Vincent Palottis's Kitchen
For people in our community living with food insecurity, St. Vincent’s Kitchen provides a full cooked dinner every day of the year at their facility in downtown Oshawa. At a very minimal cost, this restaurant style dining offers a friendly, respectful environment to enjoy a healthy meal. St Vincent Palotti’s Kitchen is located at 51 King St E, Oshawa.
