This week is National Volunteer Week in Canada, running from April 15th to 21st and we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge and recognize the amazing contributions of the volunteers at St. Patrick’s Home.

Last year, our outstanding volunteers gave a whopping 16,549 hours of service! Isn’t that amazing? Volunteers are at the heart of our Home. They help out at special events, porter residents to mass, the hair salon and other activities, run Paddy’s Place coffee shop, provide friendly visits, assist with pastoral care, and so much more. We really couldn’t do what we do without them.

To all of our volunteers, thank you! You make our residents’ lives brighter.
