INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
The St. Catherine’s Women’s Group wishes to remind all Cathedral members that March 8 (Monday in 2021) is International Women's Day, with the 2021 theme: Choose to Challenge. A challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change. International Women's Day is a global day of recognition celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and girls, while also raising awareness of the work left to be done. Be sure to celebrate the women in your life: mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, grandmothers, great grandmothers, aunts, cousins, partners, associates, colleagues, friends, and neighbours.
 
UPDATE FROM THE OUTREACH COMMITTEE
We have been active in January and February working to meet the great needs in our Community. Deacon Ray has now organized two meals for our Adopt-a-meal programme where we prepare and serve a special meal for one of the shelters run by Shelter Nova Scotia. We are able to give the kitchen staff at the Shelter a well-deserved break and using Ray’s culinary talents provide a very high quality dinner (which I’m sure each of us would enjoy). Deacon Heather organized the first of our six soup kitchens for St. George’s. We’re hoping they’ll be able to move from take-out to sit down dinners. We have also provided one moving out package for residents of homeless shelters who are moving into apartments and a second one will be delivered shortly. We plan to do ten doing the year so are always happy to have volunteer shoppers.

Carmon Stone organized a collection of new children’s winter boots which have been delivered to Parker Street Food and Furniture Bank along with some very good quality clothing. The people at Parker Street were thrilled by the boots and clothing as they have a great demand for such items. Carmen is also starting to collect old eyeglasses which will be donated to CNIB. Heather also reports that is distributing many scarves and coats to those in need thanks in part to her “secret knitters”. These warm scarves are much appreciated.

At our meeting in late January, the Committee drew up a proposed budget for 2021 which has been submitted to the Council for consideration. Our proposed budget includes grants of $12,000 to organizations for whom we are major supporters such as Shelter Nova Scotia and Missions to Seafarers. The remaining $14,300 is for community activities such as the described above. This is an increase of $2,300 over our budget for 2020 to allow us to do more of our Moving out packages and Adopt-a-Meal programmes.

We greatly appreciate all the support we receive from the congregation both financial and in labour. As restrictions get lifted we are looking forward to engaging with congregation members at coffee hours and social events.- Chris Field

BOOTS FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
Just a reminder that the reactivated Shoes for the Shoeless outreach project is asking for contributions of new winter boots for children aged 12 and under. A red collection bin has been placed near the transept entrance leading from the Diocesan Center. Distribution of your gifts will be done in cooperation with the Parker Street Food and Furniture Bank.  A sincere “thank you” to those who have donated so far.
