Volunteers are needed to help serve coffee and tea after church each Sunday. All that is required is to leave church before the last hymn, and help serve the coffee and clean the table after. This takes about 15minutes of your time. Please sign the sheet that will be on the coffee table with your availability. Men welcomed! 

Don’t forget, the refrigerator is cleaned out on a regular basis.  Please label your food and drink with your name or the name of your group and the date, so we know how long it has been there.  
A pen and labels are provided.  Thank you for your cooperation.


Uni-Frais is the name chosen for out Mission Strategy Food Project. The response from COCLA, MultiCaf and the NDG Food Depot has been very positive after the first three months of contributions. Anyone who is interested in volunteering, please contact Lex or Ingrid for MultiCaf, Ann for COCLA or Robin for the NDG Food Depot.


“Roofs for the Roofless” is a small organization working in tandem with rural leaders and councils in small communities in Southern India.  Its primary   goal is to restore dignity to the  people of these communities by liberating them from the endless cycle of  poverty, starvation and death.  Through various projects in housing, health care, education, sanitation and water supply which touches the hearts of the people,

          Although the “Roofs” I know you care

          Our little jar remains quite bare

          Ten cents provides a bowl of rice

          Without ten pennies, a dime would be nice

          Your gift of silver would be a loving touch

          Sent to “Roofs” with thanks......so much!

Multicaf - Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a program that delivers meals to individuals at home who are unable to purchase or prepare their own meals. Because they are housebound, many of the recipients are the elderly, and many of the volunteers are also elderly but able-bodied and able to drive automobiles.

The average age of our clients is 80 and above. For this program, a driver and a helper are needed. The driver’s task is to drive from one location to another by following an address chart. The driver also helps the helper place the required meal for delivery in a bag. Once the bag which contains the meal is ready, the helpers are the ones who bring the food to the client on their own.

We need volunteers Monday to Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00pm.

No experience necessary, just a desire to help others.

Drivers must have their own vehicle; we will reimburse you for gas.

Helpers are needed to accompany the driver and deliver the meals.

Please call 514.733.0554 ext.206 for more information.


Grillades Portugaise FOGO, 825, boul. Décarie, VSL

You might enjoy tasting the delicious grilled chicken that is available at COCLA’s new community based restaurant, FOGO –

a venture intended to provide us with succulent Portuguese chicken (with a Peruvian twist) and also to provide work experience for community members.  The chicken is delicious and the cause is worthy.


Thank you for your ongoing financial support,

as well as for your gifts of time and talent.

Our congregation can continue our ministry through your generosity.

(We receive no government or corporate funding

for programing, or, the upkeep of our building.)


Of course, we continue to donate not only non-perishable food, but $1,200 a week for fresh fruits and vegetables to these local food banks:

NDG Food Depot; Multi-Caf; COCLA
