Syrian Family

We are excited to report that the newcomer family from Syria that Lourdes sponsored - the Mhameeds - have arrived safe and sound in Toronto. There was a happy meeting at Toronto Pearson Airport on Tuesday afternoon between the family and a volunteer contingent from Lourdes.

The Mhameeds (father, mother, daughter age 20, and three sons 18, 15 and 6) are in good spirits, even though they had to spend two nights in a hotel before moving to their permanent apartment in St Jamestown on Thursday. Some of the highlights so far have included a lunch with volunteers of chicken shawarma followed by homemade chocolate brownies for dessert!

Now begins the work of helping them orient to life in Canada. We do hope to organize a barbeque to introduce them to the parish soon. We thank all of the volunteers and donors for their continued support over the last two years and especially in the last couple of weeks.

If you have any questions or if you would like to hear more about ways to be involved, please email Bill Hatch, Social Outreach Coordinator at outreach@ourladyoflourdes.ca or contact the parish office at 416-924-6257.
