epiphany|verdun continues to build awareness in the community of Verdun.
There is a reciprocal need to receive both physical and spiritual nourishment. Many who come for a meal at our Thursday lunch program or have participated in our Wednesday afternoon creative classes also come out on a Sunday morning to give thanks. From literacy, a community garden, creative expressions in art, cinéma, and music, we are reaching out. Discussions are in the works for educational seminars to provide for open discussion in order to bring us collectively into a greater awareness for why we exist and do what we do.
Now, what can you do? If you would like to be a part of epiphany|verdun, come out and say hello. And if you would like to encourage and sustain us financially now and into the future, please send us your gift or give online now by clicking on the image link.

espace verte|epiphany We have created a community garden adjacent to and runs the full length of our church building. We have planted vegetables to be used in our kitchen or to be given away to local food banks such a MANA-Verdun. And throughout as though a reflection of our beautiful windows we also planted flowers. A beautiful oasis in a city of concrete and brick. Help support this ministry with a donation today to espace verte|epiphany.
building|epiphany Our red brick building is beautiful and safe. However it needs regular upkeep if we want to continue everything we are called to do in Verdun. This year we have an ongoing major investment of roughly $100,000 to restore our roof and walls. Please contribute to building|epiphany for these critical renovations.
wolfpack|epiphany Wolfpack is a street initiative of Al Harrington. Beginning with three nights a week,
Al and his team of volunteers walk the streets of Montréal, visiting the parks of the city to find those living in the shadows. They offer some food and supply the basic needs to our most vulnerable street people. We are already seeing great healing with the people who live in the shadows simply by wolfpack being kind and giving a sandwich, a blanket, a smile and a listening ear. Help support this work so the teams will have enough to meet the needs of the street 7 nights a week. Donate online to wolfpack|epiphany.
