PROGRAMMING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

All of us at Fontbonne Ministries are very aware of the many needs our programs meet for a diverse range of participants every day.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it has become necessary to evaluate how and when our programs are delivered to ensure the safety of those we serve, our volunteers and our staff.  After consultation with our leadership, colleague agencies providing similar services, and following the guidelines provided by Toronto Public Health and the Ontario Ministry of Health, we are announcing these program cancellations, effective immediately and in effect until further notice.

Village Mosaic – adapted for digital platforms, click here for more information.
Studio on the Hill – closed.
Faith Connections – adapted for digital platforms.
In Good Company – no in-person visiting; contact will be by telephone only.
Mustard Seed – all programming cancelled. Take out lunch service available Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11:30am to 1pm.
Volunteer Appreciation Event – The Volunteer Appreciation event scheduled for April 26 has been cancelled. Volunteers will be celebrated by each ministry individually when regular programming resumes.

Programs which are still operating on a modified basis may be cancelled or closed at any time should directives from public health or other government agencies mandate.

Our thanks to the staff and volunteers of Faith Connections, Mustard Seed, In Good Company, Studio on the Hill, and Village Mosaic for their dedication and outreach to their communities in these challenging times, and for continuing to do the ordinary with extraordinary care.

We will update this information as and when the situation changes.  We thank you for your patience, and hope to have all our programs operating once again in the near future.

"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity will not survive." (The Dalai Lama)

You already know Virginia, one of our friends from Toronto East Rotary Club. With her is Michael, a longtime friend and guest of Mustard Seed who supports the community by inviting those in need to our lunch program.

Virginia stopped by with two boxes of sandwiches for our lunch guests today.

Thank you to Virginia and her fellow Rotarians for their generosity, and to Michael for being a long-time member of the Mustard Seed family.

"Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people." (Jim Rohn)

Meet one of our many reasons -- John, from Pusateri's. He came to Mustard Seed this morning with a smile and 90 sandwiches, salads and desserts for our lunch service this weekend.

Thank you John -- and Pusateri's -- for sharing with, and caring for, our community.
