Congratulations to Father Donato on his 25th year of the priesthood. We, from Canada, were not there physically at your celebration on September 10th but we were definitely there with you in spirit!
In 2023, a new program was implemented to feed hundreds of street children, some as young as 5 years of age.They receive one cup of beans and one cup of rice three times a week.

The 2023 very successful Hope of St. Joseph yard sale was held and took in over $24,000, which includes the sale of merchandise over the 6 days of the sale as well as items sold during the 2 weeks prior to the sale while venues were being set up, donations that were made by those who didn’t want to buy anything but wanted to make a donation instead, the Feed the Street Kids donation jars at the cash tent and the hot dog sales.
It took an army to make the sale happen and gratitude is in order. So a great big thank you goes out to:those who helped in so many different ways and those who shopped and donated. A special mention to Game Gear Attire for their donation of over $5000 of clothing.
Last but not least, to Marc and Mary, Thank you for all that you do for “God’s yard sale”. You deserve a good long rest!!!
