Our Parish Office is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 12 noon. Michele Hayes is our Parish Administrator. She is assisted by a parish volunteer receptionist each day. In our reception area we have a comfy corner with easy chairs and a small religious library for you to browse. Our volunteer receptionist answers phones, welcomes visitors and answers your questions.
As the only church in the heart of downtown Nanaimo, we see lots of activity. The office distributes city bus tickets, clothing vouchers and grocery gift cards as they are available. On the 3rd Tuesday of each month we distribute $10 grocery cards to those in need. These cards are made available through the generosity of the parish. Those eligible can receive a card every 2nd month. Our volunteers also provide information on services available in Nanaimo through shelters, the food bank, 12-step programs as well as many others.
We keep the church open for prayer Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 12 noon.
