THE ANGELS OF MERCY

The Angels of Mercy is a parish organization which operates from November to May providing a healthy meal and warm clothing to the homeless people of Montreal. We are in need of a bookkeeper, a treasurer and an assistant to the Director. These are not time-consuming positions. Please consider becoming a part of this wonderful ministry and joining us in making a difference in the lives of our homeless brothers and sisters, by being the hands and feet of Jesus. Contact Catherine at 514-684-1606 or Christine at 514-626-8611.
