It is never too early in a child’s life to instill the importance of supporting their community and helping others. At the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Halifax, they have been putting this belief into action in a beautiful way.
Reflection by Staff Member Mark McIntosh, Community Engagement Coordinator
The winter holidays are truly the most wonderful time of the year. They are filled with excitement, spending time with family and friends, and most importantly, a time to share love, compassion, and kindness. This past December, was my very first holiday season with Phoenix and I experienced, first-hand the kindness and generosity of our community coming together to make the holidays a little bit brighter for our youth and their families.
It was a special and moving moment when we unveiled our new Guardian Wall during the Phoenix Holiday Open house and hung the first two plaques for long-time supporters Canadian Progress Club Halifax Cornwallis & St. Paul’s Homes.
These two groups embody community. Without them Phoenix would not exist as we do today!
Every journey is different, but some have common ground.
Starting February 1st we will share a series of five stories that speak to the journeys of courgeous youth and the staff who have the privilege of working with them. The ‘chapters’ will unfold in a sequence of quotes that will be presented piece by piece on our website as they are posted to Twitter (@PhoenixHFX) over the five months.
