CHCH’s Tegan Versolatto joined volunteers at the De Mazenod Door, a door ministry run by St. Patrick Church at St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School. De Mazenod Door was started by Father Tony O’Dell and provides daily meals 365 days a year to the marginalized in Hamilton’s downtown core.
For grade 8 students who help with the program during the school year and through the summer 40X40 Christian Services Hours Program, the exercise has become a lesson in empathy.
“You know it’s tough out there,” said one visitor. “It’s just nice to know a place like this exists in the community.”
The program serves 350 people a day.
