    Winter Street Patrol "Into the Cold"

    3:30 pm-7:00 pm
    March 27, 2022


    Winter Street Patrol “Into the Cold” is a program of St. Patrick’s Church – Out of the Cold Program, and organized by Ignite Young Adult Ministry based at 139 McCaul Street in downtown Toronto.  As COVID-19 has prevented our doors from being opened to our sisters and brothers who are in need in the downtown core, we are taking it to the streets with food, clothing, hot beverage, emergency aid and referral information.

    Through your participation in the program, you, along with other volunteers on a given evening will bring an EMPTY backpack, and together with our team, prepare lunch bags on-site to carry in your backpack and walk to areas where our help is needed.  Please bring your presto card in case by chance we take public transit to a site.

    Please come prepared with an EMPTY backpack to carry the lunch bags that you will prepare here, your personal non-medical mask, sanitizer, and be sure to dress according to the weather conditions.  Volunteers are asked to gather at the Church Hall – Entrance at 139 McCaul Street by 3:30pm to allow time to prepare the lunch bags.  Following an introduction to our night and gathering prayer, the group will leave from St. Patrick’s.  Please arrive on time.  At the conclusion of the evening (up until 7pm), volunteers can leave from where they are enroute.


    • Each participant is to register using the link below.
    • If you are looking to help on more than one day, please register for each date individually.
    • Registration is required to allow for proper planning of each night and facilitate a record of contact tracing for COVID-19.  COVID Vaccination is not required for casual volunteers.
    • Registration is closed on Wednesday prior to a given Sunday, or when the group reaches the maximum of participants (10 casual volunteers)


    NOTE: If today’s date is not available on the Registration Portal, please note that this particular week is now FULL.

    THINKfast 2022 - For Young Adults!

    10:00 am-7:00 pm
    April 2, 2022

    THINKfast 2022:  “People & Planet First”

    A justice experience for young adults (18-39)

    Saturday April 2, 2022     10 am – 7 pm     (in-person gathering)

    St. Patrick’s Church Hall       139 McCaul Street, Toronto, ON

    Inviting young adults (age 18-39) to join in a 24-hour fast to reflect and explore important issues facing our world today.

    Your fast will begin on your own Friday April 1, and all participants will gather together for the in-person gathering on Saturday April 2.

    Together, we will explore the theme of this year’s Development & Peace Campaign, “People & Planet First”.  Through input, discussion, prayer and reflection, you will learn about the call and responsibility to care for the wounded earth, and the impact that we have made on the human community and all of creation.  We will explore other key issues of responsibility and accountability, as well as how we as Catholics and people of faith are invited to stand in solidarity, facing these issues in our human family today.

    Our day will end with Sunday Mass and Supper.

    To support the work of Development & Peace (Caritas Canada) and the ShareLent 2022 Campaign, participants of this THINKfast will raise money through pledges of support for their participation in the 24-hour fast.  For more information about Development & Peace, please visit their website:
