breakfast and lunch to those in need 365 days a year. On average, 500 meals are served each
day, with about 40 per cent of those meals going to children. (Photo: Kiply Lukan Yaworski)

Holy Family parish in Saskatoon has committed to a new vision that involves local and international outreach. The Prairie Messenger's Kiply Lukan Yaworski reports:
"Making a difference in our world" was one of three priorities identified in a parish visioning process launched when the Holy Family Parish moved into their new cathedral home just over a year ago, explains cathedral administrator Pat Clarke.

Within that particular priority, there are two focuses: making a difference in the local community, and making a difference beyond our borders. In terms of international outreach, connection and mission, the parish is working to establish a relationship with Bunda diocese in Tanzania, he says.

"What was most important to us was that making a difference in our world was not just about raising funds, giving cash and wiping our hands," says Tumback. "But it is also about relationships."
