You do not need to get out of your car.  Please drive up the hill, around the church and stop at the hall entrance.  A runner will accept your offerings, donations and retrieve your shopping cards for you.  Donations to Beacon House Food Bank are also welcome.


The Catholic Diocese has opened its doors to the former St. Elizabeth Seton Church at 125 Metropolitan Avenue to Beacon House for the purposes of providing  emergency shelter for the homeless of our communities. Volunteers and staff from the Sackville Area Warming Centre and Beacon House have already been working, setting things up and starting to welcome people over the last couple of days to come in from the cold.  More volunteers will be needed to help with this worthwhile endeavour.
We must thank our blessings for this wonderful opportunity to provide emergency shelter and to help the needy among us, in the caring and compassionate manner for which Beacon House is so well known. Thank you for your support with this and please visit the site whenever you have the time.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Ellen for an application form. or 902-817-8457
