We would like to extend an invitation to all Quebecers to walk with the Nazareth Community, the Honorable Paul Martin, other political dignitaries and representatives from various religious and cultural communities in Montreal for John’s Walk of Hope. This special event will take place in memory of our beloved former Chairman of the Nazareth Community, Father John Walsh. Father John’s dream was to gather diverse religions and cultures and to celebrate inclusivity by walking together around Shaughnessy Village, the home of Nazareth House, Anne’s House and John’s House.
Donations to John’s Walk of Hope can be made here:
Nazareth Community, a non-for-profit organization (Ville Marie district) provides housing with support for individuals who struggle with mental health issues, homelessness, trauma and addictions. Our residents enjoy celebrations, pet therapy, music, student stagiaires, medication distribution and individual treatment plans. This “client driven” approach is supported by a trained, empathetic staff, and assisted by our volunteer Board of Directors. Many of our residents’ “home” before was the streets. We are nondenominational, transgender friendly, with the goal to increase hope and opportunities to mitigate the risk of long-term homelessness.
