It was with great sadness when folks of the Parish of St. Oswald, Port Kells heard of the death of a homeless man in Abbotsford during the bitterly cold weather of December, 2021. How could this happen? And was there anything we could do? Well…yes. We filled the font with colourful blankets, about 50 toques, many scarves, a couple of dozen pairs of gloves and many pairs of warm socks. One of St. Oswald's parishioners is delivering the items to a ‘store’ in Langley, where people can come in and 'shop' for what they need.
