Please accept my sincere thanks and deep appreciation for your hospitality and the warm welcome that you extended during my time in Toronto. I so enjoyed spending last week touring, learning, and meeting many of you.
In order to familiarize myself with the North American Province, around the time of the Fusion, I read about the programs and services in both Toronto and Hamilton. However, to actually witness what you do, in person, was just so inspiring! Phenomenal work is being done each day at the Centre and beyond, to serve those in need throughout the community. Good Shepherd has such a renowned presence, and that speaks volumes of the compassion and diligence of the coworkers that so deeply impact the lives of clients and families. The coworkers of Good Shepherd-Toronto, both front-line and administrative, alike, are a truly wonderful expression of hospitality and compassion. I believe that Emily (Relief Coworker) captured it well when she said “no part is too small” – each of us serves as a caretaker of the sacred Mission and treasured Values that guide what we do.
There were many highlights from my time spent with you: visiting the programs (Drop-in, DARE), sharing meals and laughter together, our reflective focus group discussion, and our informal conversations all helped to paint a picture of how you put hospitality into practice, which left me feeling all the more connected to you.
Although our centers are separated by many miles, and while the populations that we serve may differ, we are united in our desire to “do good for ourselves by doing good for others”. May the good work continue in Toronto, New Jersey, and beyond.
With admiration and in hospitality,
