To spread its spirit of giving to the neighbourhood, St. Martin in-the-Fields, Toronto has installed a Blessing Box and Little Library on its property, in a spot easily accessible to the community. The Blessing Box contains non-perishable food items, common household items and, for the winter season, hats, mittens, gloves and warm socks for those in need. The Sunday School has decorated magnets that are affixed to the box and free for anyone to take, containing the church’s contact information as well as the children’s art. The installation has been sponsored by the parish’s Missional Team, but all parishioners are encouraged to bring donations. The Blessing Box was blessed by Bishop Jenny Andison on a visit to St. Martin’s in December.
