For the third year in a row, St. Michael and All Angels on St. Clair Avenue West in Toronto took part in the Coldest Night of the Year on Feb. 24, raising more than $30,000 for its outreach ministry, which includes a weekly foodbank and an Out of the Cold lunch program, serving over 300 members of the community who are struggling. Church members and their friends, at right, had their choice between a 2 km or a 5 km fundraising walk, followed by a meal in the parish hall that was prepared, for the most part, by two women from Afghanistan whom the church sponsored to come to Canada.
