The Franciscans of Halifax are a non-profit organization registered with the CRA since 2007. In August 2018, the Circle of Care (non-profit distributions of furniture to those in need), which was run by Hector and Margie Muise and served many families for years, closed. The question was: could we continue this outreach serving the less fortunate?
After a long discernment of how the Franciscans could maintain this ministry, Fr. Peter Hanna and Fr. Nathanael Desroches have taken on this ministry and have been operating out of St. Anthony’s parish hall basement, 27 Farrell St. Dartmouth, continuing the mission of Circle of Care. As freely as the donations come in, we distribute them to those in need at no cost.
Please note that the furniture bank is currently temporarily on-hold. We will update this message when it is back up and running.
