Today I had a chance to have lunch at Nazareth House, a local centre in downtown Montreal for homeless and marginalized men. Despite it being no more than 10 minutes walk from my office I had never been there before, so I was quite happy to be able to explore this work of charity. Nazareth House is not an official work of the Catholic Church, but it was founded by people of faith (as you could have guessed from the name) and has historically been supported by the Catholic community.
As readers of this blog know, I have been doing a lot of visits lately. The biggest kick I get out of these visits is the little discoveries one makes. In this case, I had a chance to meet Robert, one of the residents of Nazareth House, who it turns out is a fantastic artist (see this online gallery).
Given the limits on my time I am not sure what sort of association I will be able to have with Nazareth House in any formal sort of way, but I am delighted to see the work they are doing and I hope to be back again soon.
