Christmas Dinner at St John the Compassionate Mission

St John the Compassionate Mission provide a special meal to those without a place to go on Christmas. The generosity of the community has been great in the past, and really appreciated by those who join the mission for this special meal. The mission tries to make this meal as much like a family Christmas dinner as possible. What makes the difference is the addition of the “extras” as they are what encourages people to relax and stay and talk to each other. If you are able, please consider donating to the mission this year.
