  1. Hello, Do you have any kind of group for mothers? I have a friend with a toddler near you in Ontario that is looking for a group of mothers to visit with that are nonjudgemental or her past. She is a single mother going to school full time, trying her best to provide for her little one and has not been able to find a place where she fits in.

    1. Hello Stacey. If your friend wants to talk, I suggest that we bring the matter up to the women in the congregation. Queen East meets at 947 Queen and Carlaw, 11 am Sunday morning. I look forward to introducing your friend to the women of Queen East. Rafael
