St. Simon and St. Jude Parish’s Christmas hamper program received a $250 boost from the Community of Tignish recently. Fr. Brendon Gallant, center, accepts the contribution, which will support one area family at Christmas, from Tignish Village chairman Allan McInnis, left, and finance chair Ed Gallant.
The municipal council in Tignish is supporting the St. Simon and St. Jude Roman Catholic parish's Christmas Hamper Program. The Tignish Village Council made a $250 donation to the hamper program, enough to support one family in the predominantly Catholic cummunity at Chrismas. It will help supply food and Christmas gifts for all members of the family.
