Young people cycle to help others

Cecilia Tatarnic, Gordon Tatarnic and Theo McLeod rode 30km collectively to raise funds for St. George’s (St. Catharines) refugee sponsorship.

They participated in the Ride for Refuge (, “a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere”.

This past June, St. George’s welcomed a family of eight to start a new life in St. Catharines, reported Rector Martha Tatarnic.

“These three young people were thrilled to be able to contribute to the church’s commitment to welcoming and supporting them,” wrote Martha.
