the ability to bake

In Toronto there is a mission that runs a bakery which employs, among others, persons with disability, as well and persons who have been through difficulty and hardships, such as drug addiction. Here is an article  from the Toronto online edition of The Star by staff reporter Paola Loriggio:St. John’s Bakers Knead a New Life” http://www.thestar.com/article/557669

And here is the website of the St. John the Compassionate Mission: http://www.stjohnsmission.org/ for your perusal.

Here’s the bakery page: http://www.stjohnsbakery.com/

And here is their page of photos from their mission: http://www.stjohnsmission.org/Photographs.html

This is one of the Focus North America http://www.focusnorthamerica.org/ missions, and certainly a model for what the Orthodox Church could be doing in our cities in North America if we would prayerfully set our hearts and minds to it.
