*Until further notice, during the COVID-19 pandemic situation in Manitoba:* the Lutheran Urban Ministry has temporarily suspended all programs (sit-down community meals, coffee times, sharing circles, men's group, worship services, etc.).

Bagged lunches will be distributed at the door in place of our usual sit-down meal times (time schedule is posted on the side door).

As of September 2, 2020, the wearing of a face mask is mandatory when picking up bagged lunches outside.

The Urban was very fortunate to receive a One-Time Community Grant from the
Winnipeg Foundation for our "Strength within Community" program. 

From October 17, 2019 - January 29, 2020, our Co-ed Sharing Circles, Men's Group
Sharing Circles and Women's Sharing Circles had the expertise of a number
of facilitators who led discussions on many topics and encouraged the sharing of stories.
