Although it has been hard on everyone, the pandemic has helped us appreciate our need for human contact. Knowing that the holidays will be very different this year, we need to find new ways of connecting with our loved ones. 

That’s why we’re calling on our community and its friends to participate in the GivingTuesday: A Time to Reconnect fundraising campaign. Just in time for the holiday season, the campaign focuses on sharing and the importance of reconnecting with loved ones during this special time. It’s an opportunity to raise the spirits of friends and family while helping ensure the future of our beloved Morrin Centre. That means continuing to offer a wide range of cultural activities and services, including the Imagination Writers’ Festival, our magnificent 19th-century library and excellent educational programming for youth.

In addition to helping maintain a vibrant part of our history, you can spoil those closest to your heart.


While we wait for festive gatherings to return, you can have a meal delivered to the home of someone dear to you. Whether it’s for a family feast, an online get-together or just to show someone you’re thinking of them, these four-course gourmet meals for two are sure to meet your culinary expectations. With more than 25 years of catering experience, Le Groupe Je Reçois is offering its delectable Marché à la Carte menu, which combines the best options from the Je Reçois Traiteur, Deux Gourmandes and Vitalité catering services. A perfect combination of tastes, right in the comfort of your dining room.
