When Moncton Community Chaplaincy was born, we were called the “Little Lighthouse”, offering hope and light to those lost in the darkness of their situations. We developed programs and joined with other venerable institutions to inspire hope, help protect the community, and continue our journey of supporting ex-offenders as they reintegrate back into the community after release.

Since then, our building has become synonymous with faith, charity, and the belief that all people deserve their best chance for rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

Enter the Big Lighthouse Project: part housing solution, part location for our programs, we have broken ground on this new symbol for safety, community, and belief that no person is disposable.


20 unit building, with 9 1-bedroom units and 11 bachelor apartments with 24 hour supervision on site.




This population also needs stable housing, basic needs supported, access to a variety of community services, & plain ordinary friendships & mentors. The successful support and reintegration initiatives serve everyone.

The economy needs productive workers; these ex-offenders need work – they need to be given a chance to be employed and to have hope. The circles of support & accountability is one program that seeks to provide these needed services.

My previous work experience in crime prevention, my own PhD research with children & youth at-risk, & my years of volunteering as a community mentor for young offenders & older ex-offenders that some of the best things one can do to support both the personal growth & thriving of the ex/offender & to prevent crime is to help such vulnerable populations to reintegrate healthily into society.

From having served on the Board of Directors for a few years, and knowing the hearts of the staff and board members, it is my pleasure to provide my personal perspective on the value of the work of the Chaplaincy program in the Greater Moncton area. I highly recommend involvement as a volunteer or financial contributor to this worthy, nonprofit organization that seeks to restore hope & life to those whose hope & life has been compromised.
