This was a beautiful 2019 calendar featuring photographs of the sculptures of Timothy P. Schmalz, including the stunning Homeless Jesus shown above at the Papal Office of Charities at Vatican City. Proceeds from the calendar supported the Out of The Cold Homeless shelter in Alliston, Ontario.
For over 25 years, Timothy P. Schmalz has been creating large scale sculptures. He is a figurative artist with his pieces installed worldwide. Some of his most reputed pieces are installed in historical churches in Rome and at the Vatican. Although most of his work is based on a spiritual theme, he also creates large, complex, epic artwork that connects the viewers through design and details that not only touch the viewer on an emotional level, but also allow them to feel somewhat 'part' of the piece. Timothy is based in Kitchener, Ontario and has allowed Sacred Heart Council to showcase photographs of his work, including Homeless Jesus in support of homeless people.
How it worked
The calendar had a limited run of 500. The purchase of each calendar provided an entry in a year-long elimination draw, The draw took place at St. Francis Xavier Church Hall, 72 Queen Street North, Tottenham, Ontario, following 8.30am Mass on the Sunday prior to the month being drawn. The presiding priest made the draw.
The cash pool was $2,000. $3,000 was donated to Out of The Cold.

Out of The Cold Alliston
Alliston's Out of The Cold provides safe, respectful, welcoming overnight accommodation and meals to homeless people in New Tecumseth.
With your support of the Cash Calendar project, we were able to donate $3,000 as they open the shelter for winter.
Without access to a local safe place to rest, a person experiencing homelessness in our area will often resort to accepting a situation that can leave them vulnerable to being taken advantaged of or victimized. If it wasn't for this program in Alliston, the closest options for available shelter would be in Barrie, Newmarket or Toronto.
Each night, up to 12 men, women and youth will use the emergency overnight shelter. It costs $26 to provide a bed and meals for every person. As the program enters into its second winter, the Knights of Columbus Sacred Heart Council in Tottenham has been pleased to provide financial support through the Cash Calendar.
