I would like to share with you a short video message about our common work of setting a just and inclusive table. I invite you to take a moment to watch it and share it with your family, friends and community. You are welcome to post it on Facebook and Twitter, show it in church and/or share it through your e-lists.
The video also highlights some of the struggles facing migrant workers, such as those whose labours contribute to bringing food to our tables. In response to the video, we invite you to join our action for migrant workers. Contact your Member of Parliament and the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship and urge Canada to move towards permanent residency for migrant workers on arrival, leaving no one behind.
We are always deeply grateful for your support—in your action and with your donations.
In solidarity and hope,
Jennifer Henry, Executive Director KAIROS
I am sending a notice to Anglican Church members for Jennifer Spencer. Jennifer is a member of the All Saints Anglican Church in Collingwood who was stricken with a devastating disease called ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. She has become bed ridden, wheel chair bound and has no ability to communicate lately.
Recently the March of Dimes is willing to grant her $15,000 to help pay for equipment and renovations for her to be able to leave the house. She is about $15,000 short to complete the project and they say they need to know how the other funds will be supplied. The offer stands till October 12, 2018 in which time the grant will be removed. Her church created a charity for her last year a raised about $6800 to help her with costs and home care products and additional expenses.
If you could make it known to the membership that they could donate through her church charity that was initiated by Reverend Doug Michael’s. There was a GoFundMe site that was started but was unable to generate much interest.
The GoFundMe site is; GoFundMe.com/2bmk3xg . This site shows more information and Reverend Doug Michaels letter.
I am not a facebook person but it would help her if you could send this message to facebook or church members to help her achieve her goal by individual donations or a collection.

If you have taken any good quality photographs of one of our church events or of the church itself, or have an article of interest that you would like to share with us, with your permission, we would love to put them on our new website! The article and/or picture needs to be emailed to the church at email@example.com or can be dropped off at the office during office hours. We really appreciate your support with this.
There is an urgent need to add singers to our choir. You do not have to be able to read music, you just have to enjoy singing. A number of members learn their parts by rote at rehearsals. This method of learning parts is very common in many church choirs. We now rehearse Friday afternoons at 1:00 pm, which avoids evening rehearsals. Extra rehearsals, to firm up parts for special events, are sometimes required. We need sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. Come out and give it a try! We’re a fun bunch!
