Ornaments of Hope

The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is the Anglican Church of Canada’s agency for sustainable development, relief, refugees, and global justice. With the support of Anglican parishes across Canada, PWRDF makes financial and human resources available to support partners’ initiatives and to promote knowledgeable actions of solidarity at home and around the world.

PWRDF strives to be a part of the outreach ministry of every Canadian Anglican parish and an expression for all Anglicans of their baptismal covenant to strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every human being.

Each year, PWRDF suggests ways in which we can give a gift of hope by supporting their projects. This year, the Eco Justice group is inviting our parish to raise at least $400 towards
the cost of housing for a suicide prevention volunteer in a first nations community. Suicide rates among Indigenous youth are up to seven times higher than the national average. Each Sunday
in Advent, you are invited to leave your contribution in the light green envelopes provided {tax receipts will be issued} and then place an ornament on the small Christmas tree. Let’s see our tree blossom with gifts of hope.
