Dear Incumbent, Wardens and Treasurer
It has been a difficult year – full of loss, uncertainty and change. We know the power of standing together and long for a time when we can be together to worship, pray, laugh and delight in each other’s company. Yet, even in this time of disruption, the seasons change, fields are planted, relationships are tended and hope can grow. Our Anglican Grow Hope initiative continues and you are invited to participate.
The Reverend Chris Lea and his family have agreed to plant 15 acres of canola this spring. His sister Nancy will also raise a calf for auction. The net proceeds from this crop and from the calf will go to the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) account at the Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFGB). The Government of Canada then matches those funds 3 or 4:1 when they are spent to address hunger among the most vulnerable in our world.
