St. Thomas Anglican grateful for leadership of Dianne Lambert

St. Thomas Anglican Church in Morden has been blessed with the ministry Dianne Lambert has offered as our parish rep for Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund. Last year, Dianne suggested to the Vestry that we focus on a particular ministry need highlighted by PWRDF and have donations go to that for three months unless otherwise designated. The Vestry agreed and this has been very successful. On Oct. 10 she was very pleased to announce at the beginning of our worship that the parish of St. Thomas had donated $1100.00 to our latest project, the Solar Suitcases for the Light for Every Birth Project and the government (Global Canada) would be matching it. Our lay worship leader, Catherine Evenson, then announced, “Coincidentally, our first hymn is “Let There Be Light!”

At our Vestry meeting on Oct 18, we have chosen another PWRDF project for October – December. Our donations will go towards building a shallow well with a hand pump for the people of Kenya. One well will cost $1,200 and will provide clean water for rural communities in Kenya to improve health, reduce travel time to fetch water and keep more girls in school. The drought in Morden this year has reminded us of the importance of water and we feel this would be a timely project for us to support. Last year St. Thomas wanted to support Indigenous Ministry in Canada and chose the Indigenous Midwife Program.

St. Thomas is very grateful for the wise and enthusiastic leadership of Dianne Lambert in her many ministries, but particularly as our PWRDF representative.
