MORE – Mission Schools are getting rave reviews! Close to 470 people attended Module #1. You and your parish team don’t want to miss the next one! MORE offers an exciting opportunity for us to learn together how to be mission-focused and take practical steps to respond to God’s leading for the future and making of new disciples.
    Module #2, Focus on More, explores helpful, positive approaches to resistance and challenges to being more missional. The FREE workshop is engaging for lay and clergy participants - lots of discussion and opportunity to ask questions.
    MORE is based on God’s desire to give the world MORE of what it really needs – hope, love, and freedom. MORE is not a program, but a way of seeing ourselves and our church transformed so we can grow!

250 for 250
The Capital Campaign
A Work Update

In 2017, $96,500 will have been spent, on the following:
  • All the eavestrough on both the church-building and the hall were replaced. The plan was to only do the church-building this year but due to the availability of the contractor we decided to have the hall done as well ($35,000). While replacing the eavestrough, two small sections of fascia were rotten and replaced ($2,500). 
  • The front entrance of the hall was repaired ($32,000) and a stone hardening coating will be applied in the spring of 2018. 
  • Two abutments were repaired at the front of the church-building ($20,000). 
  • The flashing and caps on all the chimneys were done ($7,000). 
Your continued support of the 250 for 250 Capital Campaign is greatly appreciated. Individual donors will be receiving a pledge update statement in late October showing the status of their original pledges. If you have any questions about the status of your pledge or if your personal circumstances have changed, then please contact the Parish Office and revisions can be made to the original pledge amounts.

PWRDF responds to Irma 
PWRDF responds to Irma with $40,000 for Cuba and Haiti 
    The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund has announced an initial grant of $40,000 for immediate response to Hurricane Irma in Cuba and Haiti. 
    PWRDF will allocate $20,000 for the upcoming ACT appeal for Cuba, $10,000 for the Episcopal Church of Cuba and $10,000 to support the rapid response fund request for Haiti by the ACT Alliance forum there. The ACT Alliance members and the Episcopal Church of Cuba are continuing to do their assessments, and consult with the local government agencies and other stakeholders. 
    While PWRDF awaits further details, donations will also be accepted to help recovery efforts in Mexico, where earthquakes have rocked the nation in recent days. 
    To donate to Hurricane Irma recovery efforts, please write “Hurricane Irma” on your cheque or donate online and choose Hurricane Irma from the Canada Helps drop down menu. pwrdf.org 

PWRDF – Monitoring Recovery in Mexico 
On the anniversary of the 1985 earthquake that devastated Mexico City, the city again is reeling from a 7.1 magnitude quake that hit Tuesday afternoon. 
    The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is monitoring the situation and offers continued prayers to survivors as they grapple with the work of digging out and restoring the necessities of life. Authorities estimate 40% of the city and 60% of nearby Morelos state are without electricity. The death toll has been reported at 217; 44 buildings in Mexico City have toppled. 
    PWRDF will announce when a specific appeal has been launched for Mexico, but in the meantime, those wishing to donate to relief efforts through PWRDF may do so by writing “emergency relief” on their cheques or choosing “emergency relief” from the drop down menu on our Canada Helps page.
