How? Now that is the question. How to raise funds for the Anglican Healing Fund?
Maybe your parish has already done a fundraiser that could be directed, in whole or in part, to the Anglican Healing Fund. Possibly you have an upcoming fundraiser that could benefit the Anglican Healing Fund. Put on your thinking caps and plan a way for your parish / church to bring in funds for the Anglican Healing Fund. Of course, individual contributions are always welcome.
The Anglican Healing Fund is a special Fund that offers grants to encourage and initiate programs to help educate and heal the damage caused by Indian residential schools. The Fund has supported community-based programs for healing, including support for the recovery of language, culture and spiritual practices consistent with Indigenous identities and traditions.
However, the Anglican Healing Fund is depleted and needs your support.
Archbishop Fred has put out an appeal to Anglicans and the dioceses to give prayerful thought as to how to replenish this Fund, one that responds specifically to the Calls for Action arising from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report. Archbishop Ron spoke of this initiative for our Diocese at Synod and every parish received at Synod a brief overview of the Anglican Healing Fund and the plan for a special Choral Evensong of Thanksgiving to honour and bless the contributions that we raise in our Diocese for the Anglican Healing Fund.
So, save the date for the Choral Evensong at the Cathedral Church of All Saints– Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 4:00 pm, with an Open House Reception in the Great Hall of the ADC starting at 2:00 pm. Parking is available at the College Street Lot.
