Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission: The TRC will hold its final event over four days, beginning Sunday, May 31. Our Primate, ++Fred and National Indigenous Bishop, +Mark have written an important letter detailing the Anglican Church of Canada’s response to the conclusion of the TRC, called “22 Days Of Prayer and Renewal”. Please see the letter posted in the Algoma Room for more information.

 

Algoma Anglican/Anglican Journal Updates: It’s that time of year again. The Circulation department of the Anglican Journal recently sent us a copy of their subscription list to be updated. If you are currently receiving the Anglican Journal and Algoma Anglican, and wish to cancel your subscription, if you want to begin a subscription, or if you have moved in the last year, please speak to Marion Collinson.

 

Elevate Sudbury: “Love in Motion”, has projects planned by churches and community in most of our Greater Sudbury’s twelve Wards during the week of May 17-23.   All are invited to Celebrate Elevate on Sunday, May 24th, 2015, from 6-8:00 pm at the Glad Tidings Church Auditorium. Videography of the projects will be featured.  For full information: www.elevatesudbury.com

Our ward project will again be working together with the Louis Street Community Association, this time to put on a free community yard sale, as well as help them with planting their community gardens. Donations for the yard sale are being accepted and can be dropped off either at 159 Louis Street (please call Elizabeth at 705-988-4730 to arrange a time), or, if more convenient, at 177 Claudia Court (please call Rachel at 705-690-1192 to arrange a time). If you are available to volunteer on May 23, please get in touch with Rachel Perry (rprachelperry@gmail.com or 705-690-1192).

 

Primates World Relief and Development Fund: is responding to the Nepal earthquake through the ACT Alliance and its members.

A second earthquake measuring 7.4 struck north-east of Kathmandu on May12 and has caused an increase in landslides. At least 64 people were killed and 2,000 people injured. This figure is likely to rise as rescue services gain access to those affected.

ACT member Lutheran World Federation (LWF) Nepal is sending an assessment team to the affected districts of Dolakha, Rasuwa and Sidhupalchowk, to identify the level of damage and emergency needs. More than 8,000 people died in the initial quake.

Thanks to the generosity of concerned Anglicans and others, PWRDF has collected $167,937 for Nepal Earthquake Relief to date.  These gifts will be matched by the Canadian government, doubling their impact.

There is still time: All donations to PWRDF between April 25 and May 25, 2015 for the Nepal earthquake relief efforts will be matched, dollar for dollar, by the Government of Canada into their Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund, which will be used to provide humanitarian relief.

 

The Catholic Diocese: invites all Greater Sudburians to a free Indigenous celebration, Saturday, May 23, 5:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Fielding Park in Walden. The intent is for all to learn, through this intercultural event, the contributions of our Indigenous peoples and to experience their unique expressions of spirituality.
