PrayerWorks Common is a joint community ministry of St. Faith Anglican Church and St. Stephen the Martyr in Edmonton, AB. During the winter months they serve approximately 250 meals per week to handicapped people, the working poor and those in inadequate housing. An AFC grant allowed them to replace two stoves in their kitchen in order to meet the increased usage need and adequately serve the spiritual, physical and social needs of the community.
DID YOU KNOW that in 1956 General Synod established a Foundation to receive donations for the purpose of disbursing financial assistance across the country. It was also agreed that every parish give a $50 donation every year to support their Foundation.
Annual donations from every parish make it possible for AFC to give grants to parishes and people across Canada. Count your parish in with $50 in 2015. Speak to your church wardens to donate.
AFC has contributed to the creation of a Braille version of the Common Praise hymnbook, initiated by a parishioner with limited vision at St. John's Anglican Church, South March, Kanata, ON. The transcription will encompass seven volumes and will be available for purchase on demand through Tactile Vision Graphics in Ottawa, ON. AFC is proud to be a part of bringing this resource to those in need across Canada.
The Foundation Staff and Board of Directors wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!
AFC was proud to support Liturgy Canada with a grant to transition from print to online interactive publishing and archiving. John Hill, Chair of Liturgy Canada, wrote, "We profoundly thank the Foundation for enabling this development, and we pray that your important work in fostering other such initiatives will continue to bless and enrich the Church."
