The Rev. Mother Sister Elizabeth Ann of the Sisters of Saint John the Divine was a guest presenter at the November meeting of the AFC Board of Directors.

The AFC Board loved hearing about the great work being done at SSJD, and sent Sr. Elizabeth Ann home with a Hope Bear and chocolate treats as thanks.
The permanent installation of "Whatsoever You Do" by Tim Schmalz, partially supported by AFC, was blessed and dedicated at St. Stephen-in-the-Fields, Toronto, ON. AFC Board Member Sally Armour Wotton attended the celebration.
