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. She gave a great presentation on the impact of the solar panels that are currently housed on the roof of the SSJD Convent in Toronto, ON, for which AFC contributed a grant in 2013. 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.
