Serving as the rector of a small remote Anglican parish in northern Canada is one of my life’s great joys and challenges. Among these challenges is maintaining our buildings. We have a small thrift store, a church building, and a rectory; all of which have needed work. The financial support we have received from the Anglican Foundation has been vital to the sustained viability of this crucial northern ministry.
