St. Hildegard’s Sanctuary is deeply grateful to the Anglican Foundation for supporting innovative ministry and enabling projects we could not have otherwise undertaken. The “All Are Welcome’ project creates and shares liturgical resources for use by congregations who wish to be trauma-sensitive.

The “Feather Dance” project is a hands-on work of reconciliation through an Indigenous-led, Indigenous-settler collaboration in textile art. Most heartening is the joyful manner in which the Foundation has partnered with these projects, coupling generosity with genuine interest and delight in the work.
