I am asking for your support for the Bishop’s Action Appeal. I hope that you will be able to join with other people of this Diocese in strengthening an important ministry.
Thanks to your generous response to last year’s appeal, we were able to help the Inuit who are in prison, hospital and day shelters and to move our ministry presence to Epiphany Church in Verdun. We were also able to give financial support to The Territory of the People in the Central Interior of British Columbia to help communities rebuild in the aftermath of the fires that ravaged the area last year.
This year, we are focusing on another important ministry opportunity. We would like to support students in their final year of preparation for ordination. We have talented and dedicated students in the In-ministry Year at the Montreal Diocesan Theological College, but the course load is such that they cannot have part-time jobs.
Can you help us support people preparing for vocation in the diocese?
Please pray for the work of the church and give as generously as you are able. Call our office at 514-843-6577 to donate or use the link provided. Unless you specify otherwise, half of your donation will go to Giving with Grace which helps the ministries of the Anglican Church of Canada make real transformation in real communities here at home and abroad.
With my thanks, and every blessing,
The Rt. Rev. Mary Irwin-Gibson
