It is important to recognize and encourage the time, talent, and treasure contributions that many members of St. John’s make to outreach ministries both individually and through the efforts of parish committees. Using one’s personal gifts in the service of God brings benefit to both those who have need and those who serve. As Rev. Helena Houldcroft of Flemingdon Park Ministry said, helping others is a “transformative experience”.
Parishioners often provide additional support to the initiatives listed below and the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund. PWRDF is the Canadian Anglican response for emergency relief, refugees, development, and justice that is making a difference in the world!
If you are interested in serving with one of the outreach ministries listed below, or with the FaithWorks and Outreach Committee, please contact the Chair of the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Church office.
