Our Rector, Canon Pratt, has been nominated to take part in this fundraiser to raise awareness about ALS and to raise money for research. This will be taking place on Sunday, September 21 after the 10:00 AM service. You are invited to support this initiative in two ways:
a) Bring a container of water from home, representing how we are all coming together to focus on this issue that has touched our parish family. Water will be collected at both entrances as you enter the building. It will then be brought forward during the offertory hymn, and later used to get our Rector soaking wet (for a good cause).
b) Consider making a donation to the ALS Society of Canada. For your convenience, on September 21 you can make a donation through the church (cheques made out to The Church of St. John the Evangelist) as an outreach donation, with “ALS” clearly written in the memo section. The church will forward monies to the ALS Society. Ensure that the church has your name and address for tax receipt purposes.
