The Ascension parishioners are a giving bunch! Their Christmas Offering (given in the special offering envelope) is used for Outreach purposes. Over the years, through this or through special fundraisers we have made donations to the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund; the Diocese of Moosonee, and the Diocese of Tarime in Tanzania. In 2012 and 2013 we held a fundraiser to put new roofs onto churches that the Bishop of Tarime – Bishop Mwita Akiri was building. During our 60th Anniversary year in 2014, parishioners made a ‘thank offering’ and donated money to the Diocese of Tarime for a church that was just starting up.
In the coming year we hope to become involved in sponsoring a refugee family in New Sudbury but this is very much in the early stages.
