World Vision is looking for Special Event Volunteers in Edmonton.  Our volunteers act as our ambassadors at events, volunteering at our booth, answering questions from the public, and helping to sign up new sponsors of children. We usually have a few events each month that require volunteer support. Online training is provided prior to the event and there is on-site support at the majority of events so you will be well supported in your volunteer journey with World Vision. If you are looking for a flexible, meaningful and fun volunteer opportunity, then this is it! For more information please contact, Susanne Milner, Regional Volunteer Coordinator at susanne_milner@worldvision.ca .

FREE 1” x 6” x 16’ – 0” Spruce lumber: These boards are salvage from the roof of the old demolished shed and are in too good a condition to just be thrown away. Presently they are piled on the bench located near the trees behind the church. If anyone can use some or all of them, please take them ASAP, otherwise they will be hauled to landfill when the old shed floor is demolished in the near future. For more information contact the office at 780-437-7231.


At the end of May the Truth and Reconciliation Commission will be holding its final four-day hearing in Ottawa. When that hearing begins on May 31st it will be exactly 22 days until National Aboriginal Day on June 21st. Our Primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, has called our Anglican Church of Canada to observe those 22 Days with special intention. A website has been established (http://22days.ca), and there will be daily stories and suggestions for observing this time. You can also sign up to receive a daily email from the '22 Days' project. You can read a letter about this from Archbishop Fred and our national indigenous bishop, Mark MacDonald, at http://www.anglican.ca/news/statement-on-the-22days-campaign/3004358/; copies of this letter are also available for those who do not have Internet access. After that, please visit the website (http://22days.ca) and consider signing up for the daily emails.
