Cell Phone Tower Proposals
At the upcoming spring congregational meeting on May 31st we will be voting on where to donate the remaining funds from the cell phone tower revenue this year. $10,000 of the expected $20,400 is being divided between the U of A Chaplaincy and Street Hope St. John as preapproved at the AGM.

Spring Clean up and Renewal!!!
Our spring clean up will be on Saturday, May 23rd, 2015. More info to follow.

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.
