The South Sudanese — already desperately poor and struggling to survive in the midst of a three-year civil war — are facing famine. Many have had to flee their homes searching for safety. Others, who have stayed behind haven't been able to plant their crops due to the war. The warring government and rebel forces which have created this terrible situation have been preventing humanitarian aid from reaching those most in need. Now the international community is beginning to take note and stepping in to try to restore peace and order and get food and supplies to the starving.
With our strong relationship with the South Sudan Episcopal Church, we are able to send aid directly to where the famine is most severe to support their work of feeding and caring for those who need it most. Join the relief effort with the Anglican Relief & Development Fund Canada.

October 4 & 12, 2017 | Cineplex Colisée Kirkland
CHANGING THE WORLD ONE CHILD AT A TIME
What happens when a six-year-old boy in Kenya is abandoned by his family and left to raise himself on the streets? MULLY is no ordinary rags-to-riches tale. It's the true story of Charles Mully, whose unlikely stratospheric rise to wealth and power leaves him questioning his own existence, searching for meaning in life. Against the better judgment of family and community, Mully sets out to enrich the fate of orphaned children across Kenya. Jeopardizing his own life and the security of his family, Charles Mully risks everything and sets in motion a series of events that is nothing short of astonishing.
You can catch this new documentary film from Focus on the Family at the Cineplex Colisée Kirkland exclusively on October 4 and 12.
October 25 - 27, 2017 | Burlington, ON
Our ANiC Synod will be taking place in Burlington, Ontario this year, and the theme will be "Remember Jesus", taken from 2nd Timothy 2:8-10:
Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, the offspring of David, as preached in my gospel, for which I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound! Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

June 17 - 22, 2018 | Jerusalem, ISRAEL
GAFCON 2018 will be held in Jerusalem, returning to the place where the movement began in 2008 when over 1,000 delegates acclaimed the inspirational Jerusalem Statement and Declaration. Attendance increased to over 1,500 for GAFCON 2013 in Nairobi and we expect a healthy increase in 2018.
“The Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) is enabling the Anglican Communion to be fit for God’s purposes in the twenty-first century. We are uniting Anglicans around the world in faithful witness to Jesus Christ and recovering Biblical truth where it has been compromised. There is much still to do, but we give great thanks to God for his grace at work among us.”
— Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, GAFCON Chairman & Primate of the Church of Nigeria

VERSE OF THE WEEK
O Lord, our Lord, how magnificent is your reputation throughout the earth! You reveal your majesty in the heavens above!
When I look up at the heavens, which your fingers made, and see the moon and the stars, which you set in place, of what importance is the human race, that you should notice them? Of what importance is mankind, that you should pay attention to them...?
Psalm 8:1, 3-4 (NET)
Collect of the week
The TEnth Sunday After Trinity
Let your merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of your humble servants; and that they may obtain their petitions, make them ask such things as shall please you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
