Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have caused catastrophic damage to South Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.
How can you help? ARDF is partnering with Bishop Clark Lowenfield of the Anglican Diocese of the Western Gulf Coast. Based in Houston, Bishop Clark will be coordinating the relief effort among churches in the region. Once the weather has passed, they will make an assessment of the ACNA communities in the flooded areas and begin to distribute the aid we are receiving now. Join the relief effort regarding Hurricane Harvey with the Anglican Relief & Development Fund Canada.
ARDF is also partnering with several Anglican Dioceses to help get relief to people affected by Hurricane Irma: the Diocese of the Gulf Atlantic, based in Jacksonville, FL, The Anglican Diocese of the South, based in Atlanta, GA, and the Diocese of the Carolinas, based in Pleasant, SC. At the moment, you can only donate regarding Hurricane Irma via the General ARDF Website.
Anglican Relief and Development Fund Canada (ARDFC) is partnering with the Anglican Diocese of Cameroon to provide a full service healthcare clinic in the city of Douala. It will offer inexpensive, quality care to people who do not have access to, or who cannot afford, health care and medications.
The clinic will be operated by the Diocese, which is part of the Church of West Africa, and is expected to provide care to about 1000 patients each month. The Diocese will ensure that patients have access to affordable care as well as hear the Good News of the Great Physician.
Read more about the project and donate online at the ARDFC website.
CHANGING THE WORLD ONE CHILD AT A TIME
October 4 & 12, 2017 | Cineplex Colisée Kirkland
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
Love must be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another with mutual love, showing eagerness in honoring one another. Do not lag in zeal, be enthusiastic in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, endure in suffering, persist in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, pursue hospitality. Bless those who persecute you, bless and do not curse.
Romans 12:9-14 (NET)
Collect of the week
The Thirteenth Sunday After Trinity
Almighty and merciful God, of whose only gift it comes that your faithful people give you true and laudable service: Grant, we pray you, that we may so faithfully serve you in this life, that we may not finally fail to attain your heavenly promises; through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord.
