We Are Working on a New Family!

At Vestry this year (2018), the parish voted to enter into a refugee sponsorship agreement with Martin Luther Church down on the Lakeshore to co-sponsor the sister and brother-in-law of Tewelde Fessahatsion (a parishioner) and their children. They are currently in a refugee camp in Africa.

As our part of the sponsorship, CCSJ has committed to raising $20,000.

How to help?

For people wishing to make a tax-receipted charitable donation, cheques can be made out "Christ Church St. James" and marked with "Refugee Fund" in the memo line (and mailed or dropped off at the church).

To e-mail funds, please send an e-mail to admin@christchurchstjames.ca with your name and address and amount you will be sending (so that we can receipt you properly) and the password to be used to receive the funds when the e-mail notification from your bank arrives.
