PWRDF accepting donations for B.C.; national church to hold vigil

The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is now accepting donations towards an emergency response in British Columbia. The news of the destructive floods, especially after a particularly devastating fire season, is moving Anglicans to reach out to offer support. Learn more and donate on the PWRDF website.

This Sunday at 5:30 p.m., Primate Linda Nicholls and Archbishop Mark MacDonald will lead an online vigil to lift up all those who have been affected by the recent floods in B.C. The Zoom details will be announced on Friday. For more details, visit
