FAITH & FINANCES

DEACON AL FUND “LOONIES WITH LOVE” CAMPAIGN | Summer 2017
You can do your part to support the Deacon Al Fund by dropping your spare change into a jar marked “Loonies with Love” over the summer. For more information contact Shirley Rehill or Anne Simons.
About The Deacon Al Fund: Deacon Al Gearing worked and learned with us at Christ Church before he was ordained. Al was an older gentleman in his second career and he requested his monetary parting gift would best honour him by becoming a fund that would help those in need. This has evolved into our priest’s discretionary fund, The Deacon Al Fund, which can be of immediate assistance to members of our congregation and community.
