Anglican Foundation of Canada


The Parish of Vaudreuil in 2015 was the grateful recipient of funding from the Anglican Foundation of Canada to help with renovations to their church buildings.  St. James’ applied for and was awarded a very generous grant of $15,000 from the Anglican Foundation towards our Renovation project.  Both Marcus Owen and Tom Pound were instrumental in preparing and presenting our project to the Diocese of Montreal to have their support for our application.

We expect to receive a plaque from the Foundation very shortly and it will be mounted with pride in the church. Our Anglican Foundation Liaison, Ruth Sheeran will be visiting St. James’ on October 11th and we hope many of you will be at the 11:00 a.m. service to welcome her.

A bit of information about the Foundation:

The Anglican Foundation of Canada seeks to provide abundant resources for innovative ministries, Anglican presence, and diverse infrastructure projects across the Canadian Church. [from the website]

THE ANGLICAN FOUNDATION OF CANADA was created by a motion of General Synod in 1957 to encourage and support ministry within The Anglican Church of Canada.

Leading the way in resourceful ministry since 1957, AFC has benefited dioceses, hundreds of parishes and thousands of Canadian Anglicans with the provision of financial support for ministry from coast to coast to coast. [from the website]
