Our role in the parish is to raise awareness among parishioners about issues of justice. We dream of a society in which all individuals have the opportunity to reach their spiritual, social, and material potential and in which a sustainable environment is maintained; and we work to this end.
We meet over breakfast at Bud's on the Bay, on the third Saturday of each month from 8:00 to 9:15 am, to discuss issues of justice and to plan activities. We strive to educate and inform the congregation about factors which prevent people from fulfilling their spiritual, social and physical needs locally, nationally and internationally. We also promote initiatives which address problems and gaps in service.
Within our parish we encourage activities which help our community. These include:
- Comforting Arts weekly
- Loaves and Fishes monthly
- Operation Harvest Sharing Food Bank monthly
- Layette Program
- Commonwealth Breakfast Program and Literacy Program
- Mr. Fix-it Group Support
Nationally our parish also supports national church programs through our contribution to the Diocese of Ontario, Common Mission and Ministry. Find details about the Council of the North at http://www.anglican.ca/cn/
Internationally, we support the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). For more information visit http://pwrdf.org/. We also have a connection with Bethany Kids, a hospital for children in Kenya. See http://www.bethanykids.org/
We are also members of KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives which unites Canadian churches and religious organizations in a faithful ecumenical response to the call to "do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8). https://www.kairoscanada.org/For more information about St. Paul's Justice Ministry, please contact Julie Case at firstname.lastname@example.org .
