Cash or cheques (payable to St. Catherine’s ACW Group) are welcome and can be given to Kathy Chaddock or Judi MacDonald following the 10:00 am service on all the Sundays in November.  Thank you for your anticipated support.

CONGREGATIONAL COUNCIL MEETING VIA ZOOM
COUNCIL NOTICE
Your Cathedral Council will meet at 7 pm on November 18th via Zoom.  
NEW: At its last meeting, Council approved a proposal to advertise for and hire a part-time Communications Co-ordinator to work with the Communications Committee and assist the Office Administrator in the all-important matter of communications. With the departure of Sheila Gordon to Ottawa and with the new challenges of living in a time of pandemic, we have felt an increasingly urgent need to make the most of the means of communication available to us, especially digital and social media. The purpose is to promote Cathedral activities in the community and to develop key communications tools that support worship at the Cathedral. Council approved a contract position, for up to 40 hours a month, to begin in January 2021, and anticipates that it might be filled by a student studying in that area.

November 22, 2020
WHITE RIBBON SUNDAY
Honour White Ribbon Sunday - wear a white ribbon on November 22 and for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence  (Nov. 25 – Dec. 10) #OurActionsMatter. The white ribbon, with the pledge never to commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women and girls, is important for followers of Jesus to wear: we cannot remain silent in the face of gender injustice. We can commit to build a future defined by respect and empathy and where the dignity of all is honoured. Wear a white ribbon.

SAINT GEORGE’S SOUP KITCHEN
Our Outreach Committee continues to provide meals for St. George’s Soup kitchen. 

PWRDF UPDATE
As the Cathedral PWRDF representative, I participated in a virtual Diocesan meeting of parish representatives. We had excellent presentations by two staff members of PWRDF. We learned that PWRDF spent $6.6 million on Development last year throughout Canada and the world. The Federal Government has given PWRDF $1.9 million as an extension of the All Mothers and Children Count campaign to buy PPE”S and other equipment to ensure their partners in Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania and Mozambique are able to keep their health clinics safely open during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Any donation to this programme is matched 6:1 by the Government of Canada. If you go the webpage, pwrdf.org, you can see how to donate to this very worthwhile programme. We also learned that PWRDF is ranked in the top 100 of Canadian charities. They manage their resources very well with only 10% of their budget going to staff expenses and fundraising efforts. With this in mind, I hope you will join me in using the World of Gifts to give very meaningful gifts to family and friends especially over the Christmas season. Some of the larger items are suitable for a group or organization to consider as a fund raising project. Details of the World of Gifts were sent out with the Anglican Journal and are available at pwrdf.org. Of course donations can be made to PWRDF through their website or through the special church envelopes. - Chris Field (chrfield@gmail.com)
