Our Primate,Archbishop Fred Hiltz wrote to us to ask our prayers for Palestine and Israel in the wake of the escalating conflict in that region. He goes on to say: The Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City (owned and operated by The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem) is exceeding its capacity to meet the humanitarian crisis. In the face of shortages in medicines, fuel and food, Bishop Suheil Dawani has issued an urgent appeal for help.Donations can be made through the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund. Through ACT Alliance (Action by Churches Together), we are working with local partners to provide support for those wounded and displaced in this ongoing siege.

I ask for your prayers. Pray for all who have died and all who mourn. Pray for all those injured and those who tend them in the most difficult of circumstances, the hospitals and clinics themselves under the continuing threat of bombing. Pray fervently for a ceasefire, for those living in absolute fear by day and by night. Pray for world leaders who offer counsel in negotiating a settlement to this current crisis and in securing a lasting peace for all Palestinians and Israelis. Pray as Dr. Olav Fyske Tveit has said, that together they may work "to transform the discourse of hatred and revenge...into one that sees the other as neighbour and as equal brother and sister in one God."




Deanery Outreach – Please remember the deodorant for the North Shore Youth Shelter.


Healing Pathways -This is a ministry of prayer and healing. Do you feel anxious or worried about things? Are you suffering physically? Do you need a time of prayer and healing?

There are three levels to the award: Bronze, Silver and Gold. As there are different requirements for each level, we can assist you in choosing the appropriate level with which to start. Our group will provide support, keep you accountable and move you along to achieve your goal (and it’s always more fun to do this with friends!).

Please contact St. Christopher’s Church at [email protected] to join our group, and go to for more information on the award.

Members of St. Catherine's and Gloria Dei are excited to be working on a new joint outreach project in the Capilano community. The Turning Point Recovery Home for women is about to be opened near Gloria Dei, and our church communities are looking forward to supporting this welcome new presence in our neighbourhood. One of the ways we will be helping is in the creation of "Welcome Baskets" for the women who spend time at the home. On the following page there is a list of the items we are collecting for the baskets - if you can, please bring them to the church soon! We will be meeting at Gloria Dei on August 9th to assemble baskets for the first women who move into the home in August.
