Bishop John Chapman speaks at "The Few Serving the Many" fundraising reception at the Palestinian General Delegation of Canada residence in Ottawa June 13. Co-hosted by the bishop and his wife, Catherine; and His Excellency Said Hamad (centre) and his wife, Mme Claudette Shwiry Hamad; the event was in support of the Princess Basma Center for Disabled Children, East Jerusalem, and the Ahli Arab Hospital, Gaza. The Ven. Dr. MIchael Thompson (right), who is General Secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, represented the primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz. The national church has made its partnership with the Diocese an international priority. The Basma Center provides important care for children with special needs and their families. The Ahli Arab Hospital is the only Christian hospital in the Gaza strip. Both facilities are operated by the Diocese of Jerusalem.

Appealing for Canadian Church Calendar Secretary for the Diocese of Ottawa for year 2015
I will continue as Calendar Secretary for 2014 with hope and faith that someone will come forward during the year to learn the ropes and subsequently be on board for 2015. It is a very rewarding position, in that you have the opportunity to meet and chat with various contacts in a fair number of churches throughout the Diocese. Subsequently, if your schedule permits, you will be required to be one day at Synod, attend the ACW Annual Meeting to give a report, and be in contact with the ACW Board throughout the year. I have enjoyed being the Calendar Secretary for a good number of years and feel that now is the time for new blood and computer-age savvy. Catherine Hannah. Contact Heidi Danson for further details

Synod Office - Volunteer Pool
As our diocesan staff at 71 Bronson prepares for a busy autumn of workshops and new initiatives, we are looking for people to join a new pool of volunteer administrative assistants. This would be a great way to connect with all sorts of people and projects and make a real difference in the way we do things. Timing is flexible and you will be supervised by a member of the admin staff.


GIFT CampaignGIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
