Interfaith/Ecumenical officer report for November

By | Buzz | No Comments

Just a few brief thoughts about my last two meetings.
The Capital Region Interfaith Council met for our AGM. This was a time of reflection and election of our new officers for the year. That was most of the meeting’s activity, however we did vote money to restore the CRIC website so I am hopeful that in the New Year I will be able to pass on that URL to you for those interested in the ongoing work of CRIC.
At the Christian Council we took a fair amount of time hearing from MAP Reintegration (www.mapreintegration.ca). MAP stands for Mentorship, Aftercare, Presence. This is a largely volunteer organization, local to the Ottawa area, which helps people released from prison make the transition into Canadian society. They have a well respected track record of helping to prevent re-offending through their work to support ex-prisoners to find housing, jobs, and community; the very things that help them to establish stable, active lives on the outside of prison. It is an impressive program that saves both lives and the Canadian taxpayer. Please go to the website for more information. While MAP’s funding was lost some years ago, they have continued to carry on with a shoestring budget. If you would like to contribute to this organization financially or volunteer please go to their website. We were all very impressed with their work, especially considering the financial constrains under which they work. — the Rev. John Wilker-Blakley
