Syrian Refugee Crisis - Video
We can make a Difference!!
Would you like to help with our refugee project? St Alban The Martyr Anglican Church is partnering with Anglican Diocese of Niagara and the local Community in the hope of settling two refugee families in Acton within the next few weeks. Volunteers are welcome to help our families integrate within our community.
Alternatively donations can be made to St. Albans and marked "Refugee Fund". Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $20 or more. Through the Diocese of Niagara fund, St.Albans will be participating in the BVOR Sponsorship option where the Federal Government will share the cost of sponsorship 50/50.
