Canadian Congregations - Haiti Contributions

Thank you!

In addition to what is being done at the World Church level in support of church members in Haiti, the members of the Community of Christ in Canada have contributed over $56,000 to the Oblation Fund in January and February in support of relief efforts.

These funds are being sent to the Canadian Red Cross where they will be matched by the Federal Government. The  Canadian Council of Christian Charities has confirmed with CIDA that the donations given by individuals to a church that are forwarded to another Canadian registered charity doing the work in Haiti would be matched by the Federal Government.

This means that your donations to the Oblation Fund during the period designated by CIDA and which are sent to the Canadian Red Cross will be part of matching program. In other words, $112,000 is now at work assisting those affected by this terrible event.

Your continued contributions to the Oblation Fund will assist the good work that World Church is doing to assist our Haitian friends and will replenish the fund so that oblation ministry can continue throughout the church.

            Thank you for your generous response.

Jim Poirier, Bishop of Canada
