A MESSAGE FROM DAVID HOWELLS

Dear Friends at the Christ Church Deer Park,

Many of you will remember my references to my son Ben's work among the poorest of people in India and and Nepal while I was with you. Ben and Prachant have kept on going and are finishing up projects in Kyrgyzstan before moving on towards Europe with its refugee camps and other areas of need.

Ben says....

After 20 months of projects in sustainable housing, capacity building, skills training and education between India and Kyrgyzstan, Ben Reid-Howells - organizations-trainer, Guelph - and Prashant Kumar - upcycling designer, Bihar, India - are preparing for the Refugee Relief Project in Turkey, working with IMECE Initiative to train Syrian women in skills for sustainable reconstruction and resilient livelihood.

Join us at:
Aug 24th / Trinity St Paul's Chapel Bloor St W. Toronto
Aug 25th / St Aidan's Church Queen St E. Toronto
All events begin at around 7-7.30pm

This short video to give you a taste of the event to come

Ben will be bringing traditional handicrafts from Kyrgyzstan for sale too!

With blessings...David Howells


THANK YOU

Thank you to Jayne Miles Simpson and her wonderful group of volunteers who provide amazing hospitality to the Toronto Diocesan Choir School for Girls who led us in a beautiful service of Evensong last Sunday. Thank you to all those who contributed in any way to make the evening a success and provided items towards the refreshments before the service and supper for the girls and their families after the service.

PROMISELAND SUMMER GARDEN!

Most Sundays, kids will be invited to meet volunteer teachers in the front pew and head outside to water, weed, plant and harvest our beautiful vegetable garden. Occasionally, the kids will be invited to stay upstairs with their families for worship (especially on Long Weekends) and encouraged to make use of the books and colouring supplies by the baptismal font. We hope you all have a wonderful summer!

CHILDREN'S CHOIR STARTS IN SEPTEMBER!

The wardens, Matthew Otto and I are thrilled to announce the expansion of our high-calibre music program. In September 2018, we will start the CCDP Children's Choir, a non-auditioned chorus for children and youth between the ages of 7-14. This will be an opportunity for our young parishioners and neighbours to experience singing in an accessible and fun environment at no cost. Choristers will receive music education, singing instruction and faith formation. Rehearsals will take place on Thursdays after school for approx. 1 hour and will sing at selected liturgies throughout the year.
