Friendship Gifts for Residents of St. Anne's Place

This week, we made gift bags for our neighbours, the -- residents of the tower next door. Originally built by St. Anne's Church as a seniors building, St. Anne's Place has been a LOFT residence since 2000. St. Anne's has had weekly worship in the building all through the years (pre-COVID) and many residents also consider the congregation to be their church family. What a wonderful day!

--> From Hannah Johnston - re policing

'Toronto City Councillors Josh Matlow and Kristyn Wong-Tam are bringing a motion at the end of June to defund the City’s Police Force by 10% and invest the savings in community resources such as education, youth programming and mental health care. You can read more about the motion, and sign a petition in support of it here. You can also use this template to email or call your City Council Member to ask them to support the motion. The deadline is June 29th.’
