November is Refugee Support Month at the Cathedral. Christ Church Cathedral has a long history of involvement in refugee work. Most recently, four years ago now, we sponsored a Syrian refugee, Safia, and the youngest of her six children, her 20 year old son, Saddam. Presently we are in the process of bringing over one of Safia's older sons, his wife, and young son.
To this end, the Cathedral Refugee Support Group will have a book display at the Christmas Bazaar. We will be selling Margriet Ruur's award winning children's book, "Stepping Stones". If you have not yet seen the book, it is very lovely and would make a perfect Christmas gift for those special children in your life. Half of the proceeds ($10 per book) will go to refugee support. Margriet has already raised about $65,000 for the refugee effort.
Please continue to keep our family in your prayers. And see you at the Christmas Bazaar!
