Working Together to Assist Refugees

Representatives of four Anglican parishes – St. Catherine, Port Coquitlam; St. John’s, Port Moody; St. Stephen the Martyr, Burnaby; and St. Timothy, Burnaby – met on Sunday April 10th to explore ways of working together to assist refugees in their region.

Spokespersons from REST, a North Vancouver group of churches and Humanity4Syrians from Coquitlam provided information to help these churches initiate their joint effort. The group appointed a representative from each of the four churches to form a Steering Committee. This committee will explore options for best assisting refugees arriving to Canada.
