Such fun! Check out our photos below.
Approximately 10 years ago Emmanuel Church with the help of the Bishop of Jerusalem, began giving needy families cash gifts prior to Christmas. Several years ago, with the downturn in the economy, the bishop had to reduce the amount of his assistance, but Emmanuel Church has continued to provide 12 – 14 families 700 shekels (approx. $250.00 CDN) before Christmas (not all of the families are Anglican). The Rev. Samuel Fanous has indicated they need help with providing funds for 5 families.
If you missed our pancake lunch but would like to help, please write a cheque to St. Laurence, and note Ramleh, on the memo line. A tax receipt will be issued.
