The Anglican and Evangelical Lutheran Women’s Group would like to express their most heartfelt thanks for the donation of the offering from the Anglican-Lutheran Service during Holy Week, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 7 pm at St. Paul’s. In February 2011, the ELC Lutheran Church Women invited their Anglican sisters to join them in what was to become our motto ‘Fighting poverty in Thunder Bay.’ Our major achievements was the creation of a bursary, to be awarded to a worthy student, and thus break the cycle of poverty through education. In 2012 we awarded our first bursary. We will be awarding our second bursary within in the next two months.
