An African proverb states: “It takes a village to raise a child.” We help raise monies for several different projects in fifteen developing countries though the sponsorship of children and the elderly in need. You too can sponsor a child for a mere $33/month, (that is, $1.10 a day, which is less than a cup of coffee or $396 for one year. Get involved by placing the call to Chalice, at 1-800-776-6855 or visit their web site at www.chalice.ca.
Our St. Anthony’s community sponsors thirty-five children in several countries, such as, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Cameroon, Chile, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Kenya, Paraguay, Peru, Philippians, Tanzania, Ukraine and Zambia. St. Anthony’s Parish sponsors a child in Guatemala. The Bingo Group sponsors three children and our Sunday School children sponsors a child.
The summer of 2013 and 2014 saw parishioner, Eszter Brewer, leave Fredericton with medical supplies for the newly built and opened Maternity Medical Clinic in Tanzania. Our Chalice Committee has raised money selling tickets each Christmas season, 2013 – present, on the very successful Christmas Turkey Dinner Hamper; 2018 very successful Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper; and our annual Good Friday luncheon raises monies with the Seafood Chowder. The Sunday School children raised monies with their Chalice cans and the Chalice Cup, presently it is at the entrance of the Church. In December of 2014, we sent two donations of $500 from money raised in the parish. May 2016 the Chalice Committee presented Paula Thomas a cheque for $1,000. for her trip to Ukraine.
Chalice monthly meetings held on Thursdays at 7 pm in the Rectory. Please join us.
