Starting in January 2019, our good stewardship program will be changed. To reduce the administration time and cost maintaining the program, we will join the Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program from the National office of the United Church of Canada. Over 100 parishes in our diocese are currently using them. For the existing donors on the good stewardship program, we will prepare the new registration form and our wardens will reach out to you in person for the transition process. This is also the best time for anyone to join the program. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Good Stewardship coordinator Amy Chiu (email@example.com) or the churchwardens.
