Fr. David Haines, Vicar General for Global Partnerships, writes to update the members of the Anglican Province of America on the status of funds raised during our 2012 Lenten Appeal. His letter is below.
Dear Family in Christ,
I just wanted to let you all know about the ongoing progress with regard to the Lenten Appeal. First, let me express my personal thanks for all of you who have done so much to promote this worthwhile cause to your congregations and for all those who have contributed so generously to this effort. As of today (Friday, April 20) the provincial treasurer has received contributions from 13 churches as well as a number of individuals. Our total to date is around $33, 0000!!! Praise be to God!! We are almost there and of course would like to hear from all our parishes and missions. Please encourage your parish treasurers to forward the monies collected to our Provincial Treasurer, D. J. Fulton as soon as they are able.
Please continue to pray for these efforts, especially that we might indeed meet our target of $40,000, but also that we might complete the transaction without long delays and complications.
God bless you all for taking up this endeavor so enthusiastically. Please also continue to pray for all our foreign churches and global partners.
Remembering that in all things, He is able. I remain faithfully yours,
Fr. David Haines
Vicar General for Global Partnerships, APA
