Making a difference in Jesus' name through justice & servant ministries at
home and around the world
Through the prayers and generosity of Anglicans in the Diocese of Niagara,
Hands Across Niagara supports our ability to engage God's mission throughout
our diocese and beyond as we live out our baptism by committing to justice and servant ministries.
Every donation to Hands Across Niagara will be directed so that:
- one third will go directly to your home parish to support justice and servant work in the local community,
- one third funds grants for the kinds of ministry described in this brochure, and,
- one third supports the mission of the Anglican Church of Canada.
