 St. Thomas' Parishioners support for PWRDF

 

Dear Friends of PWRDF,

 

On behalf of the Board, staff and partners of The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), I would like to extend our thanks for your recent generous donation of $8,213.70 from your church.

Your gift supports the work of PWRDF and its partners in preventive health, mother and child wellness, food security and nutrition, clean water and sanitation, Indigenous language and cultural reclamation, economic empowerment, and emergency humanitarian relief both here at home in Canada and in more than thirty countries around the world. For over 60 years, PWRDF has worked to improve the lives of marginalized people around the world through development programs and relief efforts. We could not achieve these results and helped so many vulnerable men, women and children without the generous support of our caring donors like you. 

Thank you again for your support for the work of PWRDF and our vision of creating a truly just, healthy and peaceful world. 

With blessings and gratitude,

 

Will Postma
Executive Director

Kitchen user education

 Please stay current with proper kitchen safety and practices.

The Kitchen Manual can be found as a download in the Resource section of this website. This should be read periodically by all users to keep updated. Any questions should be directed to the church kitchen management team. This is important for insurance purposes.

Education sessions for those requiring supervisor training or those wishing an update will be held as needed. Please give your name to the office and the Kitchen Team will get back to you with the time of the next session. The education only takes about half an hour, but it’s a vital part of our compliance with local health and safety regulations, now that we have been approved to cook and serve food to the general public.

Register for training through the office by phoning 613 962-3636 or emailing office@stthomasbelleville.ca.
