From the Convocation of Anglicans in North America:
April 26, 2009
April 25 was named "World Malaria Day". At the beginning of Lent, Bishop Minns sent out an email asking CANA congregations to consider raising funds for CANA's ongoing mission partnership with CAPA's Malaria office in Africa through whom we can purchase and distribute ITNs (insecticide treated nets) for only $7 (as opposed to some other organizations which have more overhead and therefore must charge more).
To make a contribution to CANA's malaria mission, please mail your checks to the following:
3301 Hidden Meadow Drive
Herndon VA 20171
If you have any questions about this mission partnership, please contact the director of CANA's "Inspired Service" task force for social justice and missions, the Rev'd Bill Haley at Inspired.Service@CanaConvocation.org or 888.460.5556 ext. 113.
Editor's note: there are two CANA churches in Central NY, St. Andrew's in Vestal and Westside Anglican in Syracuse. Last year St. Andrew's financially supported this work and I hope that we will do so this year.
