Woodroffe United Church has been thankful for the opportunity to support a young Syrian family as they settle in Ottawa and remake their lives. With the financial and moral assistance of the Congregation and friends, we have helped the family find accommodation, and get into language training, employment, schooling. As well, we have helped them deal with the myriad demands of moving to a new country and move forward toward an independent life in Canada.
We sincerely thank all those who have helped us and the family.
The choirs of Woodroffe United and St. John the Evangelist, with the Strings of St John’s, will perform old and new Christmas favourites, including the beautiful Celtic inspired Cantata “Stars of Glory”.
Thanks to everyone who came for the concert and treats before.
The concert will also be presented at the Church of St John the Evangelist Sunday December 11 at 2pm.
