I am leaving a gift in my will to St John's because I dream of a future where this community of faith thrives and is here for others when I am not. I have been a member of St John's for over fifty years and this community of faith has been central to my life. It has stretched and deepened my faith, allowed me to participate in different ways, supported me through all the cycles of life and given me opportunities to grow in leadership based on values that are important to me.
I am thankful for the community of St John's. A community that addresses the issues of our time and finds solutions that reflect compassion and justice for all people. I am honoured to leave a gift to St John's as part of my legacy."
