Presbyterians Sharing

Making Presbyterian connections
Presbyterian Connections is a new newspaper designed to unite
Presbyterians by sharing stories, reflections, interviews and
articles from across Canada.
By equipping leaders, connecting congregations and missions
and facilitating communication, the paper will help strengthen
denominational ties across the country.
Presbyterians are encouraged to subscribe, and stay connected!
After reading the first issue, one reader shared, “This
publication is just what we need to keep connected across the
country. I especially appreciated the very positive, hopeful and
encouraging vibe of this issue. Thank you!”
Presbyterians Sharing helps connect Presbyterians across Canada.

September 8 is International Literacy Day
In Guatemala, the Francisco Coll School sits on a landfill site
surrounded by shelters built by families trying to make ends
meet by collecting trash.
With the support of Presbyterian World Service &
Development, Francisco Coll is providing vulnerable boys and
girls with a proper education in a safe environment.
Maria Herrera, a student at Francisco Coll, dreams of
graduating from university and becoming an administrator.
Her mother doesn’t have a reliable income, but with support
from PWS&D, she can continue going to the school she loves.
In a letter thanking PWS&D for its support she says, “I ask
God that every day you have good health and blessings and that
you continue to be able to help adolescents achieve their dreams
and goals, like me.”
