St. John the Evangelist, Edmonton Hosts Refugee Benefit Concert

St. John the Evangelist Refugee Committee, Edmonton was delighted to present a Refugee Benefit Concert on October 20, 2017. Attendees enjoyed a fun-filled evening featuring outstanding professional musicians from The King’s University, the University of Alberta and members of St. John’s Senior and Junior Choirs and 9:15 am band. After the concert refreshments and snacks were served in the Great Hall as everyone enjoyed listening and dancing to the Lion’s Senior Jazz Band. A free will offering was taken to help raise monies for St. John’s next Private Refugee Family Sponsorship, a Syrian family of four presently in Lebanon. This will be the 18th family that St. John’s has helped either through full sponsorship, the BVOR program or paper sponsorship. A big thank you goes out to all who supported this evening in order to help another family relocate to Canada. Story by Roz Lane / Photos by Doug Cowan
