A young parishioner from St. Paul's has made a pledge to teach a dance to a group of children in Africa who have been orphaned through AIDS. The camps are the brainchild of Sarina Condello. She travels to Africa for 2 months every summer offering week-long creative arts camps at various orphanages. The children enjoy life at summer camp, and at the end of the week they star in a performance to which relatives and community members are invited. Using this medium, the kids have a way to communicate with each other and work together--sick or healthy, colour and gender blind.

Our young parishioner has been invited to join with Sarina as the lone volunteer. She needs to find the resources to pay for travel, accomodations & meals which she estimates will be about $5,300. She is seeking support from her community to help her participate in this worthy cause.

If you or someone you know is willing to help her, please contact St. Paul's Cathedral for details:, or phone 250-372-3912 during office hours.
