The Edmonton and District Council of Churches (EDCC) 2021 No Room In the Inn (NRII) campaign is now underway. Traditionally, many Anglican parishes in Edmonton have taken up a Christmas Eve collection for NRII. Please invite your parish community to support the campaign (information attached).
This year, No Room In the Inn is supporting L’Arche Edmonton, which provides supportive housing and assistance for adults with special needs. With the funding raised in this year’s campaign, L’Arche Edmonton will be renovating and upgrading one of their seven houses in the Edmonton area.
For more than 20 years, EDCC has coordinated No Room In the Inn, an ecumenical justice housing initiative based on the Biblical story of Mary and Joseph seeking a safe place to stay when there was no room in the inn. This annual campaign invites people of Edmonton and area churches to think about those in our community who do not have adequate and safe housing in which to live. During this pandemic when we have had to spend so much time “at home” we have become more aware than ever of the importance of a safe place to live.
