Greetings from Thunder Bay!  I am happy to report that we have the makings of a CLAY Home Team!  There are currently five youth and one Home Team leader representing Algoma Diocese and MNO ELCIC Synod.  We’ll be registered by this time next week to go to Calgary in August for CLAY 2020!  A number of youth leaders have been busy canvassing the former CLAY 2018 participants in Thunder Bay, and putting together a plan for fundraising for registration and transportation over the next six months (or until we have the funds we need). We are open to a few more youth, and one leader joining us, youth who are between the ages of 14-19 and a leader who is over 19. All of us will be involved with fundraising and team building, including any members who may come from outside the Deanery of Thunder Bay-North Shore.

This is an invitation to let all parishes in the Diocese know that you may participate in the fundraising too!  Even if you are not supporting a youth or leader from your church, you can most certainly support our Home Team by hosting a local event or contributing to our fund.  Donations may be sent any time to the banker church  St. Michael and All Angels, 675 Red River Rd., Thunder Bay, ON P7B 1J1, with a note on the memo line: CLAY 2020. Attention: Rev. Nancy Ringham.

If you have not yet heard anything about CLAY, visit for more information!  And you may always call or text Rev. Nancy Ringham at 807-627-5667 or for up to the minute information on our CLAY Home Team!

Many thanks for your prayers too!

Blessings, Rev. Nancy Ringham
