The Anglican Church of Canada has named The Reverend Barbara Shoomski a Marks of Mission Champion. She leads an inner-city ministry, Kakinow Ntomakanik, out of All Saints’ Anglican Church in partnership with West Broadway Community.
A video about her ministry was shown at the recent Joint Assembly and was also webcast internationally. People were moved and inspired by her work with men women and children living in poverty in the downtown core of Winnipeg. Her dedication to transforming unjust structures of society is a gift to the national church and has made a huge difference in her community.
“All Saints’ would like to congratulate Barbara on her dedication and hard work championing those who often get lost in the shuffle. We are proud and humbled to have people like you among us,” a statement from the church said.
