No Room at the Inn

Dear Friends,
Since 1999, the Edmonton & District Council of Churches has sponsored an ecumenical Christmas fundraising initiative called "No Room at the Inn (NRII). NRII is based on the biblical story of Mary and Joseph being forced to take refuge in a stable after discovering that there was no room for them in the inn in Bethlehem.Here locally, churches and individuals from many denominations join together around Christmastime to provide financial support to a housing provider to the homeless or those at risk in the Edmonton Capital Region. A committee of volunteers evaluates a range of housing projects and selects one that meets the need for safe and affordable housing for those in the greatest need.

This year, No Room in the Inn has chosen the Sage Seniors Safe House for their 2019 campaign. This year’s campaign will allow Sage to create dedicated client service areas and install accessible shower facilities in its Seniors Safe House, which offers refuge to older adults experiencing elder abuse.

Outdoor Way of the Cross

The Outdoor Way of the Cross is an annual event held on Good Friday, each year in Edmonton's inner city. Faithful Christians gather to re-enact Christ's journey to His crucifixion two millennia ago. The object of the walk is to draw attention to local social issues and the fact that we are all responsible for their solution.
