Prayers Needed for Alberta Family


Our hearts and prayers reach out for Priest Richard Altvater and his family after his wife, Kunthea Altvater of Coaldale, Alberta, died from injuries received when their minivan slid off the road and rolled into the Elk River on Dec. 1, 2013.  Priest Altvater is the Rector of the Lethbridge, Alberta congregation.  He and his daughter received minor injuries in the accident.  One son has been upgraded from critical condition and is recovering in a hospital in Edmonton.  The youngest son is still in critical condition in the same hospital as his older brother. 


Numerous prayer circles have been established in congregations, via Facebook and social media and also word of mouth.  Expressions of love and sympathy for our Priest and family are pouring in from across Canada and around the world.  A trust fund has been established for the children to help them in their recovery.  If you wish to contribute to this trust fund, please contact a branch of the Royal Bank with the following details:
