On Saturday, July 30th the vestry and parishioners of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Corner Brook held a barbecue in the Canadian Tire parking lot to bring awareness of, and provide support to, the ALS Society of Newfoundland and Labrador in honour of Ray and Valerie Pretty, following Ray’s recent diagnosis. BBQ costs were covered by generous donations from vestry members and others, allowing all funds raised to be donated directly to the ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Society of NL.

The success of this venture was obvious on September 28th, when Dean Catherine Short and the vestry presented a cheque for $3,069.28 to Cheryl Power, the Executive Director of the ALS/SLA Society of NL, which has its headquarters in Corner Brook.
