St. Ann’s Roman Catholic Church is hosting the Fellowship of the Least Coin Friday night. Organizer Dona O’Brien says it’s open to all men, women and children interested just bring your coins. She explains Fellowship of the Least Coin is under the leadership of an international women’s association called Church Women United and it is a Christian women’s organization around the world since 1941. Here in Flin Flon she adds there are ten churches involved and as a women’s group they are encouraged to donate their loose change or least coins at their various women’s meetings and then donate them to the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada and they pass it on to various countries that have projects that help women around the world who are suffering lack of respect and dignity.
The money shared last year was almost 114 thousand dollars to 21 projects. O’Brien adds this year six women from six countries will share their stories. The celebration takes place Friday night at 7 o’clock at St. Ann’s Church on Centre Street.
