This special network of volunteers connects Anglicans and others to the work of PWRDF partners in Canada and internationally. They represent PWRDF in their dioceses and bring together PWRDF Parish Representatives to engage in the work of PWRDF.
Dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada
PWRDF Diocesan Representatives are appointed by their Diocesan Council or Diocesan Synod and approved by their Diocesan Bishop. Together with the PWRDF Board of Directors, they comprise the voting membership of the PWRDF Corporation.
To contact your PWRDF Diocesan Representative or to learn more about becoming a Diocesan Representative, please email Kim Umbach.
If you’re interested in getting involved or volunteering within your own parish, please contact your Diocesan Representative below.
