St. James Anglican Cathedral would like to extend a huge thank you to the County of Northern Lights for a community Capital Assistance Program grant received.

The grant, along with generous donations from members of the congregation, has made it possible to replace the wheelchair ramp, and landing, at the church entrance.  It now meets code requirements.


This project has been one of our priorities for many years.  We want to thank those who did groundwork researching options and putting information together.


We also want to acknowledge Rick Dostler and his crew for their attention to detail in the construction of the ramp and for completing it in a timely manner.


We are truly blessed!
