Bishop Donald and Trudy Harvey Legacy Fund
Investing today in discipling and nurturing children and youth
to be faithful leaders in the church tomorrow
The Bishop Donald and Trudy Harvey Legacy Fund is named in honour of the Right Reverend Donald Harvey, the first bishop of the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC), and his wife of 50 years, Trudy (Gertrude).
This Fund will support creative, sustainable ministry initiatives in ANiC which nurture and disciple children and young people. This fund is independently administered by a board of directors currently comprised of Bishop Charlie Masters, Bishop Don Harvey, Trudy Harvey, Jane Masters, Mary Ann Masters and Jessica Underdown.
Donations to this Fund may be made through ANiC parishes or directly to ANiC.

Bishop Don Harvey is the founding diocesan bishop and moderator of the Anglican Network in Canada. While Bishop Don traveled North America, and even the world, ministering and helping to build ANiC, ACNA and the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, Trudy quietly and sacrificially made his ministry possible.
Trudy, a 30-year primary school teacher, is a church musician, an active community volunteer, and a passionate prayer warrior. Bishop Don and Trudy make their home in St John’s, Newfoundland.
“I believe ministry with children and youth is a vital area which requires much more effort and resources. We do not have the luxury of time on our side.”
~ Bishop Donald Harvey
Catechesis (ka-tə-ˈkē-səs) is the Church's God-assigned task of grounding believers in Christ and in the foundations of the Christian faith. It is making disciples by teaching them all that Christ taught the apostles, and calling them to live in the light of that teaching.
In ANiC we believe effective catechesis is vitally important for the flourishing of our members and the fruitfulness of our churches as they witness in the world.
We have a team who works to provide resources for the equipping of our people in catechesis and for the training of catechists.
You can find all our Catechesis resources and more information about catechesis here:
Anglican 4th Day
The Anglican 4th Day (A4D) movement is an initiative of the Anglican Church in North America and is dedicated to bring people to Christ, encourage Christian fellowship, and nurture godly leaders. It is modeled on the well-known Cursillo movement. Anglican 4th Day is a worldwide movement which seeks to bring people to Christ, helps Christians grow in discipleship and offers warm fellowship.
BC Ultreya – The BC Lower Mainland chapter of Anglican 4th Day holds its monthly Ultreyas on the 3rd Friday of each month.
In addition, men's and women's weekend events are held occasionally. Contact email Shelly Steele for details.
Anglican Fourth Day (A4D) Province-wide conference
A Provincial Grand Ultreya and Conference is held annually in the US. Check the Anglican 4th Day website for dates and locations.
How it works
Three-day weekend events are an important part of the A4D movement. These are designed to be “encounters with Christ”. On the weekends, participants learn how to nurture their spiritual growth.
From these weekends, small local fellowship groups form which meet frequently to share and to encourage and support one another in living the Christian life. The larger Anglican 4th Day Community comes together in monthly "Ultreyas" meetings for worship, sharing and fellowship.
Consult the A4D Handbook which encapsulates the principles of A4D and provides guidelines for local A4D servant communities.
