Adopt-a-Canterburianan opportunity to "adopt" a student for the course of one academic year. Adopting parishioners are expected to connect with your student at least once during each semester (e.g. over a meal), and to prepare a goodie-bag for them during exams. Adopt-a-Canterburian parents are welcome at Sunday Fellowship Dinners, The Thanksgiving Feast, the Holiday Hymn Sing, the Easter Vigil Party, and *especially* the End-of-Year Banquet.
