In Canada, former bishop’s residence is repurposed as homeless shelter

This past fall, the Anglican Church of Canada’s Diocese of Fredericton offered the six-bedroom residence to use as an overnight shelter for those experiencing homelessness in their city, which is the capital of the province of New Brunswick.  At the time, they estimated that there were 35 people sleeping on the streets in the city of approximately 60,000.
