Jun 13, 2021. This past week was the General Assembly or Annual Meeting of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. At that meeting our church voted to approve same-sex marriage and ordination of our LGBTQI brothers and sisters. This worship service has a focus on those issues.

 June 6, 2021 is Healing & Reconciliation Sunday, Communion Sunday, and the beginning of General Assembly.

Here is the link for our Sunday Service. This service includes a recorded communion service at the end of it. A link for 11:00 a.m. communion service and coffee hour will go out before the service.

Support is available for anyone affected by their experience at residential schools, and those who are triggered by the latest reports.

A national Indian Residential School Crisis Line has been set up to provide support for former students and those affected. People can access emotional and crisis referral services by calling the 24-hour national crisis line: 1-866-925-4419.

I mention in the service that there will be links on our website for our national office and our church’s role in residential schools and the healing and reconciliation process.  “Healing and Reconciliation”
