Event Details

On Saturday, September 30, at 6:00 p.m., The Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul will hold our second annual service to mark the Day of Truth and Reconciliation. Indigenous and settler-descendant voices will be raised in story, song, and prayer to Creator God. The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, Rev. Mary Fontaine, a member of the Cree First Nation of Mistawasis, Saskatchewan, will offer a homily. Singer-songwriter Shauit, a member of the Innu community of Mani-Utenam, will reprise his much-appreciated appearance last year, Kahnawake elder Don Barnaby will reflect on our nearby community and our ministers, Rev. Dr. Glenn Chestnutt and Rev. Susan Brasier will offer prayers. As last year, dozens of candles will be lit in memory of the victims and survivors of the residential schools, and orange t-shirts will fill the sanctuary.

Attendance at this remarkable service is very definitely open to all of any faith or no religious faith who share the hope of restoring right relations with our Indigenous brother and sisters.
