Celebrating Mothers Whether it is your biological mother, or another woman who has cared and loved you through thick and thin, Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate the amazing women who have been there for you in your life. Mother Earth is another mother we must never forget. The recent celebration of Earth Day has provided us with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our collective Mother who sustains life on this planet for all of us, and who provides unconditional love and care that we all require to grow and mature into healthy, responsible adults.
Ongoing Formation - May 2021 Truth and Reconciliation - Residential Schools
Our May meeting will host a presentation by John Barrett who is an elder of Zion Presbyterian Church. He will be speaking to us concerning Canada's Residential Schools and the subsequent Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
During his years of involvement at both the National and local levels, John has studied and been involved with the history and issues related to Residential Schools that were run by the Presbyterian Church of Canada. This has brought him into dialogue with church, aboriginal and political leaders in Canada and has provided him with an informed perspective on the horrendous and deep scars, which Indigenous people have experienced.
