We are pleased to welcome the Moderator of the 133rd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada to St. Andrew’s on Sunday, March 9th. The Rev. Dr. J.H. Hans Kouwenberg will be in Saskatoon as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Cross-Canada Tour. He will worship with us at St. Andrew’s at our 11 a.m. service and share a reflection on scripture and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
We will also welcome Lori Ransom, the Healing and Reconciliation Animator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. Lori is also travelling with the Cross-Canada Tour, as Church Leaders and Aboriginal Leaders introduce and promote the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that will be beginning in 2009.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet the Moderator and to take part in the special event at the Western Development Museum at 3 p.m. The St. Andrew’s Choir will be joining with Mayfair United Church’s choir to provide “Songs of Hope” for the event. It will also include smudging by a local Native Elder, reflections on the residential school experience, words of apology by Church Leaders, and more. The event concludes with a meal (around 5 p.m.) followed by a round dance.
Be sure to phone (306-653-1633) or email () the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism if you are planning to attend.
