There will be a Town Hall meeting following this service. It will use the same Zoom meeting link as the service.

Dr. Mary LeMaître, a University of Winnipeg professor who specializes in the analysis of colonial discourse (stereotypes about Indigenous people), will reflect on our collective and individual roles in bringing about Reconciliation in Canada. Why is this important? How do we go about it? What are we called to contribute or help change?

Service coordinators: Marian Siemens, Norm Cobb
