Please plan to join us for a screening of the movie “The Secret Path” after church on Sunday, October 17. This movie acknowledges a dark part of Canada’s history with the hope of starting our country on a road to reconciliation. It features Gord Downie’s music and the graphic novel by Jeff Lemire, telling the story of Chanie Wenjack, a twelve-year-old boy who died in 1966 after running away from Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School to return to his family over 400 miles away. You can also watch the movie at https://secretpath.ca/#Home
What do you think of when we talk about “Outreach?” Do you think of serving the community? Addressing a need? Consultation? Idea exchange? It’s any of these options, all of these options, and more. Watch the Community Corner Blog in the coming weeks as we have posts on what outreach means to different people in St Paul’s.
