Honour the Children who never returned home and the Survivors of residential schools with Glebe at our Sunday Service October 1st.
Below is a message from our Moderator, Carmen Lansdowne about commemorating the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as Orange Shirt Day.
One way that we can show Indigenous children that they matter is by investing in the Waase-Aabin program, which awards scholarships to post-secondary Indigenous students, age 18-29, who demonstrate economic need and academic excellence. See: indigenousministry. On September 30, and every day, we must remember that every child matters.
