Cedar Park’s Social Justice ministry’s focus this fall is Reconciliation Matters.

The first event of the fall was a “Walking Tour of Kahnawake” on Saturday, Sept 14,attended by an incredibly number of people. It was an amazing day.

Our next event is a screening of the film We Were Children, and NFB film about the residential school system. Here is the NFB’s  description of the film:

In this feature film, the profound impact of the Canadian government’s residential school system is conveyed through the eyes of 2 children who were forced to face hardships beyond their years. As young children, Lyna and Glen were taken from their homes and placed in church-run boarding schools, where they suffered years of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, the effects of which persist in their adult lives. We Were Children gives voice to a national tragedy and demonstrates the incredible resilience of the human spirit.

Film content may be disturbing – not suitable for children. Free admission, with a freewill offering collected.

We’ll be showing the film on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 2pm. It’s important that you sign up!

(If there aren’t enough participants, we’ll have to cancel.)
