Feast for friends

On Saturday, September 22, the Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre (formerly the United Church Jessie Saulteaux Taining Centre) will be hosting a gathering of indigenous and non-indigenous friends, featuring a sunrise ceremony, sharing circles at the sacred fire, workshops on treaties and the Indian Act, teachings about traditional First Nations ways and values, games and crafts, and, of course, a feast.

There’s no set registration fee – it’s a “give as you can” plan, but registrations are required because the Centre can only accommodate 110 people, and the deadline for registration is September 7, 2012. Buses have been arranged for transport on Saturday morning, but you can also go out on Friday evening and camp overnight. More information about the event and registration forms are available in the Narthex.
