Sunday, June 21, the bell will toll 1,122 times for the “Stolen Sisters”, missing and murdered aboriginal women in Canada

June 18, 2015 at 3:40 pm
This Sunday, June 21, marks the National Indigenous Day of Prayer. In response to the recently published report of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee, the Anglican Church of Canada has sponsored a “22 days” campaign to raise awareness about the struggles of First Nations communities and to encourage prayer in solidarity with these brothers and sisters in Christ.
Part of the commemorations have included the regular ringing of Church bells across Canada in honour of the “Stolen Sisters” — the 1,122 indigenous women missing across the country.
This Sunday, Kim Connors will lead the ringing of St George’s bell once for every missing women at noon. We offer our prayers for those missing, those who mourn, for the healing of all nations, and a special intercession for the Native Friendship Centre in our community.

We were delighted to have a packed house for the Suzie LeBlanc in the Round concert on Sunday afternoon. The doors opened just after 2pm, and soon we had a church full of enthusiastic music-lovers,  buzzing with anticipation!

All in all we had over 200 in the audience, bringing in $5000 to jumpstart our the renovation of the music room space!

Many thanks to the musicians — the Saint George’s Parish Choir, the Saint George’s Consort (Celeste Jankowski, Kirsty Money, Hilary Brown, Max Casper), guest artist David Greenberg, the fabulous Suzie LeBlanc, and of course the driving force behind this whole concert, our own Music Director Garth MacPhee, who played harpsichord, directed the choir, and sang (sometimes all at the same time!)

Special thanks also to those who helped make this happen behind the scenes — Dr Kathleen Jaeger, Janet Ross and Steven Burns, the Rev’d Debra Burleson, Henri Gauci, the Friends of Saint George’s Society, Cheryl Bell, Elisabeth Kleven, Davinia Wright, Matthew Stones, Jacquie de Mestral, Marilyn Melanson, and many others who helped us tell everyone about this exciting concert!
