St. Hilda’s Anglican Church is hosting a Truth and Reconciliation Sunday on April 26 with a special worship service, a pot luck lunch, a screening of the documentary film “The Healing Circle”, and a dialogue circle. This event is organized in anticipation of the release of the final report by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in May 2015. All members of the community are welcome.
The documentary “The Healing Circle” chronicles the courage, pain, and spirituality of Indigenous Anglicans dealing with their relationship with the Church and the impacts of residential schools on their communities. The screening will be followed by a dialogue circle led by Terry Aleck, a residential school survivors featured in the documentary.
Local residents and parishioners Nancy and John Denham will share their journey walking with our shíshálh neighbours through the Truth and Reconciliation process these past few years during the worship service at 10am. A pot luck lunch will follow the service. The screening will start at 1 pm, followed by a dialogue circle. Participants are welcome to stay for the monthly native drumming circle at 4pm.
St. Hilda’s Church is located at 5838 Barnacle Street in Sechelt besides Rockwood Centre.
