This coming Sunday marks an important date in the United Church’s year, and the Shawville congregation will be paying homage to a historically neglected part of Canada’s culture.
To coincide with Aboriginal Sunday in the United Church calendar, the Shawville United Church will feature a reconciliation service on June 17, with representatives from the local Indigenous community.
“We’re not doing any study events, it’s more exposure events,” explained Rev. Dr. Richard Hollingsworth, minister for Shawville United Church. “Exposing our congregation and having them to speak with Indigenous people.”
