Remembering


On November 11, 2010, Mennonite Church Saskatchewan's Peace and Justice Commission again sponsored a memorial service in downtown Saskatoon.  The holistic service took place outdoors in Rotary Peace Park and grieved losses resulting from war.  Repentance and a pledge to work for peace through non-violent means were also included.  The event was promoted through Mennonite Church Saskatchewan churches, word of mouth and the Prairie Centre for Ecumenism, an interchurch agency for the promotion of Christian unity on the Canadian prairies. The service was attended by representatives from Mennonite Church Canada's General Board, Area Churches and staff who were in town for Fall Leadership Assembly, along with about 70 other individuals.  The City of Saskatoon lit the peace pole flame for the service.
